It’s getting chilly in Chile!

Steve and I are trying to see how long we can go without using heat, so far it’s been almost 2 years. Sometimes though, it’s colder inside than outside, so Leyna and I have to snuggle in my poncho!

You want me to put the can of beer, where?

Posted by Lisa on June 9th, 2007 — Posted in Misc

I found this recipe on line, and decided to make it. Steve had heard of it, but I never had. It ended up making a great and easy roast chicken. I did it indoors, since it’s cold and I didn’t feel like grilling. Hope you like it too!!!

Beer Butt Chicken (from Allrecipes.com)

1 cup butter
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons paprika
salt and pepper to taste
chiken seasoning to taste
1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer
1 (4 pound) whole chicken
1. Preheat an outdoor grill for low heat.
2. In a small skillet, melt 1/2 cup butter. Mix in 1 tablespoon garlic salt, 1 tablespoon paprika, salt, and pepper.
3. Discard 1/2 the beer, leaving the remainder in the can. Add remaining butter, garlic salt, paprika, and desired amount of salt and pepper to beer can. Place can on a disposable baking sheet. Set chicken on can, inserting can into the cavity of the chicken. Baste chicken with the melted, seasoned butter.
4. Place baking sheet with beer and chicken on the prepared grill. Cook over low heat for about 3 hours, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C).

Here’s a pic of my done chicken sitting up

Sail away

Posted by Lisa on January 30th, 2007 — Posted in Misc

While I was hiking today with my friend Rikki, we could see about 30 sailboats near the lighthouse sailing around. So for lunch, I picked Steve up and we went to investigate. Right next to the lighthouse is the falafel stand, so we decided to get lunch there. Of course, Steve decided not to eat, since he’s trying to eat only 1 meal a day, but I was starving. It was the best falafel ever. The last bite was so good and juicy that I ended up getting another one. Anyway, we then walked around the beach and watched the boats. They weren’t as colorful as some that i’ve seen, but impressive all the same. Here’s two of the better pics.

De las uvas a las pasas

Posted by Lisa on January 27th, 2007 — Posted in Misc

While driving up the Elqui Valley, for a nice days drive in the mountains and lunch at Pisco Elqui, we came across several places where it appeared some type of produce was being dried in the sun. At first, we thought it was aji (chilean peppers), but upon closer inspection we realized it was this.
