Feed The Resistance: National Rum Day!

This past Wednesday was National RUM Day…so we kept the party going for a couple of extra days, and did some cooking with Rum!  When I think of Rum, I think Caribbean foods, and in particular, a wonderful recipe that I found in a cookbook called “The Dookie Chase Cookbook” by Leah Chase, a famous chef from New Orleans.  The recipe is for Baked Chicken in Caribbean Sauce.  It’s got a bit of a kick to it, so as a side, I made Plantaino Mash – basically a mashed potato, made with sweet potatoes and plantains – that did a nice job of mellowing out the spice of the Caribbean sauce.

To pair with the chicken, Dee brought in Eliot Ness Amber Lager from Great Lakes Brewing Company, which also helped to mellow out the sauce a bit.
