more spicy beer chicken

I’m getting a little more comfortable when it comes to experimenting and/or winging it in the kitchen. This time I made some slow cooker chicken, which is becoming a staple for us.

This time I put in two chicken breasts which were mostly thawed, a bottle of New Holland Full Circle, and the following spices:

  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne

Then I put it on low for about 8 hours, and when it was done, used a spatula to break up the chicken. It turned out to be really tasty! A bit on the spicy side, but not so much that my sinuses truly cleared out, which means it could have been slightly spicier and it would have been okay with me. I chopped up some hearts of romaine and a red sweet pepper, and put some salsa on for good measure. I liked it in the taco shell, but even better as just a taco salad. It’s easier to eat that way!


sage advice, indeed.

An old pal of mine from the days of yore at The Bird has come up with some sound financial advice in this uncertain time, which I would like to share, because it is awesome:

“If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago, you would have $42 left.

With Lehman, you would have $6.60 left. With Fannie or Freddie, you would have less than $5 left.

But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND,you would have had $214.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.”
