Chimichurri Chicken

Dan Cooking

Phil came over tonight and we embarked on our long-standing mission to get Yuca Flour.  Whenever they serve it on the side at Bossa Nova with the grilled chicken, it’s like crack cocaine – oh so good!  I found a South American market down on Venice, so we headed over there and found exactly what we needed.  We snagged a few other things too, and came back to cook.  We marinated chicken in chimichurri, grilled it, served it with rice …

Grilling Chicken and Corn

Dan Cooking

Phil came over and we made dinner and watched Iron Man, which was fun.  We grilled chicken (two kinds – one marinated in some awesome Soy Vey Hoisin BBQ sauce, and the other covered in a nice selection of spices) as well as corn.  I learned quite a bit about how to properly BBQ chicken, as well as how to prepare corn to be cooked on the grill, so it was a great learning experience.  And it came out perfect!!

Grease Fire

Captain Obvious here.  Grease burns easily, and creates big pretty flames.  Grease comes from grilling meat, when the juices drip down into the grill.  When the grease builds up, and it’s right next to the flame, it can make big pretty flames when you don’t expect it. The lesson: clean the grill regularly. Capt. Obvious, out!
