It has been awhile since I have posted about food. Don’t worry, I am still cooking and trying new things. But I have been switching phones for the past couple of weeks, so my pics seem to always be somewhere else.
I have been doing a pretty good job of working with a meal plan lately. I think the holidays through some kinks, but we are past that. I really like having the meal plan. It has allowed me to try a lot of new recipes. I made an awesome calzone two weeks ago, but that one didn’t last long enough to take a pic.
Anyways, like the rest of the world, I am addicted to Pinterest. Pinterest is how I found the SkinnyTaste Blog. She has a ton of great looking recipes. One of which, I thought I would share with you.
Click on her blog to see the actual recipe. Now I have wanted to experiment with the Five Chinese Spice, so I had that on hand. As for the garlic cloves, agave, and shallots, I did not have on hand. And yesterdays, was one of the days that I was not going to brave the grocery store to get these ingredients. So I improvised. I made the marinade with the Chinese five spice, soy sauce, black pepper, sugar, garlic powder, and ginger. I let the chicken marinate overnight, and roasted it. It was delish. I served it with some sticky rice, and some roasted zucchini.
|I am aware that this chicken leg is HUGE!|
I have been working on my vest, and it is coming along nicely. I put it down for a minute or week, because I was feeling a bit discouraged. Now the rows are so long, the take forever, and I am not seeing any really quick progress like before. But I sewed up the seams on Sunday, and tried it on, and it is looking good. So I am determined to finish it during the month of February.
|I know it is not a great pic, but you can see I am working on it!|
Justin and I watched a movie last night, and I knitted the entire time, and only got 5 rows done. This is going to be a long month...
