And this is what happens when you have a husband at home all day with access to the internet...

Do you know what this is?



Yeah, I didn't either.  After looking at this thing sitting on my kitchen counter for a week or so, I finally asked Hubby.

Apparently, it's a brick.  Wrapped in aluminum foil.



Why is there a brick, wrapped in aluminum foil, sitting on my counter, you ask?

Yeah, I wondered about that one too.  But after being married to this man for so many years I was almost hesitant to ask.  Because, really?  Did I want to know?

Eventually I had to ask.  The curiosity was killing me - why in the hell is there a BRICK wrapped in aluminum foil sitting on my kitchen counter?!

Apparently it has something to do with cooking a chicken.

And THAT is reason 5,688 that I don't cook.  It's far too complicated.

  1. Isn't there a brick-pressed chicken recipe out there somewhere? Seriously!

    Tell him to watch the landscaping channel -- and come to my house.

  3. I just did a quick google search and apparently you can use a brick when cooking a chicken. I would have never guessed.

  5. Oh - I thot it was to keep the bacon flat while frying ... :) So does he PUT it in the chicken - that must be one BIG chicken or one small brick. LOL!

  8. I think it's time you started...chicken a la brick courtesy of the husband is reason enough...

  9. I agree with you that cooking is way to complicated....throwing a chicken and a brick into the mix just boggles me.

  10. I would have asked the minute I came in and saw that on my counter!! I figured it had to do with cooking since he's the one that does it.....like mine.

  11. Geez, now I'm going to be forced to look it up! Bet my son that cooks, would know! I nearly croaked the first time I heard him talking about "beer butt chicken".

  13. Hmmmm, I know what a chicken brick is but it's not like THAT. A chicken brick is a terracotta pot with a lid that is a round shape and the chicken goes inside it. Real bricks wrapped in foil do not come into it.... No idea what the hell he would do with a real brick wrapped in foil....
