1) Knowing that RobertaX is not as keen on teh spicy as am I, I marinated two of the chops in liquid Jerk JuJu all afternoon before cooking. Next time, I'm going after those things with a fork like Jack the Ripper before I marinate them so that they soak up more JuJu.
2) Ah. So that's why my roomie has all those bitty glass bowls. Halfway through the prep process, I thought "Maybe if I kept my ingredients in all these little pudding bowls she has..." As Willie said to Joe, "I'll be damned, did you know this can opener fits on the end of a rifle?"
