Not much to write today. Home cooking:
Arroz con pollo. Man, I love this stuff. I could say I love it as a very very very close second to paella! I love paella. But when the Food Pimp makes arroz con pollo, it's really almost as good as his paella, and cheaper too!
So, I have been roasting chicken so often, because it's easy and it's cheap. This was a hispanic type of roast chicken with coriander and new mexico chili powder. About 30 minutes before I pulled the chicken out of the oven, I threw in sliced onions and garlic. Ten minutes before pulling it out (feel free to insert a dirty joke here), I put in chick peas and (frozen) green beans. They just bathed in the chicken juices. Yum. Chicken juice bath. All the dogs in the neighborhood would be chasing me if I did that!
Black beans were simple. Onion, garlic, coriander, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Then, I took the leftover polenta from the Newman's Own demo #2, and I diced it and fried it up like home fries. I gotta say, it was a pretty good dinner. Toot Toot! (my own horn)
