You remember those shoes that had the little pump in them? They were supposed to make you jump better or something, I remember really wanting a pair when I was a teenager. Don't know if they still make them.

Today's vote incentive was an extra panel!

This is one's semi-autobiographical. Paige has discovered a new recipe, it's basically a chicken risotto, only instead of rice it uses barley. It's delicious, but me oh my does it ever make me gassy. I woke us both up this morning with a loud sustained note, like Luciano Pavarotti had finally decided he was, in fact, *happy* to have been reincarnated as my ass.

Paige was all like

Fortunately, it was not literally massive, and we giggled for a bit and went back to sleep.

I'll see if I can get Paige to share the recipe.

It's true. I was really impressed. Until the smell hit. Then I turned the fan on and made it point at him so it would blow away from me.

But it is very good chicken, and loaded with fiber, hence all the farting.

Paige's Farty Chicken

1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
2 large shallots
1 garlic clove, crushed and chopped
2 sticks celery
3 skinless chicken breasts
300g pearl barley
250ml white wine
400g mushrooms (I like either button or chestnut mushrooms)
1 tbsp thyme
1 ltr hot chicken stock
3 tbsp grated parmesan
chopped chives to garnish
100g spinach

1. In a large, heavy saucepan heat the butter and oil. Saute the shallot with the celery and garlic until softened. Add the chicken and cook until white on the outside.

2. Add the barley and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the wine and stir until it is absorbed. Add the mushrooms and thyme, then pour over the stock. Cook for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Remove from the heat and stir in the spinach and parmesan until the spinach is just wilted. Top with chopped chives and serve immediately.

@NtKPaige That really DOES sound good. I may have to copy that down.

That bonus panel Poor, poor Alice.

That chicken sounds good. Everything I eat turns me into a vocal tuba anyway, so I doubt anyone will notice the difference. I mean, no one has started keeping detailed, scientific notes YET...

And I'll do anything for science.

HAha this is too funny!!!! And the chicken sounds good too...
