Leftovers! Yay!

Two people are not going to finish a 3 1/2 lb. chicken in one sitting, at least not these two people. So two days after a barbecued chicken dinner, He-Cicerone made chicken salad with mainly breast meat, red bell pepper, green onion, a clove of roasted garlic, and some mayo. She-Cicerone sauteed some bok choy, green onions, and a bit of celery in oil, soy, and rooster sauce for a little side dish. We figured the chicken salad with some spinach on a pita would make a fine repast. While preparing the salad, we sampled a nice homebrewed southern English style brown ale sent to us by our new friend Brandon. It was a nice light bodied ale with a range of treacly, toffee, and black malt flavors, and I was a bit surprised to find that it went really well with the tidbits I was nibbling on while I worked. That beer was quickly gone, but I knew we'd have to have some schwarzbier, which has many similar flavors, and which is currently on tap. The original plan was to have some dunkel, so we had that, too. Mmm, mm.

Still two drumsticks and a wing left for someone's lunch, too....
