Eat Chit & Dice – Episode 29 – Board Games: The Final Frontier

Everyone wants to go to space, but very few people think about the implications that zero gravity would have on playing board games. Board games are not a popular hobby in any space related medium that I am familiar with, so why so many space games?

Trying something new here, let me know what you think about it and how bad it looks on your podcast program of choice:

Recipe Notes
  1. Mix the chicken with the lime juice, chili powder and garlic.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan then fry the chicken for a couple of mins – it will cook very quickly so keep an eye on it. Meanwhile, warm the wraps following the pack instructions or, if you have a gas stove, heat them over the flame to slightly char them. Do not let them dry out or they are difficult to roll.
  3. Squash half an avocado onto each wrap, add the peppers to the pan to warm them through then pile onto the wraps with the chicken, and sprinkle over the coriander. Roll up, cut in half and eat with your fingers.
