Friday, Football, and Food, OH MY!

Friday, Football, and Food, OH MY!

It’s Tailgating Time

It’s mid August, the kids are heading back to school soon, and the summer is just as boiling hot as ever, but we’ve all had one thing on our minds: Why didn’t they run the ball? 🙁

But now, the football season has returned (Superbowl round four?), and while we’re all jumping for joy, we remember that this time of the year is also peak grilling season, so we start jumping even higher. As this Friday rolls around, get your grills and your voices fired up, because you need to make sure you can still yell at your TV while you’re eating.

In case you haven’t already planned your first tailgate party recipes of the 2015-2016 football season, we at Aqua Quip decided to lend you, our fellow 12th men and women, a hand.

Orange Creamsicle Muddy Buddies
Grilled Potato Skins
Grilled Buffalo Chicken Burgers

You can’t grill everything…

In honor of easy snacks, great tasting desserts, and August 14th being “Orange Creamsicle Day”, here’s a super simple recipe for a fun twist on classic Muddy Buddies (or Puppy Chow if we must):

Orange Creamsicle Muddy Buddies

Ingredients:

  • 8 Cups of Rice Chex Cerealorange+creamsicle+buddies1
  • 1 1/2 cups white vanilla baking chips
  • 1/4 cup butter (mmm butter)
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp orange zest (about 1 1/2 large oranges)
  • 1 tsp orange extract
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Directions:

Measure 8 cups Rice Chex Cereal into a large mixing bowl (a super bowl, if you will…sorry). In a separate microwave-safe bowl, combine vanilla baking chips, butter, cream and orange zest. Microwave it on 50% power in 30 second intervals, periodically stirring it between each one until it’s creamy and smooth. Stir in the orange extract, mix that up, and then pour it over the Chex. Toss it up with a rubber spatula until all the Chex is happy and creamsicle-coated. From here, pour your delicious creation into a 2 gallon ziploc bag, add the powdered sugar and start shakin’. For an even more FANtastic twist, toss some blue and green M&Ms into the mix.

But you can grill these…

Grilled Potato Skins

Now that your sweet tooth is satisfied, let’s talk about savory. Our next recipe is a well known and loved appetizer: Potato skins. (I’m getting hungry just looking at the picture.) This recipe only yields eight delicious potato skins, so feel free to double (or triple) the recipe to make sure you’ve got enough for all of your party guests and family.

Ingredients 

potato-skins

  • 2 Large baking potatoes
  • 2 Tbs melted butter
  • 2 tsp minced rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled (“Everything’s better with bacon!” I always say.)
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Sour Cream

Directions:

Cut the potatoes lengthwise into four wedges. Cut away the meat of the potato so there is only 1/4 in. left on the skins. For tenderer potato skins, throw them in the microwave, uncovered, on high for  8-10 minutes. Combine the butter, roesmary, salt and pepper; brush over both sides of potato skins.

Now that the preparation is done, you can start grilling. Place the potatoes, skin side up, uncovered, over direct medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Flip the potatoes and position them over indirect heat for 2 more minutes and then top them with cheesy goodness. Cover and grill for 2-3 more minutes until the cheese is melted. Finally, sprinkle the bacon and onions on and serve it with sour cream. Yum.

Grilled Buffalo Chicken Burgers

We saved you the best for last. These savory and spicy buffalo chicken burgers will leave everyone completely satisfied, and the food coma that comes after will be totally worth it. Here’s how to build these beautiful buffalo burgers:

Ingredients:

For the patty:

  • 1 lb of ground chickengrilled and delicious buffalo chicken burger recipe for your football game tailgate party
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • salt
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 tsp minced dill weed
  • 1 tsp minced parsley

For the rest of the burger:

  • sliced mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Combine the ingredients for the patty in a mixing bowl and mix well. Form your burgers (whichever size you want) and throw the patties on your grill over medium-high heat for about eight minutes. Flip and grill for another 8 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. When they’re fully cooked, brush on some buffalo sauce and grill for another minute on each side.

Time to build your burger. Spread ranch dressing on the bottom bun and add blue cheese crumbles and tomato slices. Then add your buffalo chicken patty and top it off with the chopped green onion and mozzarella slices.

  2. In a small bowl whisk the sauce ingredients.
  3. In a medium bowl gently mix the patty ingredients. With wet hands, form four patties of equal size, each about ¾ inch thick. Don’t compact the meat too much or the patties will be tough. With your thumb or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 1 inch wide in the center of each patty. This will help the patties cook evenly and prevent them from puffing on the grill. Brush the tomato slices on both sides with the oil.
  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the patties over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, until they are cooked to medium doneness, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once when the patties release easily from the grate without sticking. During the last 4 minutes of grilling time, grill the tomato slices over direct medium-high heat until warmed through and tender, turning

How To Clean Your Hot Tub Filter

How To Clean Your Hot Tub Filter

A properly operating filter helps keep your hot tub water clear and clean by capturing the hair, oils and cosmetics that wash off when people use the spa. When the filter is dirty however, all that debris remains in the water. It is advised to clean your filter every 4-6 weeks with frequent use. Follow these easy steps to clean your filter:

IMG_1302

  1. Remove the cartridge.
  2. Rinse with a garden hose to remove loose debris.
  3. Use SpaGuard Filter Cleaner and Degreaser and follow the instructions on the label. This will dissolve and loosen built up oil and dirt.
  4. Thoroughly rinse the cartridge again.
  5. Let the cartridge dry.
  6. Return the cartridge to the filter housing.

That’s it! You are ready to enjoy your hot tub for another 4-6 weeks.

You should keep an eye on your filter for wear and tear and replace it if it is not functioning properly even after cleaning. Remember, Aqua Quip has an annual filter cleaning day where we clean your filter for free while
