Attitude adjustment, delight and silence

- An invitation to a weekend "Attitude Adjustment Outing" made me smile, which was part of the invitation: "bring some pot-luck and a smiling face." Here’s what’s on the menu so far:

· Low Country Shrimp Boil
· Beer-butt Chicken
· Okra, Tomatoes & Rice

- Watching the delightful film “Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day," an uncomplicated light comedy. You have to love a film with a character named Dylesia.

- Making time for silence each day.

That is such a funny thing they are calling it - beer butt chicken. It is better known at Beer Can Chicken - here's a link from the Food Network:,1977,FOOD_9936_19397,00.html

I love this part: "Open beer can and take several gulps (make them big gulps so that the can is half full). Place beer can on a solid surface. Grabbing a chicken leg in each hand, plunk the bird cavity over the beer can. Transfer the bird-on-a-can to your grill and place in the center of the grate, balancing the bird on its 2 legs and the can like a tripod."
