Why We Had Taco Smell For Dinner Tonight

Sometimes, dinner just doesn't turn out the way you planned it. We are proud owners of a Ronco Set-It-and-Forget-It Rotisserie. It's basically an Easy Bake oven that uses an electrical element instead of a lightbulb. This technological marvel arrived with a large sticker that warned: "Set it, but don't really forget it!" Yeah, what you're thinking right now? That's what I was thinking, too.

Anyhow, this Ronco Rotisserie has seen us through thick and thin. The plan for the evening was to roast a chicken in the Ronco, shred it, and then put it in tacos. The leftovers would go toward sammiches for Mr. Nonny Nu. the next day. Problem is, the dang chicken failed to defrost fully even though it sat from 9am to 6pm on the kitchen counter. So, instead of getting the bird into the Ronco as planned, I had to tack on another 30 minutes, which put the finishing time way too late. We'd have had dinner around 10:30 if we went with the original plan (wait for chicken to cool, shread, into tacos).

Instead, we had Taco Smell. Thing is, Smell experienced a green onion e. coli scare a few months ago in their New England branches. Naturally, corporate pulled all green onions nationwide. But, Nachos Bell Grande and Mexican Pizza aren't the same without green onions. So, what we've been doing is chopping our own green onions, which are then added to the dishes from Smell once we get the order home. Smell fans should try it--it really works! Just like the good old days!

Now, there is a bowl of shredded chicken in the fridge awaiting consumption by Mr. Nonny Nu in sammiches. Sushi was the only one who sampled the golden roasted chicken this evening. I offered her a piece, and she loved it and begged for more.

P.S. The photo links have been fixed to redact all porn images. They should now be accessible to those employed by evil employers.

Man From U.N.C.L.E. Says - So the Ronco products really work? I bought my dad a Ronco "Pocket Fisherman" about twenty years ago (when I was but a babe) and the flipping thing never made it past the initial cast. The reel mechanism jammed, causing the fishing line to become embedded inside the non-collapsible hard bodied shell, and only released 23 inches of fish catching magic. Needless to say, plenty of fish were saved by this environmentally conscientious, probably PETA developed, device. Glad to here Ronco is more successful in the kitchen than in the wild.

say what thou wilt regarding pocket fishing. but no girl can physiologically resist "hey, good-lookin', i'll be back to pick you up later!" rock on mr. microphone!

I agree delta dawn. Dudes got a lot more play with Mr. Microphone than a rinky-dink fishing pole. My childhood Mr. Microphone usage turned into a lifelong addiction to karaoke. Mr. Microphone is not harmless fun. It's definitely a gateway to the harder stuff.

delta dawn, I don't know who you are, so I can't provide a description of you on Nonny's Hall of Fame. Hint, please?

delta dawn said...

is helen reddy? is marvin gaye? many questions remain unanswered. guess you'll just have to guess.

btw, i'm tired of taco hell.

I can't believe it. I couldn't even recognize my own husband.

Bringing your own green onions?! The only thing better is bringing your own Bailey's to Starbucks.

Nonny Nu said...

Kernal Panic, check out your entry on Nonny's Hall of Fame. Did I guess correctly?

And, there's nothing wrong with bringing your own Bailey's to Starbucks. What do you think the second B refers to on the gigantic "BYOB" sign in the front of every Starbucks?

Aw, Sushi is such a cutie! I've seen those "Set it and forget it" informercials but never thought to buy one myself. So, they actually work, huh?

Nonny Nu said...

ogunsgirl and Man From U.N.C.L.E.,

Yes, the Ronco Rotisserie really works! I don't know about their other products, but the rotisserie is probably the most used kitchen appliance at my house (even more than the toaster). Well, I take that back. I, er, we use the dishwasher more often.

Did you use the samachine I bought for your? Taco Bell is not bad, I like it too. Did both of you finish that bowl of green onion? shit,do get close to me. Are you sure Sushi is a real cat, why its eye are yellow instead of green?

About your co-worker's green house at work, you should suggest him to grow some happy plants so when you guys have to stay late working, it will come in handy....... ....

Ca loc said...

I think you should send the Ronco Rotisary to its manufacture and they will give you a newer model for free. living proof.......
