Snapshot: One year ago today

"Beer butt chicken"

Strange, but good! One of many recipes here, but the basic principle is that you cook it standing up with a opened beer can up its butt... Here shown taken out of the grill ready to be eaten.

I think this photo was also named "Doden i grytan" right? (=death in the pot).

Remember how good it was? Mmm.

Also, you mix the beer with spices to the chicken gets infused from the inside with chili, ketchup, and such.

And ketchup was never really made a vegetable, but Reagan's administration proposed it. Clinton's administration proposed that salsa is a vegetable too :)

I am not listening to anything here, just birdsong and humming hard drives.

Yes, it's the same picture. I named it after a H.K. Ronnblom (?) crime novel. :)

What about the Bush administration? I expect them to propose that a Texas longhorn steak is a vegetable. I mean, it is derived from that green stuff... ;)

The new vegetable in America is...

Looks delicious. Somewhere I have a recipe of meat cooked with Guinness and a chocolate cake with whisky included.

I would love to have a recipe for that...

Döden i grytan: The phrase is from the Bible (which H K Rönblom knew, I think.

2 Kings 4:40 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)

40 The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, "O man of God, there is death in the pot!" And they could not eat it.

So what was in the pot in the Bible? Were they poisoned or was it bad food? I had no idea this was in the Bible.

Or, maybe it was really something dead in the pot? Hmm, interesting.

And I found another book,

Death in the Pot: The Impact of Food Poisoning on History by Morton Satin

From the description:
"For example, in the early days of the Food and Drug Administration a "Poison Squad" was formed, consisting of young scientists who willingly acted as guinea pigs to test the toxic effects of chemical additives."
