Now that is a good looking chicken stew.
Thought you might be interested in some news from Japan. Those folks are in a tight spot.
“Relief supplies have only trickled into the long strip of northeast Japan demolished by a powerful earthquake and the wave it unleashed a week ago, leaving affected communities to fend for themselves.
Many have risen to the occasion.”
“People here aren’t angry or frustrated yet. … But it’s a big question mark whether we can keep living like this for weeks or months,” said Sasaki, who is not related to Noriko. “I try to concentrate on what I need to do this morning, this day, and not think about how long it might last.”
Dang, where’s the recipe for that dish in the photo?
Tough stuff indeed, Cold. I can’t imaging what it must be like to suddenly lose everything.
The photograph is of Korean spicy chicken stew.
Here’s a recipe for that from Nibbledish.com:
1 whole chicken (get pre-sliced ones from Perdue)
2 medium size potatoes
1/2 large onion
3 long hot green pepper (use 2 if you’re suffering from GERD)
1/3 carrot or use 7 baby carrots
2 tbs Korean red pepper power (get it from local Asian grocery or Hmart.com)
1 tbs maltose syrup
2 tbs minced garlic
2 cups water
3 tbs soy sauce
1. Wash the chicken and put them into a pot about 12 inch depth)
2. Prep potatoes, onion, hot pepper, scallion, and carrot into bite size. (pref. 2 * 2)
3. Get a medium size bowl and mix all of the sauce ingredients. (no lump !!!)
4. Then place 2 + 3 into 1 and stir them well
5. Place the pot on a stove in medium heat setting
6. When it starts to boil then cover and reduce heat to simmer for about 20-30 mins. (stirring occasionally)
7. Serve with a glass of Chianti ( or you can try korean so-ju)
Well, I just cannot understand why the American people continue to allow this evil Geo Bush to make war on foreign nations for the benefit of BIG OIL. First it was “free Kuwait” with Gulf War 1. Then we go on to Iraq and then BACK to Afghanistan and of course it just pains me so to even think about all those poor muslims in Getmo. They have their right too you know. We are turning our back on problems right here at home to simply make BIG OIL and all of Bush’s friends richer. Just goes to show how reckless a idiot chief Ex can be. We need congressional action to support such a war. Ah, huh, what’s that??? Say what? Bush is NOT the president???? You gotta be kidding! You mean this war was initiated by a DEMOCRAT? You mean Obama and Hillary are calling the shots? OH. I got it. THIS action is in support of the PEOPLE of an oppressed dictator. OK, that’s better. Now I understand. Damn, sure felt stupid there for a minute!!!!!!
Don’t know about that one, but it looks a bit like one I like to make:
* 1 roasting chicken, about 4 to 5 pounds, cut up, bone left in
* 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
* 1 1/2 cups water
* 1/2 cup sherry
* 2 teaspoons salt
* 1/2 teaspoon pepper
* 2-4 white onions (depending on size), halved or quartered *1
* 1 green bell pepper and 1 red bell pepper cut up
* 2-3 carrots sliced lengthwise
* 1 turnip or rutabaga cut in chunks *1
* 1 potatoes, cut in chunks *1
* 1 can tomatoes
* 1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn
* 1/3 cup flour mixed with 1/2 cup cool water to form a paste
* Salt, pepper, ground cumin, to taste
(for variation substitute various curry seasonings for the cumin)
(*1 Note, onions, turnip or rutabaga, and potatoes should be cut to a size that fill a spoon.)
Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or heavy pot. Add the chicken pieces; brown on all sides. Add water, sherry, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes.
Add raw vegetables, cover and simmer for another 35 to 45 minutes.
Add canned tomatoes, cover and bring back to a slow simmer.
Stir in the flour and water mixture; continue cooking while stiring until stew is thickened, about 5-10 minutes.
Serve over rice or noddles, if desired.
Serves 6 +/-.
Dang, Dan posted the actual one, while I was typing.
Having been to a few flood sites and a number of other post disaster sites, I have seen (but never experienced, thank God) the heartbreak, up close.
For some reason a flood always seemed more gut-wrenching, that other natural disasters.
I think it is the smell.
Thanks for the recipe, Dan.
Where is the MSM on this story?
Investigators discovered that Mills had cut corners and even falsified reports in one case. He found DNA where it didn’t exist, and failed to find it where it did. His mistakes may have let the guilty go free while the innocent, such as House, were convicted.
But the problem was bigger than just a lone analyst.
While a McClatchy investigation revealed that Mills’ mistakes undermined hundreds of criminal cases brought against military personnel, it also found that the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory, near Atlanta, was lax in supervising Mills, slow to re-examine his work and slipshod about informing defendants. Officials appeared intent on containing the scandal that threatened to discredit the military’s most important forensics facility,
Echos of the infamous FBI lead analysis scandal.
McClatchy newspapers are part of the “MSM.”
They broke the story — today. There will be folos in other media outlets, but it may take awhile. ABC didn’t get onto the U.S. Navy Vets scandal until Nov. 2010, remember?
You are right Dan.
I should have said where have they been or where are the rest of them.
Nearly three years of cover-up!?!?
Surely someone had a clue.
I’m behind on my reading, tonight, but both wings of our little family of bloggers might find the following and interesting read:
More than 400 years ago, William Shakespeare wrote a riveting tragedy about a young, charismatic Danish prince who vowed to do the right thing in avenging his murdered father. That soon proved easier said than done. As a result, Hamlet couldn’t quite ever act in time — given all the ambiguities that such a sensitive prince first had to sort out. In the meantime, a lot of bodies piled up through his indecision and hesitancy.
President Barack Obama wanted to give us all universal health care. But then he discovered that the country was broke and that most people did not like his massive federal takeover. So we got his health care and so far more than 1,000 exemptions from his landmark plan for unions, corporations and entire states.
SNIP [of observations of other issues]
Worrying about pleasing everyone ensures pleasing no one. Once again such “conscience does make cowards of us all.”
Hamlets, past and present, are as admirable in theory as they are fickle — and often dangerous — in fact.
Another link to a very good read on wavers / exemptions — which could set case law well beyond just the health care law issues. However, this argument could give SCOTUS another narrower cut at the issue — and SCOTUS nearly always like to go narrower.
As argued in these pages, these waivers are an unconstitutional exercise of the dispensing power, which creates a power above law and thereby threatens equal rights under law. The point here, however, is more basic. The constitutional defense of the health-care waivers has thus far been a defense of waivers in general, without attention to the realities of the health-care statute. As a result, the defense of the waivers not only is wrong on the Constitution but also is irrelevant to the statutory realities.
These articles are a good insight into briefs being tuned.
INAL, but 1,000+ exemptions give to nationwide unions, nationwide / worldwide corporations and entire States smell like something is rotten in Denmark, or somewhere.
Liberal Democrats in uproar over Libya action
A hard-core group of liberal House Democrats is questioning the constitutionality of U.S. missile strikes against Libya, with one lawmaker raising the prospect of impeachment during a Democratic Caucus conference call on Saturday.
Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.
“Barack Obama wanted to give us all universal health care.”
No, he didn’t. Single payer was never on the table, and the public option was bargained away before the bill was even written in a deal with big insurance and pharma in exchange for their “support”. Wellpoint VP Liz Fowler actually wrote the bill as general counsel on Max Baucas’ Senate
committee. The PPACC was written BY the insurance companies FOR the insurance companies with a few crumbs of reform thrown in to appease the masses. They have already figured out how to bypass most of the bill’s provisions, but that’s another post.
Sorry, that’s the PPACA.
“massive federal takeover.”
Another right-wing fallacy, the government hasn’t taken over anything. We are still buying the same overpriced product from the same companies that have been fleecing us for decades. You forget, the individual mandate was included in the law at the request of Big Insurance to widen the risk-pool. Attempting to overturn the provision on Constitutional grounds may actually lead to the nightmare scenario you so vehemently abhor, single payer.
“Attempting to overturn the provision on Constitutional grounds may actually lead to the nightmare scenario you so vehemently abhor, single payer.”
Ding, ding ding ding, we have a winner! Obama ran on single payer got elected on single payer and immediately betrayed everyone who voted for him. The best that could happen is for HCR to be overturned and to start all over.
Something you will not see on the main stream media!
Ah, yes, the newspaper founded by the same guy who loved Adolph Hitler and the Brownshirts.
Quite a different reality than the “The world loves and respects 0bama and America” meme.
In truth, America was well-respected under Bush because we were strong, stood behind our promises, and defended liberty. Under 0bama, we are laughingstocks.
Yeah Gary those oh so Conservative people really don’t like the “leftist Obama”…Oh wait:
“The protest, which had around 400 hundred participants (including children) was organized by a national trade union and popular organization CSP-Conlutas, the Free National Assembly of Students (ANEL) and a number of labor unions. It was also supported by the United Socialist Workers Party, a national left-wing party known as the PSTU.
As it was publicly announced in the local media, the protest (and many others which were happening around the country) was called to denounce Obama’s visit as part of a process of surrendering our national resources, mainly oil, through so-called “free trade” agreements that can only damage the Brazilian population.”
What could Brazil possibly have against us?
It must really steam the American rightys that socialists in Brazil protested Obama and his “Yankee captialism.” Unlike the RWers here, they’re not deluded about Obama’s political orientation.
If 0bama is a capitalist, the Bolsheviks were capitalists. Stock market is going to hell. I just hope there’s something left by the time we get the Dems completely out of power. I think they’re going scorched earth in the little time they have.
#21 So let’s see, Gary M, a WHOLE 300 people protest the U.S., apparently because it is too conservative. Notice the paper you link to never mentions why the folks are protesting. Snicker.
stock market is going to hell.”
Folks, the market is far higher today than it was when Bush left office. And as of 11:50 a.m., it was up 200 points.
IF Suzie really has money in the market, she has a lot more of it since Obama took office.
IF Suzie really has money in the market, she has a lot more of it since Obama took office
So Senator 0bama and his party helped screw us out of our money, and now you want me to credit him that the market has risen somewhat from the nadir he caused. That’s real bright, Dan. Let’s hope you pronounced those words Saturday better than you make sense today.
“Folks, the market is far higher today than it was when Bush left office. And as of 11:50 a.m., it was up 200 points.”
Folks,the stock market reached 14,000 an all time high under George Bush in 2007.
But after the GOP lost its majority in Congress in 2007, the Dow took its worst one-year plunge in history…
The market being at 14,000 in July 2007 right before this nation learned of the duplicity that would decimate us, should tell you a whole lot about the reliability, fallibility, veracity and capability of the market. It is a snapshot not the whole story.
“Anadarko Petroleum Corp (NYSE:APC – News) on Monday signed a $1.55 billion deal with state-owned Korea National Oil (KNOC) for one-third of the U.S. company’s interest in the Eagle Ford shale in South Texas.”
Yeah so much for American drilling for American oil.
Anadarko, KNOC sign $1.55 billion Eagle Ford deal
Drill baby Drill for Korea!
#30 Folks, the market took that plunge primarily because of factors set up by a Republican president and Republican Congress.
