Stella's Chicken

Inspiration to cook can come from many sources. From friends to the Food Network ( eg. Robert, to getting a cookbook for christmas. Today i smelt breaded fish in the hall and bingo bango i'm gonna some cod cakes sometime this week.

The other night i was thinking of something to make. As usual my mind wandered and I thought of my funny niece Stella....which lead to...

Stella's Chicken

- Brown 6 cloves of garlic and 2 big leeks in a large pot over Mid-High Heat

- Dredge 8 Chicken thighs/drum sticks with flour and Brown

- Add 2 bottles of Stella Artois

- Add 1 cup of water

- Add a bunch of turmeric, curry powder, s&p

- Add 3 Tbsp of Mustard (grainy is best)

- Bring to Boil and then reduce to simmer for 15'

- Add 4 large cubed potatoes and couple handfuls of raisins

- Simmer for 20'

- Stir in chopped Swiss Chard or Kale

- Turn off heat and let sit for 5'

Enjoy with 4 friends.

A great week came to a close today with a long tempo run at the lakes with Simon, Kyle and AMc. I've been feeling not so great in the workouts recently. Swimming especially i feel tired. With the new program this year i've become even more acute to importance of recovery.


Olympic fever full on right now. I can't remember the last time i watched something on tv for longer than 1 minute besides it. My favourite thus far has been Jon Montogmery

To me he truly embodies the Canadian Winter Athlete. Grizzly, pale, strong, confident, comedic, and gives er all for the maple leaf. When I toe the line this year, his reaction when he won the gold is exactly what will be running through my head.
