Chinese Honeymoon

A Chinese couple gets married - and she's a virgin. On the wedding night, she cowers naked under the bed sheets as her husband undresses. He climbs in next to her, and tries to be reassuring: "My darling" he says, "I know this your first time and you very frighten. I promise you, I give you anything you want, I do anything you say. What do you want?"

Thoughtful silence follows and he waits patiently (and eagerly) for her request. "I want ...... number 69" she eventually replies. More thoughtful silence, this time from him. Eventually in a puzzled tone he queries... "You want... Beef with Broccoli"

Did You Know?

Some lions mate over 50 times a day. FIFTY TIMES A DAY. Can you believe it. No wonder they are called the King of the Jungle.

And also:

More than 50% of the people in the world have never made or received a telephone call, a duck's quack doesn't echo and in the course of an average lifetime you will, while sleeping, eat 70 assorted insects and 10 spiders. "ew!"


Lounging at the movies and in restaurants:

Frailty: Bill Paxton, Matthew McConaughey and some other due you will recognize from other movies.

Let me say, here at The B.K. Lounge we love Bill Paxton and Matthew McConaughey. They where both excellent in this movie but we did not like the movie that much. We feel the link between what we where being led to believe and what was actually happening did not surprise us at the end. Personally I got a little tired of "Dad" (Bill Paxton) falling off the deep end with righteousness. Should have spent more time establishing the brothers relationship. Wait for the video.

Scorpion King: The Rock and The guy from Green Mile, the inmate, can't remember his name.

We liked this movie but was expecting Mummy2 times 10. Not so much of the "out of the pan and into the fire" as the Mummy movies although on a lighter side was very cute leaning towards funny.

Blade II: Wesley Snipes and a heap of dead vampires.

If you like action, suspense, grossness, deceit mixed with martial arts, special weapons and mutant vampire slaying, you are in for a treat. For an action horror film it had a surprising story line. See it on the big screen.


Joe's Stone Crab

We where invited to eat at Joe's Stone Crab after an art exhibit in Chicago, IL. We walked in at about 8 o'clock on a Saturday night without reservations. I thought to myself, self, there is no way we are going to eat here tonight. The place was full. The maitre d came back after a short moment and took us to our table. I had Chilean Sea Bass with I believe a mango salsa and it was great. We had also ordered a seafood salad and a steak and everyone was very happy with everything right down to the coffee.

I experienced something at Joe's Stone Crab that I think all decent restaurants should have. When you eat at Joe's you have a waiter for your food and another waiter for your cocktails. This is the most excellent idea. Like a private bar tender. We highly recommend eating at Joe's Stone Crab but you may want to call for a reservation.

Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don't forget your husbands.

The B.K. Lounge Grill: X-tra Special Quesadilla

We made this in The B.K. Lounge Laboratory a couple of weeks ago. This dish was created like all great dishes are created, with the extreme need to eat something yummy. The peppers used in this dish can be found in every Mexican market and while you are there go ahead and buy everything else for this recipe.

2 Chipotle Peppers (dried)
1 Pasilla Pepper (dried)
1 Casabel Pepper (dried)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Smoked Hungarian Paprika.
1/2 tsp. Fresh Ground Cumin
Tiny piece of Cinnamon, about the size of a
iiiiiiiiiiiiii red pepper flake only thicker
1 lb. Boneless Chicken, cut into 1/2 inch wide strips
2 Large Cloves Garlic, minced
6 Small Flour Tortilla's
1/3 Stick Melted Butter
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Cup or more grated Chihuahua
*1 Roasted Red Bell Pepper, cut into 1/2" wide strips
One White Onion, cut into thin slices.
2 Serrono Peppers, de-seeded and cut into thin very strips
Diced Fresh Tomato

I think that's everything.

In a hot dry skillet roast the dried peppers until lightly darker in spots and fragrant. In a coffee grinder grind roasted dried peppers, salt, paprika, cumin and cinnamon. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Add olive oil to skillet and over high heat cook the chicken, stirring occasionally. After chicken has cooked about 3 minutes add the ground roasted pepper mixture and garlic and finish cooking. Set aside.

Brush melted butter on both sides of all 6 tortillas. Place a layer of cheese, layer of chicken, a little more cheese and a layer of onion. Place another tortilla on top and bake for about 10 minutes, until tortilla is light brown. Remove from oven and cut into quarters. On each quarter place 2 strips of roasted red bell pepper, some diced tomato and maybe some more cheese. Eat.

*Roasted red pepper: You can buy various forms of roasted red pepper or you can set your oven to broil and place a red pepper that has been rubbed with olive oil in the roaster (the drawer in the very bottom of the oven where some people store pan lids). Check it and as it turns black roll it over until most of the pepper looks burned. It should smell wonderful. Once Black remove and place in a paper bag until cool enough to handle. Remove pepper and peel off black skin to expose dark roasted pepper flesh. Remove seeds and cut into strips.
