Yessss, another long drawn out lag in my posts! Oopsies! I hope you haven’t missed me too terribly! I’ve been sucked into the doctor visits, nursery preparations and just general meh-ness of the past few weeks and haven’t been too inspired to write anything much. Most I’ve done has been cook up some new recipes that I found on Pinterest, like this one for carmelized chicken…OH MY WORD it was seriously the most delicious chicken I’ve ever made! Here’s a pic:
BEST CHICKEN EVER!!
Here’s the proper recipe:
2 1/2 lbs chicken legs
1 2/3 tablespoons olive oil (to help it stop sticking to the pan)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 2/3 tablespoons ketchup
3/4 cup honey
2 -3 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350F2. Place chicken in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Mix together the oil, soy sauce, ketchup, honey, garlic, salt and pepper.
Do it like I did, follow the directions and then make yet another batch of the sauce, and baste the chicken halfway through the cooking process so you’ve got an extra dose of that ridiculously yummy sauce over everything. Because, I can’t do anything the normal way, I’ve always got to push the envelope! LOL
I also made a great version of Salisbury Steak using a couple of recipes that I found online, I kind of made a mish mosh of the two recipes and went for it! It was so good, I forgot to take a picture! I pretty much followed this recipe but omitted the ground turkey and went for all 85% lean ground beef.
I don’t know how I’m going to keep all the good meals coming with a newborn in the house, my cooking is going to have to take a backseat for a while I think. Hopefully I will be able to resume cooking new and interesting stuff in the near future afterwards. I’m scheduled for a C-Section on Oct 23rd due to the little one being firmly in the breech position so we’ll see what happens! Think I’m nervous now??? I can’t imagine how rattled I’m going to be the day of!! YIKES!!
Wish me luck!
