My Super Bowl 2020

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

SuperBowl 2020 is going to find me doing some serious couch time. I’m relaxing this year. It’s one of those rare events where family isn’t coming home, and I have no plans to do anything but pretend I’m a sloth most of the day.

While I won’t be cooking up anything special today, there have been past Super Bowls, with a couple favorites I have enjoyed! I often do most of the cooking.  However, on some days, the guys in the family will man the coals, knives, and skewers instead – that’s because guys generally cook best when flames and swords are involved.

So For a great guy kind of Super Bowl feast, try Beer Can Chicken, a recipe that has become popular in recent years.  In addition to the Chicken, I like serving Greek Orzo Salad. The two complement each other. I’m posting the recipes below to Carol Williams party as well as Anna Banana's.

 
BEER CAN CHICKEN



INSTRUCTIONS:

Rub down the chickens, while you are allowing the coals to burn bright and mature to the proper stage for cooking the chickens. While this is happening, open the same number of beer cans, for the number of chickens you will be cooking. 

The next step is very important - Open the beer cans, and allow the BBQ guys to drink half of each can of beer, along with any beer they already have in their other hand:-)  This accomplishes two things. (1) It keeps the guys humored, while the coals are being tended, and (2) it will allow you to place the half full cans of beer into the chicken butts without spilling. 

When the coals are ready, place all the standing chickens up on their beer cans onto the grill.  The liquid inside the can boils forcing flavor up and through the meat. It also provides entertainment while watching the little chickens on the grill, when they appear to dance around giving new meaning to the Chicken Dance. You can use fruit juice in a can instead.  I know that apple cider is also

Myrl Jeffcoat , thank you for the orzo pasta salad recipe. Long time ago, I used to make the beer can baby, not on a grill but in the oven. It always turned out very moist and tender.

Sham Reddy CRS - Add the fact that today is also Ground Hog Day, and it just seems a natural time for slothing! 

Brian England - You should try cooking one this way.  I think you would like it!

Michael Jacobs - You got me curious, so I Googled what sloths eat.  It turns out there are two toed sloths, and there are three toed sloths.  I Googled what they ate, and each of those species has a different diet.  Here's what Google says:

Two-toed sloths are omnivorous, meaning they can consume plants and animals. Their diet includes fruits, leaves, insects and small lizards. Three-toed sloths, on the other hand, are almost entirely herbivorous (plant eaters).

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Your absolutely right!  It's like a mini vacation.  Only better because you don't need to pack!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I couldn't agree more.  Slothing should be an Olympic event! 

Joe Pryor - Super Bowl Sunday is a good day to be hungry!  I hope you enjoy the day!

Anna Banana Kruchten Broker/Owner, CRB, CRS - I like it because it's fairly simple to make.  Especially, if you can pawn the job off onto the guys.

Eva B. Liland Century 21 Doug Anderson - I have also made this chicken in the oven.  Especially, when weather outside is too hot or too cold.

Myrl Jeffcoat - You have enriched my knowledge of diet and number of toes on a sloth! That photograph of the grilled chicken is very, very tempting! And that Greek Pasta Salad looks delicious too! I'm glad to hear you had a lovely day and took the time to write such a nice post. I always enjoy your writing and how you express yourself through words and photos. You really know how to reach your audience!

Hi Myrl:

Hope you had a lazy Super Bowl Day as planned.

The rub for the chicken sounds great - I'll have to try it as we do a lot of grilling. And the orzo salad looks great - another favorite of mine.

Hi Myrl, We had the chance to enjoy beer chicken not too long ago.  Not as spiced up as your recipe, but it was very tender.  Will have to try your recipe some time.  Thank you!

Myrl Jeffcoat, I almost missed your two great recipes.  I have never prepared  Beer Can Chicken and I am certainly going to try it at one of our
future family parties.  Also, the first time I ever had Orzo Greek Pasta Salad was just a few months ago - loved it!  Have a wonderful Friday!!
