beer mushroom chicken with potatos

another thing i made up, and it was good.

you will need:
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup dried mushrooms
  • 1/2 package of mushrooms
  • 4 large potatos
  • sam adams seasonal beer, 2 bottles
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  1. slice the potatos into round thin slices, and boil them in some water until soft-ish
  2. put the dried mushrooms into a food processor and chop into small peices
  3. meat hammer the chicken breasts to flatten and dredge the chicken breasts in the mushroom powder
  4. slice the non-dried mushrooms
  5. put some olive oil into a pan with the chopped up garlic and cook until garlic gives off some flavor
  6. dice the onions and add that to the pan, cook until translucent
  7. add the mushrooms and let cook for about 3 mins
  8. turn the heat to high and add the chicken letting it brown on the outside
  9. add the potatos which are now softish to the pan and cook with the chicken and the mushrooms, turn the heat down to low, cover the pan while the stuff cooks.
  10. when the stuff starts looking pretty cooked, add the beer, but not all of it right away, do it in stages. When the beer evaporates your stuff should be cooked
  11. drink the 2nd bottle of beer while you cook.
make sure the chicken is cooked through. serve with more beer. yum.

find table contstraint in oracle database

free toad does not provide a constraint view.

select * from user_constraints where constraint_name = 'THE_CONSTRAINT_NAME';

TABLE_NAME is the name of the table that has the constraint, and probably is the table you need to delete stuff from to clear the constraint

cheese stuffed chicken

I made some food last night that was good, using a recipe which i mostly made up. I need to write this down.

feeds 4:
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 of a brick of frozen spinach 
  • 1 medium onion
  • some phylo dough
  • mozz cheese, atleast 3 cups
  • some melted butter
  • salt and pepper
Hammer the shit out of the chicken breasts so that they are flat. put some salt and pepper on them. Dice the onion and cook with olive oil on a pan, add the spinach. Cook until onion is cooked.
On each chicken breast, put 1/2 of the onion and spinach, and a ton of cheese, and roll the chicken up into tubes filled with cheese, onion and spinach. Get out the phylo dough, place 2 sheets on top of eachother and brush with melted butted until soaked. wrap each chicken roll in 2 peices of phylo dough.  place on baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 mins on 450.
