Chicken Stew

For a change from the Beef Stew, I decided to go real crazy and try.... Chicken. 

Family size can of Cream of Chicken soup and either a 15 oz or 32 oz container of chicken broth depending if you like it really thick or a little thinner.



1 1/2 lbs of potatoes cut to about 1/2"-3/4" pieces.













1 1/2 lbs of carrots also cut to about 1/2" size pieces.


Not Pictured:  3 Stalks of diced celery and 2/3 cup rice











Spice it up. I like it w/ heavy pepper but also add , Salt, Onion Powder and Soy Sauce to taste.

Stir it together in crock pot at 300 for 3 hrs., stirring every 45 min or so.








After, I added two chicken breasts cut to about 1/2" pieces. I also added some dark meat from a leg and thigh. Stir in thoroughly.

Turn temp up and cook for another 3 hours, stirring about every 45 min.

W/ the last halfhour, I added a can of pre-cooked peas.




The chicken itself was fresh butchered and fairly old so it was a bit chewy. The vege's had just a bit of crunch to them.  I'm thinking of putting the chicken in early next time and adding the celery later.

Hanging It Up (Mostly)

I'm tired.

I've been running DOOT for near 8 yrs now, posting pretty much daily and doing 2A activism for a bit longer than that.  All on my own time and dime. 

I'm tired. 

I'm tired of reading post after post of nasty, hate filled rants by anti-gun fanatics.  I'm tired of watching testimony by anti-gun politicians who either outright lie or are so stupid as to make me shake my head as to the completely ignorant constituents who voted for them. I'm tired of watching the warzone that is Chiraq and being blamed for it because some mentally deficient gang banger wants to shoot up his 'hood to gain some cred.  I'm tired of reading half-educated 'journalists' repeat the same memes and talking points over and over in the papers.

I'm tired and I'm burned out. I still read the updates from my friends but I just can't get the motivation to follow suit anymore. 

So I'm taking a break.  If something really speaks to me I'll post but for the most part any posting will be irregular and primarily game/review related. DOOT will still be here.  Just a bit quieter for the nonce.

Movie Review: Avengers 2: Age of Ultron

 Avengers Age of Ultron.jpg

Went and saw this last night.  Less action packed than the original but lots of excellent character development, especially for the 'secondary' characters of Hawkeye and Black Widow.  CGI was a bit weak in the beginning but improved later in the film.

This almost seemed like a transition film for the rest of the franchise and upcoming Avengers movies.  I will say that I loved the villian. If it weren't for the whole 'wanting to destroy the world' thing, I was rooting for him.  The alleged stink by the SJW's over Black Widow?  Just that.  SJW stink.  She's developed into one of the two most 'human' characters in the film.

Definitely a go see.

4/5

The Narrative

A child was shot multiple times in the Roseland neighborhood of Chicago.  After escaping, he was picked up by emergency personnel and transported to a local hospital.  This carnage will cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars in hospital and court costs along w/ lost current and future wages.

We need to institute full background checks, licensing and registration of firearms along with the restriction of magazine limits and assault weapons.

That's the 'narrative'. That's the spin that anti-gun advocates will put onto most situations.

Here's the reality.
Teens charged in shooting of Oak Park police officer

An armed 17yr old 'child' and his 18yr old friend ambushed an off-duty police officer, eventually deciding to execute him.  The officer pulled his firearm and a shootout ensued, hitting both the officer and the 17yr old who ran away.  He fled the scene and was picked up by police later, his firearm also recovered, where he was transported to the hospital. He is being charged as an adult for felony attempted murder of a police officer.
This is the reality of most 'gun violence' involving 'children'. Gang-banging thugs shooting eachother or actual children in their drive to commit murder and mayhem.

Chicago Weekend Starting Early: Update

Nice weather.  Good Temps. No rain.  The rats come out of their holes:


3 killed, 3 wounded in daytime shootings Friday
  
 A police source said he is a documented gang member and is not cooperating with authorities.
Throw his ass out of the hospital and let him fend for himself.  Remember, when you hear about the 'cost of gun violence', they take the medical costs of people like this then add in some made up number of what he will 'earn' over a lifetime.  Not including all the time he'll likely spend in jail or costing taxpayers elsewise.

Update: Party all night long:

Man, 18, shot in West Rogers Park
