Okay, this is going to be different for me! I made a Thai Chicken last night in the crocker. It sounded flavorful, interesting, and different. Using some ingredients I don't typically use. I wanted to sort of clean out the freezer and I had a lot of chicken tenderloins in there, so thought what the heck, I'll try this.
I got the recipe from a Crockpot Cookery. It smelled wonderful. It looked kind of good.
Oh my gosh, why have we not been doing this? It was so fun. We rallied back and forth for a good 30 minutes or so, and it felt GOOD! Really fun, and it felt good to go out there and get my heart pumping. Even though what I really wanted to do was go put my feet up and relax!
After our workout, we came in and I served the chicken dish. Greg liked it. Drew liked it. I hated it. Patooey! First of all, I am not a fan of turmeric apparently. This is a spice that is in the ginger family, and it turns the dish a sort of safron yellow. For me, this would have been very good without that nasty spice, and to make it more Thai, I would have garnished it with fresh mint in addition to the peanuts and green onions. It was really the turmeric. I do not like it. There is not much that I don't care for. Liver. Curry. And Turmeric! Bleh!!! I will say that the coconut milk used to cook this in was very nice and subtle, and the peanuts on top were delicious! I will tweak this to my own tastes next time!
Yesterday morning my neighbor Jane came over and asked me if I could watch Christopher for the day. I said sure, as I had no real plans. Chris and Noah are buds and they play well together. But Christopher sometimes gets bored too. For the most part, they played every single Wii game we had in our possession. Noah is new to playing Wii, and I can see that he is taking to it like a duck to water. Chris doesn't have a video game at his house, so he loves to come and play.
Before I wrap it up for today, I want to say to Sharon, from Fullerton who left me the nice comment on my blog...I tried to reach you. I am assuming that you have a Blogger account but no blog, because I could not get to a blog from your comment. If you don't have a blog, I hope you will consider starting one. And I want to thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. Yes, that Dutch Baby article is very old, and you are close with your guestimation!!
And to all of my new readers and followers....thank you! I try to come say hello to you whenever I see a new follower or comment. But sometimes, I can't seem to get to you. That must mean that you don't have a blog as of yet. But I do appreciate you commenting and reading along. I have been blogging now for about 3 and half years. It has opened up a whole new world for me. I love the friendships I have made. The funny stories. The creativity that is shared here. Blogging has never been anything but a positive experience for me. I know that is not the case for everyone. But you get what you give!! Truly.
It is another stunning day out there in Southern California. And I have things to do. See you soon.
