food all the time
I'm so glad blogger is letting me post a picture! It's about time. This is from Sunday when the boys were out dove hunting. (They were really just observers.) Also, this picture has nothing to do with this post.
I really want to make some pumpkin bread, but since the mercury is still stuck in the triple digits I am waiting ever so patiently until Saturday when the high is only supposed to be 92. That's practically sweater weather! Juuuussst kidding.
Speaking of food, I made this Honey (Bourbon) Chicken on Monday and I am becoming slightly obsessed with when I will make it again. I want it right now, but I'm making stew tonight and I don't have enough honey or any chicken, so I can't make it now anyhow. What would I do different with this recipe? Make more. You could probably use close to 2 pounds of chicken (I used 1.5) since I ended up with lots of sauce (I poured it over some green beans at lunch the next day). I didn't sprinkle any sesame seeds on it and I didn't add any red pepper flakes since the kids were eating. When I first read the recipe I almost discarded it because it called for a whole cup of honey! Have you bought honey lately? It's not cheap. Anyhow I almost didn't use a whole cup, but I tasted the glaze before I added it to the crock pot and ended up making it a cup. So, just follow the recipe. (I used 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken the sauce.) And... no, there's no bourbon in the recipe, but I read through a lot of comments from that post and someone said it originated on Bourbon Street in Louisiana. I'm sure if you really wanted to make it with bourbon you could have a few sips while you were waiting for it to cook in the crock pot. I'm giving this recipe a million stars.
That's all for now. I need to find a snack so I can replenish my energy and finish making supper. Basically, I just said I have to eat so I can make something to eat. Stop judging, I'm pregnant- best excuse ever!
