Suaasat – Greenlander Soup

Greenlander Soup

SUAASAT

INGREDIENTSSuaasat-

1 chicken breast (1 pound reindeer if you can get it)
1 onion
1 carrot
1 quart water
1/2 cup pearl barley
1/4 cup millet
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon thyme

Makes 6 bowls

PREPARATION

Chop reindeer meat or chicken into 1/2″ cubes. Dice onions and carrots. Add cubes, onions, carrots, water, barley, millet, coriander, salt, pepper, rosemary, sage, and thyme to large pot. Cook soup on medium heat for about 1 hour or until chicken or reindeer cubes are fully cooked and barley and millet are tender.

TIDBITS

1) A Viking called Gunnbjorn discovered Greenland in 876.

2) Why does Gunnbjorn get all the credit for discovery when thousands of Eskimos had been living there for hundreds of years?

3) Because Gunnbjorn sounds a lot like GummiTM bears and everyone likes those.

4) Leif Erikkson discovered North America in 1000.

5) Why did Leif get all the credit when North America was discovered thousands of years by peoples crossing the land bridge between Siberia and Alaska thousands of years before?

6) Because Leif sounds exactly like leaf. The maple leaf grows on the maple tree. Maple trees produce maple syrup. Everybody loves maple syrup.

7) Proper branding is a must for all discoverers.

8) Erikkson is variant of Erickson. Erickson is the name of my Swedish born grandparents who settled in America about 100 years ago.

9) I don’t believe the Erikksons and Ericksons ever relinquished their claim of discovery.

10) So North America quite possibly belongs to me.

11) As long as North Americans love maple syrup.

Bacon & Chocolate Party’s Plan For The Zombie Apocalypse

  • Plan A: Throw gummi brains at the zombies. (We have a huge stockpile. Our vast army of flying squirrels will distribute the gummi brains at the first signs of a zombie outbreak.
    Plan B:  Encourage the zombies to go to countries or regions where people eat brains.
    (One of our flying squirrels.)
       
  • No one has ever said zombies have to eat human brains. Sure, zombies prefer human brains. I mean, it takes the same time to break open a skull and scoop out the insides no matter how big the animal or person. So, it would take a lot of time to eat a lot of rat brains for example. But there are lots of countries and regions where brains of many, many animals are sold at street restaurants. Just watch Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations'” on the Travel Channel. And what zombie could resist spiced, freshly kebabed brains? I know this is a bit gruesome, but fighting zombies isn’t for squeamish. Rest assured, the Bacon & Chocolate Party, and only the Bacon & Chocolate Party, has your back on this one.
