Chicken Skewers And Super Bock. (What Do You Want For Your Tea?)

This is turning into a food blog.  Thanks for all the comments and I have been getting a lot more views every day.  I suppose we have all got to eat haven't we?  The usual early morning conversation in our house is:

"What do you want for your tea?"

ME:  "Dunno."

We some times go to the Chinese Restaurant and Take Away in Bantry.  We never eat in and I usually order Beef in Black Bean sauce.  The missus will order her: Chips and Curry sauce.  The lads usually order Chicken Skewers with Rice.  Our house is full of cook books and we are always scouring the T'web and T'internet for new recipes to try.  So yesterday we had a go at making chicken skewers.  They only cost 10 Euros to make and they went down really well.  Here's how you make them:

Get 4 chicken breasts (one for each person) and we cut them into one inch chunks and we covered them in honey and pushed them onto skewers.  Then they where placed in the cooker (range) and cooked for about half an hour, turning once until the juices run clear. Serve with rice or chips.

We enjoyed them.  Let me know if you like them.  

On Saturday. The local supermarket and off licence in town had run out of Newcastle Brown on Saturday.  I have been able to get this wonderful English beverage since 2012.  So I searched through the shelves of stout, lager and bitters...  When I set my eyes on my old friend: Super Bock.

If you have ever been to Portugal.  You will have seen this beer for sale.  I think it was two Euros fifty a pint (big glass) when we last went to the Algarve.   I hope to go there next year.  This time we will probably explore the Silver Coast and higher up.  Places like Lisbon, Porto and the Douro wine region... 

I chilled the beers in the fridge.  They brought sunny Portugal all back to me.  Cheers!   Where are you going next year on your holidays?


  1. Simple tasty chicken and a cold beer. Sounds great, though I'd rather have your Chinese. No such thing here. Bring on your dinners. Great reading.

  2. Hi LA. We are really enjoying making Chinese food. It never repeats on you and you never feel bloated. Have a go at making the chicken skewers. They are really cheap to make and would be great for for a barbecue. Thanks for your encouragement!

  3. We cook Japanese and Indian all the time. Not as hard as it sounds.
    I am hoping to go and see family in Japan next year.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Hi AP. We cook a lot of Indian. Never tasted Japanese. Must try it. Enjoy your holiday in Japan.

  5. we eat a lot of Thai, Japanese and Chinese food here. Not the stuff that you would see in a take away. I would like to learn more Japanese, as it is more fish and tofu. But it is an easy food for us as there is no dairy in most of it.

  6. Hi Sol. You should show your Thai, Japanese and Chinese food on your blog. We are always looking for interesting foods and recipes to try. Chili Con Carne for tea tonight!

  8. How Herbal Medicine Cured me completely. Does anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural supplements and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. My Diabetes was totally cured with natural herbs. Earlier this year I was diagnosed type 2 diabetes and my blood sugar was very high, I was recommended to use insulin medication which later have side effect on my health, I decided to stop using insulin medication and was recommended to use Herbal medicine after I read series of testimony of doctor ELINFOH Herbal medicine on the internet, bloggers site and radio stations, I purchased Dr.ELINFOH  herbal medicine for diabetes which he sent to my address through a delivery company and I received the herbal medicine within a couple of weeks  and the doctor directed me how to use the herbal medicine for 21 days. After concluding the herbal medicine I decided to go for a blood test and my blood sugar was detected to be normal, Today I am diabetes free with no side effects. Contact Dr ELINFOH  via  email: drelinfohherbalhome@gmail.com  or Call/Whatsapp +2348110492072 for more information.
