Default A cookery lesson

Here is a chicken recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing -- imagine that. When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.

1 size 16 Chicken
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing
1 cup uncooked popcorn
Salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 175 degrees celcius.
Brush chicken well with melted butter salt, and pepper.
Fill cavity with stuffing mixed with popcorn.
Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven.

Listen for the popping sounds. When the chicken's arse blows the oven door open and the chicken flies across the room and lands on the table, it's done and ready to eat.

And, you thought I couldn't cook.

After that effort, I still believe you can't cook.

You're so right James, I'm one of what these days is an elite group of men who were lucky to have found and managed to keep the same wonderful lady for 56 years, and counting. Yesterday she told me that filling the kettle from an outside tap fed from a rainwater tank was becoming difficult due to Arthritis in her hands, so, without delay, this is how I solved the problem.

I was about to ask what the hell is a size 16 chicken. I know what a size 16 dress size is.

However, I was overcome with laughter and needed a drink !

(actually catching up with some posts whilst waiting for the Christmas cake to cook. Did the mincemeat, then mince pies last week! You can't buy mincemeat here. Do they sell it in Australia?)

Cheers

I was waiting for someone to come up with that question....LOL

size 16 is 1.6kg.

We cant compare that to a US 16lb chicken.....

You sure can buy it here (I just got that info from the boss) whilst there are Australian brands, she only buys "ROBERTSON'S" from England.
I'm pleased that James answered your other question because I hadn't a clue!

Unfortunately there is insufficient pressure from the weight of water in the tank to be any good for watering the garden using a hose and there is no point in fitting a pump because we have a bore that puts about as much water as the tank holds per watering three time per week. The hole is of course to allow the odd drips to pass through, and they really do! Whilst geography was far from my best subject, I do know that Australia has mountains and am sure that a fellow Aussie will join in and name them.

By the way Bob, you don't miss a single thing, even I hadn't realised that Marlene was holding a bunch of grapes. Whilst they were shop bought, I have great expectations of a bumper crop of our own this year.
