Ian's "first" trip outside. He's usually under a blanket!
It was actually fairly nice. We look cold but his carrier was up in this picture.
It was really fun to listen to him giggle about Harley (the dog to the right) running around.
He was getting kind of hysterical!! It was really sweet!
Ok...so this is Week 11 of my recipes. I forgot that last week I made one of my favorites (a cross between Salisbury steak and strogonoff) with a few variations. I will try to put that up later this week...so yummy! Anyway, tonight I made Lime Herb Chicken. It was fairly easy and really tasty! Plus, we made it on the grill so that got us all out of the house. Fresh air does the body good!!
Lime Herb Chicken
1 cup lime juice
2/3 cup Italian salad dressing
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-4 pounds), cut up
This was the whole chicken. I have never actually cut up a whole chicken to cook, just to make into soup or eat off, so it really didn't matter what it looked like. So I tried my best and I thought the pieces turned out well. I was grossed out though when I got to the guts! I think I would buy the stuff that's already cut into pieces next time.
How did I do?? The thighs are a little small but overall it went good.
My beautiful lime/lemon juicer...that I bought for $2. I was really excited about my bargain...until I finally used it tonight. Two halves of lime into making dinner and the handle cracked right off!! So I had to juice all my limes with a fork...sad! I guess sometimes a bargain isn't really all that great of a deal :o(
