Grill-Worthy Recipe Tips for the Weekend:
This weekend, try serving up one of Stop & Shop’s flavorful and affordable recipes, such as “True Blue Burgers” or “Grilled Peaches with Sweet & Tangy Sauce.”
While you’re grilling, don’t forget to use a meat thermometer to avoid harmful bacteria such as E. coli. Follow these temperature suggestions to ensure the perfect meal:
- Ground beef hamburgers – 160oF. Cooking ground beef until the pink is gone is not always an indicator of thorough cooking as it can still be pink inside and cooked to a safe 160oF. Color is not always a true indicator.
- Ground and whole poultry – 165oF
- Chops, steaks and roasts from beef, veal or lamb – 145oF for medium rare, 160oF for medium and 170oF for well done
- Pork chops and roast – 150oF
- Fin fish – 145oF
- Shrimp, lobster and crabs – Cooked until the flesh is pearly and opaque

Looking for the best Mother’s Day gift? Tickets to the Boston Bites Back event is at the top of the list.
Join 100 of Boston’s top chefs as they come together in a show of strength and solidarity to raise $1 million for The One Fund.
Spearheaded by celeb chefs Ken Oringer & Ming Tsai, the Boston Red Sox, Governor Patrick, Mayor Menino, and ARAMARK, Boston Bites Back (BBB) will be a once-in-a-lifetime tasting event at Fenway Park bringing Bostonians together to eat, drink and demonstrate Boston’s unrelenting spirit, while raising money for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
“BBB is an opportunity for the city to join as one and acknowledge our strength as a community,” said Ken Oringer, owner of Clio, Toro, Copa & Uni. “Nothing speaks more to our collective resolve than an evening of hospitality, unity and hometown pride in one of the most iconic venues in Boston – Fenway Park.”
“Food is our common ground, a universal experience,” said Ming Tsai, owner of Blue Ginger & Blue Dragon. “This event is an occasion for Bostonians to reconnect over food, mingle with chefs and honor our city’s inspiring resilience. It’s an opportunity for Bostonians to literally ‘bite’ back.”
Held Wednesday, May 15, 2013 from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM at Fenway Park, chefs will be cooking and serving guests from behind concession stands as well as at tables throughout the Big Concourse and the Budweiser deck.
Only 5,000 general access tickets will be sold at $200 each. There will also be 200 VIP tickets at $1,000 each, allowing additional access to an intimate and exclusive gathering in Fenway’s EMC Club.
An online auction leading up to the event will feature many one-of-a-kind packages including unique dining experiences from Oringer & Tsai, personal shopping with fashion expert Gretta Monahan, and hometown sports venues.

In response to the Boston Marathon tragedy, Rock Paper Scissors Toy Store in Duxbury is launching the “You are Brave” campaign.
“We are asking children who want to help, to draw pictures or write letters focusing on the many brave acts that occurred. We understand many children are worried, confused and looking for a way to help, and we hope this idea will provide a way for them to make a difference. We will deliver the letters and drawings to those recovering in local hospitals, to police stations and fire stations, and to volunteers at the Boston Athletic Association. We plan to deliver the first batch this Friday, April 19, and will continue to deliver every Friday until there are no more to deliver.
“For parents, we are setting up a fund to help the victims and will match any donation up to the first $1,000. If you are interested in donating to help the victims, please drop off or mail a check to RPS P.O. Box 1315, Duxbury, MA 02331, made out to the RPS You Are Brave Fund. All money will be donated to the victims to help with their recovery.”
