You mean burn the dead flesh of fellow creatures? Cool and drink the byproducts of dead yeast?

Shall we also make ice cream?

End of a long week, nice to have a three day weekend. MOM wonders if anyone wants to crank up the barbecue and singe some meat? Someone else can fill the cooler full of ice and beer.

I make soup stock from the carcass of a rotisserie chicken by putting it in a pan with enough water just to cover most of the bones. You don't want it real watery. Put a lid on and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Don't add veggies to this, just get the meat flavor. Add veggies when you make the soup.

It was the remains of a Costco rotisserie roasted chicken after the easy meat had been sliced off. I pout that into a crockpot with "some" water and an array of vegetables based on what was abvailable. It doesn't matter--say, for example, half an onion, a cupful of fresh parsley, slice some carrots, or what have you.

I found it most annoying having to strain out the chicken bones which had fallen apart in the soup. I think it was ten hours on medium heat.

Behead the chicken and let the blood drain well.

A Costco roaster might already be cooked.

Sounds gruesomely delicious, Rap.

SRS... yes, I had wondered about "a roaster from Costco" which is one of the reasons for my questions. How long do you crock it or simmer it?

I suspect that Costco, like Sam's Club, sells a rotisserie chicken ready to eat as soon as you get that container home. I have also done what Amos described, gathered up the bones, skin, and drippings from the microwavable container and put them in a pot (or crockpot) to simmer to create a broth to use for soup. Waste not, want not. I use the broth in soup or use it as the stock when I'm making rice. Delicious!

Kill, clean, and pluck a chicken. Be sure to singe off any feather stubs.

Kill some onions, carrots, celery, and potatoes. Rip them from the earth, cut off their heads (and tails), and wash them. Then flay them. Cut them into pieces and throw them in a crock pot.

Drop the carcass of the dead chicken in and drown everything with water and/or crushed, fermented grapes.

Throw in some innocent parley leaves and perhaps some rosemary you tore from the main stalks.

Plug in the crock pot and cover it. Set the heat to "low" so that the innocent beings you've thrown together will be boiled.

At some point you might want to toss in noodles, composed of never-born baby chickens, the dried and crushed gametes of wheat, and water or milk taken from the mouths of calves.

Some salt and pepper, the first raped from Mother Earth and the second the dried and crushed hopes of a pepper plant.

When everything is soft and mushy removed the bones and skin of the chicken you murdered and skim off the oil rendered from its fat.

Serve and enjoy.

Details man. I need details. So, one raw chicken, one mess* of (chopped?) parsley, one mess** of (chopped? yellow?) onion, some (lots? to cover?) water. Low setting for ? hours. Were veggies involved? Was alcohol... never mind. What size crockpot?

*mess of parsley = handful?
** mess of onion = one or more?

P.S. Now, reply only if you have nothing better to do and consider me a friend. No pressure. >;-)

HAd a buncha kooks over for diner to celebrate BBW's birthday. Cooked a chicken--well, at least I served a roaster from Costco. Threw the carcass in a crockpot with a mess of parsley and onion and H2O etc. and it worked on this mess overnight, and all the bones had disconnected and the soup was delicious.

Here's my review... It ain't no by reservation only penthouse dining experience. It's good food at good prices with good service. Must be okay because Vito is worth millionssss.

BTW, the 1kg lasagna at Costco is $8 (4 meals or 2 'that was too much' meals).

...We recently went with a group to Vitos for lunch ("oh, come on, the food's good"). When I got there I order the lasagna - how could anyone mess up the lasagna? When the dish was place in front of me, I saw that it was indeed not remotely reminiscent of any lasagna I've previously had. It was composed solely of lasagna noodles and leftover spaghetti sauce (that tasted deplorable). No eggplant or spinach or cheeses.

The appetizer I ordered was also uneatable...

Again, restaurant popularity in New Brunswick, Canada does not equate with "good" food. In fact, I've learned that if a restaurant is "popular", then the dishes will be inadequate for someone who appreciates fine fare....

Ain't no Tim's near here, but there is a Tim's-owned subsidiary, Cold Stone Creamery, not very far from where I sit. Ain't no Dunkin Donuts, no Krispy Kreme, no Dixie Cream, no nothin'. Cops gotta go inside The Donut Shop to pick 'em up, or eat the ones from Albertson's or the various Kroger stores (Fred Meyer, Smith's, etc.). Or the ones from Winco or Ridleys. The Donut Shop uses the original Spudnut recipe and they're pretty good but awful pricey.

As for coffee, there's S******ks, Snake River Coffee, Mocha Madness (I gave up on them when they'd never heard of Kenya AA), and a bunch more.

Tea? We got everything from Liptons to Red Rose to Yorkshire Gold.

Demarara sugar, Powers, thick cream, good coffee -- what more do you want? Oh, I see -- scones! Well, we've got those too, freshly made and warm with honey butter.

Two more cucumbers this morning, MOM. It seems like they shoot up overnight, from too small one day to too large the next. I'll leave these in the fridge for salads and use the small ones for pickles. Will someone dust out a pot so I can boil some water and vinegar?

HI! m. Bye m.

One crossing, with a load of new recruits, was made in winter and it was rough. The head was 8 pots in a row forward athird ship, parallel to keel. The plumbing system was essentially ocean/ship driven, in one port and out another. Smooth sailing meant smooth shitting. Rough seas meant rough ass. The two seats in the middle were sought after with great intensity. My old man was a Lewey so he got to shit in the officers quarters. He was also a medic and he dealt with two incidents of severe sprains, one of which also had a broken wrist. "Injured while defecating." on the treatment record must have raised some eyebrows. That guy was on an end pot and got lifted into the 7' high ceiling.

Come on in, the water's fine.

That's the problem, or was the problem. The waters were roiling and waves dashed as over the deck as far as the forward 5" gun turret as we plowed the waters of the North Atlantic in winter. Sub patrol, and we were on the open bridge of the old destroyer. Then, sonar pinged a sub, a U-boat! We changed course and brought the old girl to flank speed...this one wasn't going to get away! Another course correction put up parallel to the U-boat and we ran right over the top of her. As we did so I ordered "Roll six! and as we passed six depth charges fell, three from each of our stern racks.

Explosions, and then a bubble, and then a slick of oil...the U-boat was dead and our shipping, at least for a while, safe.

Then the radio demanded we return to port...the German Embassy was quite annoyed, the war being over for better than twenty years and all...

I lost my naval commission for some silly reasons, but as I left the Admiral said to me, "Good attack and good work. Too bad it's not 1943. Now THERE was service! I remember I was an ensign on an old open-bridge destroyer, the waves of the stormy North Atlantic crashing over the bow as we plowed the waters in search of U-boats...."

He had the vacant stare of an Old Reminiscing Sailor in his eyes and I managed to sneak away. I never again saw that look until Amos started one of his sea stories at Getaway....

He has an aunt and an uncle in Seattle and environs, and there are lots of mudcatters.
