Basics...The bottom line

The other day I was thinking about basic provisions and the first thing that came to mind was garlic, followed closely by onions, but garlic is almost always the beginning of whatever gets cooked on "So It Goes".

Which is why My Sisters Kitchen caught my eye this morning with tales of Mojo de Ajo...

Hope for Tiki culture...

One of the real problems with the whole Tiki food and drink thing is that the basics are not really there. Where to find the needful stuff for a real Mai Tai or a Zombie is often a whole lot  problematic!

I long ago gave up drinking Tiki drinks in bars as they were never ever right and sadly most people think that what passes for tropical drink is just bad rum, fruit punch and too much sugar... Face it, it's a lot more than a cute mug and a swizzle stick!

Enter Trader Tiki who is doing stuff right with an interesting product line of ingredients for folks who feel that a Mai Tai should actually taste like a Mai Tai.

More chicken... PIZZA!

I was just working though this weeks coming menu on "So It Goes" and the word pizza just kind of resonated...

Baker's Banter had a recent post on a Thai fusion pizza that is just the sort of thing to use up those chicken leftovers... Spicy!

I'm still working out the best way to bake on our BBQ and it is an ongoing project but the big advantage is that it does not heat up the interior of the boat...

Chicken on the grill...

Down here in the Caribbean chicken, is more often than not, what's for dinner! Being that it is, one tends to appreciate and keep a wary eye out for good chicken recipes for the grill...

Grilling Companion has just the ting!
