Mom’s refrigerator really was struggling to keep its cool. The condenser fan had quit working. $35 for a new one, 15 minutes to install it and all is good again.
Last night’s dinner turned out well, It was a simple affair; the chicken, brown rice, a tossed salad and beans. It is 45C/110F outside, so simple was “do it all on the BBQ so I don’t heat up the kitchen and make the air conditioner run even more”. I’ve cooked lots of chicken on the BBQ, but I’ve never boiled rice on the BBQ. I wouldn’t do it with a plastic handled pan, but my small dutch oven worked perfectly.
The marinade gives the chicken a nice lime flavor. There is no lime in the marinade, so it’s just a nice tasting illusion.
