Beer, Beer, Glorious Beer!

Right off the top, let me say that I am no great beer expert.  I HAVE been drinking more suds lately and enjoying them, but I am nowhere near as well traveled in beer as I am in single-malt whisky. …Continue

Years ago, I raised chickens. I used to 'candle' the eggs to make sure I wasn't going to crack open a chicken meat omelet in the pan at breakfast.

I sometimes wonder if "pro-lifers" have qualms about cooking and eating fertilized chicken eggs.  (That's the only kind the local "health food" store sells.)  I wouldn't buy, or use, them on a bet.  But I have a very twisted mind.

I made stir fry last night, but didn't take any pics.  Was too hungry.

I cheated; I used a  bag of frozen mixed "Asian" veg...snap peas, red bell peppers, a little onion, water chestnuts, sliced carrots,some broccoli florets, and a packet of sauce mix.  Sort of sweet and hot, but not very hot so I threw in a pinch of red pepper flakes.  I also added two more red bells (because I love them, and like red food), and I also tossed in another.   8 oz of fresh snap peas that I was saving.

Then I marinated some cooked chicken in Sesame - ginger dressing (with more red pepper flakes), And threw that in the pan just long enough to warm it all up.  Die-VOON!

Plenty of leftovers...for tonight and maybe even tomorrow.  I have some fresh broccoli that I might add to stretch it further.  IF I can get my fingers to work properly.  The last time I tried to peel broccoli stems, I couldn't hold the knife properly.  Maybe I should try a vegetable peeler.

I haven't been eating enough veg, I think that contributed to the gout.  Dammitall.  I like veg, but I dislike preparing most of them...I like stuff I can just rinse, maybe cut a bit, and toss in the skillet or the steamer.

Schwan's has these already roasted fingerling potatoes:

These special edition fingerling potatoes are creamier and sweeter than regular potatoes and are flame roasted in a seasoning blend of herbs and sea salt. Made with all natural red, purple and yellow fingerling potatoes.

$7.32 for 1.5 lbs...can be cooked in the oven (30 min) or nuked for 10 minutes.  (everything schwan's sells comes frozen.)  their fresh veg are flash-frozen right out of the field.  Kinda pricey, but very tasty.

I grew some blue potatoes one year.  If memory serves, they were good, but no better than the rest, so I've never tried them again.

I eat Yukon Gold and Russets.  Tried red ones a few times and didn't think they were worth the extra cost.

Comment by Patricia on February 20, 2014 at 5:02pm

I like the Yukon Golds too, but they seem to be very dry this year. We only have those, the reds, & russets to choose from here. Occasionally they sell the nugget type, but I'd love to try the different ones you guys are mentioning.

Trader Joes had some small yellow Dutch potatoes.  I bought some yesterday.  I have chives almost big enough to eat.  This is giving me an idea.....
