Off-Ice Activities and Other Such Things

I have no idea if it's because I've never met him or if I never really followed him through everything like the Avs fans have or what, but all summer as I've gotten various items to post here, one thing I never got (aside from the off-ice photos) are any inclinations of what Adam is involved in off the ice (any charity work, any things he does in his spare time, etc.). Either way, Rosalyn (thank you!) was nice enough to type up two special recipes from the Kings' Wives' cookbook from the Deadmarsh family's section so that I could share them with you. :)

If anyone out there knows of any charity or other such off-ice activities that Adam's involved in, I'd like to include it in this section. You will be credited for your help.

Adam's Annual Golf Tournament details for 2003 (thanks Jules, who went to Canada at the same time as the Tourney and found out the following):

Jules says: "We were just in Canada and happened to get into town the day before Adam's annual golf tournament. I have some info about it for your site. It was held on Sunday, August 24th, and again this year it was a fund-raiser to benefit the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital and Health Foundation. Since it was later in the summer than usual, they really didn't have any big names playing since most of the guys were getting ready to report to training camp. Even Adam went home the day after the tournament. Anyway, Adam's brother Jake played, and Mary Jane Jackman (Mom of St. Louis Blues Barrett Jackman) played as well. They said that preliminary figures showed this year's tourney brought in double the $21,000 they raised last year."

Okay...quick question on this first recipe...does anyone (anyone at all??) know the amount of raisins that are needed for this, or are they optional, or.....? The recipe never says, and it was printed this way in the book (thanks, Rosalyn!).

Adam Deadmarsh's Mother-In-Law's Bran Muffins


2 cups of Boiling Water
2 1/2 cups White Sugar
1 cup of Melted Margarine
4 Eggs, beaten
1 quart Buttermilk
4 cups Flour
3 tbsp. Baking Soda
1 tbsp. Salt
4 cups Bran Flakes
2 cups 100% Bran


Pour boiling water over bran flakes and let it stand. Soak raisins in
hot water and drain. Mix sugar and margarine, add eggs and beat
gently. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Then,
add water, soaked bran, buttermilk, the sugar and margarine mixture, and
raisins. Stir to mix and moisten, but do not overmix. Mixture may be
stored in refrigerator for five weeks, or cook up all the muffins and
freeze. Thaw as needed. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20

The Deadmarshes' Stanley Cup Oven Chicken Creole


1/4 cup Butter in 9" x 13" pan
10 Chicken Thighs or 4 or 5 Chicken Breasts


1/3 cup Flour
1/4 tsp. Poultry Seasoning
1 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. Paprika


Shake and bake chicken in coating (if not enough, double). Bake
uncovered 20 to 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

In a large bowl mix the following:

1 cup Uncooked Rice
1/2 cup Chopped Onion
1/2 cup Green Pepper
1 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Pepper
3 cups Hot Chicken Broth
1 - 28 oz. Diced Canned Tomatoes

Stir above mixture together and pour in 9" x 13" pan (the one used for the chicken), and lay chicken pieces on top of rice mixture. Bake uncovered for an hour at 400 degrees. If casserole appears dry, add some water on top. To reheat, add a little water to moisten. Freezes well.
