Playground Talk, Now Let's Eat

One can hear the darndest things out on the playground.  Sometimes you don't even have to stretch an ear to hear, the kids come right up to tell you.  Today was no exception. 

Girl: Mrs. Avery my mom won't let me wear my Guiness shoes anymore.

Me: Really? Why?

Girl: 'Cause it's to cold out now.

Friend: What are Guiness shoes?

Girl: My beer flip flops.

Me: I don't really think you should be wearing beer shoes to the fourth grade anyway.

Girl: I thought they said "genius" when I bought them...I can't read.

That is when I thought but your mom can.

As long as we are talking beer here is a recipe I tried out tonight.  I got it from a high school classmate of mine. Everyone but one in the family liked it.  You know what  I say to that one...make yourself a dam PBJ then.  

Pork Chili

4 lbs picnic/shoulder roast
1 onion, coarsely chopped
1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
3 (15 ounce) cans black beans not drained
(16 ounce) jar salsa
2 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 can rotel with diced chilies
Juice of one lime
Chopped garlic, cilantro, crushed red pepper flakes and 2 beers *Budweiser's (use what you are comfortable with)
Frozen corn 2 cups? Whatever you want….

Dump it all in crock pot (except for corn and cilantro) cook 7 hours on low. Pull pork out, shred add it back add corn and cilantro cook 2 more hours. Serve over cilantro lime rice.

Rice is 2 cups long grain rice to 4 cups water. When rice is cooked add juice of one lime and a half cup of chopped cilantro. Mix.

Here's my finished product (crappy picture taken with my phone)
Question is...does mine look like Sally's?

Hells no!!! I think you might have accidentally cooked up some pork anuses :) :) :) No wonder the "one" ended up eating a damn PB&J sandwich! hehe!

Nellie- :-P No pork rectum here girlfriend, and you know how I know this? 'Cause the vice-principal who regularly eats at my lunch ate some and said "yum that's really good and took a second bite. If it was rectum (which apparently can only be found in Austin) he would have said something on the lines of tastes like shit.

Next food photograph of my creations I will hire a food stylist. hehehe

-Nellie and Jonathan said...

You sure you didn't feed the VP the anuses?? Maybe you were tired of him eating your lunches, and fixed that problem up good! Just sayin!

Oh, and I'm sure anuses don't taste like shit...probably taste more like chicken ;) LOL!

JODI said...

Nellie- Stop making me laugh! My pork chili doesn't look like Sally's b/c I used a leaner pork loin to her fatty pork shoulder. Every now and then I pretend to be health conscience.

Anyway, I say pork butthole tastes like shit not chicken...cause not everything tastes like chicken

Lin said...

Can I just ask how you would go about cleaning a pork anus? Do you have to use toilet paper?

JODI said...

Lin- That is a question only Nellie can answer-- apparently she has lots of pork anus experience.

-Nellie and Jonathan said...

Just came back and read the rest of this! LMAO!!!!!! Jodi, you never fail to make me snort laughing :) :) Pork anus experience, indeed!
