This was a pretty nice meal, once again, it needs vegetables like onions and green peppers or something to make it not so starchy.
My son was a huge help with preparing this dish, which is always fun to cook with the little man.
For the chicken, while searing it, I cooked it with parsley, thyme and oregano.
Instead of quartering the red potatoes, I cut them into eighths. Some probably should have been cut even more.
I never like slow cooker recipes that doesn’t require some liquid into it. So after the first hour, I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the pot. The potatoes had some water in them but I’ll add a full cup of chicken broth, next time. I’ll also add onions and green peppers, just something to add color and some additional flavoring.

We had a big weekend of family events and television watching. We’re all caught up with our current shows. We are on episode seven of Stranger Things 2. My wife has a friend who originally comment that something outstanding happened in episode eight, so we’ve been eagerly anticipating that episode. Though I thought there were two big episodes before that, six being one of them. I’m just happy that Max got on the same page as the rest of them, her and Sean Astin, also getting on the same page, was great. I really hope he makes it through the season, I really like his character, Bob.
Off the recommendation of Comic Book Queers, and wanting a show to end on a lighter note, we started watching Inhumans. We finished the first two episodes and it doesn’t seem campy or silly, yet. I’m glad we’re watching it. My wife finds it funny that Iwan Rheon is cast as another character who is “hassled” by dogs. He is Maximus on this show and was Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones. Karnak choosing the wrong rock to step on, is super puzzling, from the second episode. There is only eight episodes, so we should go through this rather quickly.
Referring to eight episodes, we saw another clip of American Vandal, on Netflix, and I was super interested in watching it. I’m done with Doctor Who Season Nine, and I’ll have to wait until Season Ten is available for the Amazon Prime membership. I should check again on Hulu to see if Doctor Who made it back there. So now I’m looking for another show to watch. My wife saw the first episode with me and she said I could continue without her. She also recommended I watch The 100, she says it is up my alley. It is five seasons, right now on Netflix, so that might be more than I want to do. I’m all about the eight episode season.
I’m currently on episode eight of Comic Book Queers and episode 85 of Living Between Wednesdays. I’m in the middle of episode 48, which is their current episode. Instead of releasing the Patreon episodes, all at once, they are labeling them with the next episode number, which is an interesting way to do it. It makes sense, as it gives them new content to release and it doesn’t drown a guy like me who is eagerly willing to listen to all of them. I see the third episode is out as episode 49, so I’ll have to listen to that.
FPJr referenced in episode 48, that he did Chris Jericho’s podcast, so I had to add that to my playlist. Pretty great interview, and I really miss Chris Jericho. Been a fan of him since his Y2J entrance into WWE. I was so pleased when he become the first Undisputed Champion and was disappointed when HHH took the title from him, and I’m a pretty big HHH fan but I wanted Jericho to have it for a while. He never even got to hold the unified belt.
Still, it is episode 212 of Talk is Jericho, and it is definitely an episode worth listening to. I remember, maybe it was for Batman Forever, of watching (or taping it on the ol’ VCR) and watching all the appearances of the cast. It may not have been that film but it was definitely for a superhero movie. The problem I learned, after the third appearance, was that the celebrity pretty much had the same story to tell, and had the same clip, too. Oh, it must have been the first X-Men film, in 2000, as I recall it was Patrick Stewart. He even did that thing of not knowing which clip was about to be shown, twice on two different shows and it was the same clip too. So I choose to stop watching any additional interviews. That run also made me realized that, when an actor is in New York, they just do all of the New York shows, which I hadn’t really thought about before. One can definitely tell, which actors were sent to which premieres, and when the premiere was, as they were in town for that and to do press.
A long way to get to the point that FPJr likes to tell certain stories, which I enjoy but I may be following him too closely. I imagine these are stories that are tested well, and he tells well, so he’s comfortable with sharing these select stories of his past.
I also saw that Turtle Soup 163 was dropped last week, Eric and Ryan are not the best at putting those notices on their Facebook page. I’m sure it is on the Slack channel, and maybe soon, I can start throwing ten dollars their way.
Whenever Turtle Soup drops, that puts me back as the guys give us two hours of the best entertainment so that puts me back on other shows. Plus, I was pretty busy this week so I didn’t get to listen to as many podcasts as I’m use to. I also had the problem with wanting to put all of these episodes on my phone and kept running out of memory. I can’t wait until February when I can get a phone with at least 16MB, that’s all I care about. 8MB is killing me and has for so long now!

We keep talking about getting a PS4 for Black Friday, Target and Costco are both selling them for around $185, so that’s too good of a deal to pass up. We’re not longer thinking of purchasing a Switch, as we’ll only want it for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Odyssey, so maybe next year. There are like 25 games that I want on the PS4 so that’s taking up some brain space.
TMNT Legends, I’m mostly trying to get into a new mindset of going after DNA cards and getting my team expanded. I almost got Donatello to three stars, I’m only one away. I may go crazy trying to get Michelangelo, after that. I did earn Space Michelangelo and now the tournament is for Space Leonardo so I feel pretty confidant that I can earn him as well. I did so well with Space Michelangelo that I got the two star version of him, whereas I only got the one star version of Space Raphael.
I still miss the old DNA card missions but they did release a new Raphael challenge, last week, so I’m hoping that maybe some ways of getting DNA are coming back. In the Out of Shadows mode, I got movie Michelangelo and Rocksteady so, of course, I keep getting their DNA packs and rarely anyone else’s DNA. So close with so many others but I’m just trying to get DNA and getting my main five’s moves maxed out.
Still not enjoying it like I used to but I’m finding ways to get new enjoyment out of it.
In our rewatch of Season Three, we’re on episode Tale of the Yokai. Since we’re caught up on Riverdale and Doctor Who, I needed a new show and remembered our old show so that’s pretty fun. I recall these episodes so, somehow, we missed out on some of the early episodes of the season. Six more episodes and we’ll be able to start season four, which I’m pretty excited about.
. . .
I completely forgot about The Office! We finished Season Six and well into Season Seven, our next episode is Viewing Party, episode 8.
