Video(s) of The Week - Superbowl Commercials

Here are my favorite commercials from this years Superbowl.

Doritos-Man's Best Friend. The whole commercial is funny!

M&M's - Sexy and I know it. So funny!

Acura NSX: Transaction. I loved the part where Jay Leno shows up.

The Voice - Vocal Kombat. The fighting is kind of cheesy, but the ending is awesome!

H&M - David Beckham Body Wear. Do I really need to say why this video made my list.

Randy's (@areyousuprised) Inspired Chicken and Rice

Today's recipe comes from YouTube, specifically @areyousuprised. If you don't know who Randy is, you need to check out his YouTube Channel.

Ok, before I go on with the recipe, you need to watch his video where he makes his EXTREME PROTEIN dish, the inspiration for my dish.

Isn't he just sooo cute!

Now Randy's dish and mine are a bit different because Randy is packing protein, working out, in shape, hot, good looking, delicious....but I digress....and I am not, so mine might not be as healthy.


Chicken stock or bullion cube
Black Beans
Salsa (any brand, any level of heat)
Diced Tomatoes (not pictured)

I'm not adding any amounts because it's really up to how much you want to make. I used this whole package of chicken and at the end I would have liked more corn and beans, so I will use 2 cans of each the next time.

First make your rice. I did two cups of brown rice with four cups of water and a chicken bullion cube. Cook until done. While the rice is cooking, start on the chicken. Dice the chicken into bite size strips and season with your favorite seasoning.

To a hot pan, add some oil and the chicken. Cook chicken until it's almost done and then add chopped onion.

Cook until the onion is translucent and then add your corn and beans. Because I used can beans, I did rinse them with water before adding to the pan.

Then add your chopped tomato, fresh or canned, and salsa. Again, add a lot or a little bit of salsa, according to how spicy you like it. I like mine spicy so I added about half the bottle of salsa. Set the heat on low, cover, and let it simmer for a few minutes while the chicken soaks up all the deliciousness.

When done, get a plate and scoop some brown rice in the center. Then get a heaping scoop of chicken and salsa and place on top of your rice. Top with some chopped cilantro and enjoy!

Video of the week!

I was in Wal-Mart, the only place in Del Rio that has books for sale, looking for a new book to read. As I was browsing the very small selection of books, I came across one called The Hunger Games. As I read the title, I remembered someone who I follow on twitter, I'm pretty sure it was @tyleroakley, had mentioned the book. I picked it up and read the back cover. Seemed interesting, so I bought it.  After I bought it and read some chapters, I decided to do a twitter search to see if anyone else was talking about it. Turns out there are a lot. That when I found out about the other 2 books in the series and the upcoming movie. As soon as I was finished reading the first book, I read the second, and then the third. I really liked the series and the trailers for the movie look good. The second trailer was just released yesterday and the movie is set to come out in theaters March 23, 2012.
