I've never seen a guinea fowl for sale here. Is it common there and is it about the same size as a chicken? I wonder how it would sit on a beer can.

Dinner was a bowl of popcorn! We had a late lunch at Zaxby's after taking the furbabies to the vet. Wasn't hungry. It was a good thing to eat while watching college basketball.

I was wondering about that, too. I thought it might be like a chukar here in these parts and about the size of a partridge, but I did a quick search and it looks like a pheasant. Yum.

Mrs. K is in Costa Rica for work, so I am left home watching the dogs this week. It's not all bad, as I get to eat all of the things that I like and she doesn't. Liver, for instance. I think that will be Wednesday's dinner.

Tonight I had Thai chicken curry with added ghost pepper. It was definitely hot, but not as hot as you might think. The dried variety don't seem quite as toxic, although it still set off a coughing fit when I took the lid off the spice grinder.

Well it seems to be only available in Waitrose (one of the better supermarkets). Yes pretty much same size as a chicken. Beer can? Please explain!

Chicken and Andouille gumbo that Craig made a few nights ago. Andouille was from our last batch using the new meat grinder and stuffer machines.

MC asked the same thing on the beer thread here. Here you go, starting at post #12.
Beer vs non-alcoholic beer.

Ah I see. I had an image of it perched on a beer can!

I don't drink beer but I understand it has a slightly bitter taste? Guinea fowl tends to have a slight tang, i.e. not as 'sweet' as chicken so am not sure if that is a good marriage with beer or not. It is also somewhat tougher than chicken which I don't mind since it has a good flavour.

(I forgot to say that Sainsburys also stock this bird - do you have Sainsburys in US)?

The image is correct Creative. Watch the video on that thread.

No, I've never heard of Sainsbury's here. If anyone would have, or could get a Guinea hen, it would be Whole Foods where you could blow the whole weekly food budget with half the items needed.

Ah I see! I had to scroll further down the page for that video. Have you tried chicken with beer? Here steak with ale is now very common in pies, i.e. hard to buy a meat pie without the damn beer!
