Well, folks, weekend at last. Thank GOD.
Y’know that Teriyaki chicken I was going to make last weekend? Well, I’m making it this weekend instead. I couldn’t do it last weekend for a number of different reasons, not the least of which was lack of time. So, this weekend, I took steps to prepare in advance.
First off, I spatchcocked the chicken. Heh. Love doing that anyway, but this time it was a bit more challenging. LOML pulled the chicken out of the freezer this afternoon, put it in bowl of water for me to let it thaw and warm up a bit before I got home, and even made the new supplemental batch of marinade from the same recipe we used a couple of weeks ago. I tore the ribs out of the mass of chickeny evil, and the wish bone and the … whatever bones, analogous to the collar bones for us bipeds. Then we took the remaining marinade from the last time we made Teriyaki out of the freezer and let it thaw over the course of the day. By the time I got home, things were ready to get started.
So, as mentioned, I spatchcocked the chicken after dinner, and then stuffed it into a gallon freezer zip bag with the marinade, topped off with the new stuff. The rest of the new stuff will be reduced down for a basting sauce tomorrow. A grocery trip will take place early and when it’s done, the chicken will have been soaking its almost boneless ass in the juice for almost 24 hours. I’ll have charcoal at the ready and the indirect grilling goodness will commence. Yay. Gonna be good.
Other than that, nothing really going on this weekend. Just errands and stuff. But I thought I’d show you this weird search term before I sign off. It’s not sick, but it’s weird.
As you can see, this is bizarre. I do not know, nor have I ever to my knowledge, written anything discussing, mentioning or even implying a south Australian school holiday from 1944. I wasn’t even an itch in my daddy’s pants in 1944, because what he had in his pants at that time was about a year old. How would I know what holidays schools had in Australia in 1944?? People! Please!
On another note, completely unrelated, my bio-data/biodata strategy is working gangbusters. I’m not getting comments, but I’m getting butt-loads of visitors. I’m pretty consistently in the 70′s for pageviews, and have been as high as 88 recently. So, those in south central Asia love their bio-data/biodata marriage proposals, and are looking me up and finding the information they seek in my bio-data/biodata Nirvana. I may next tell the world how much Chicago sucks and steal some of my wife’s traffic.
Well, nothing more to say, really. I hope you all have a good Saturday, and I’ll let you know, maybe with pictures if possible, how the chicken Teriyaki turns out.
God bless, everyone!
