Speaking of Faith | Deciphering the Da Vinci Code
Must record more of these shows for E.
I really like this book; Father Joe is an ideal of the listening loving father figure, not ideological or even apparently capable of the little selfishnesses of normal humanity. I’m glad E gave me a copy; I’ll be revisiting Father Joe again.
I’ve got to figure out how to get image files into this blog.
Time: 45 minutes
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 leg-thigh pieces chicken, cut in 2, or 8 thighs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups white wine
1 cup cracked green olives
1 lemon, thinly sliced, seeds removed 1/2 cup broken walnut pieces 1/4 cup coarsely chopped parsley leaves, for garnish
1. Put oil in a deep skillet or casserole, preferably nonstick. Turn heat to medium-high. When oil is hot, add chicken, skin side down, and brown it well, rotating and turning pieces as necessary, about 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
2. With chicken skin side up, add wine and olives. Adjust heat so mixture simmers vigorously, 10 to 15 minutes.
3. When chicken is almost done, place sliced lemon on it, and cook 2 to 3 minutes more. Arrange chicken and lemon on a platter, and stir walnuts into sauce. Taste, and adjust seasoning, then spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley, and serve.
Yield: 4 servings.
Failure Is Not an Option, It’s Mandatory. Thomas Frank asserts the failure of the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment was planned, to appeal to the conservative base, and to show the “control” of society by “liberal elites.” He’s got a plausible point.
