If only I could record what’s currently happening in my living room without getting caught. I feel like this is becoming a normal happening in my household and I’m not quite sure if I’m ok with it or not…my Dad and my dog are barking at each other. I really hope for my Dad’s sanity and my dogs ego that they can absolutely understand what they’re barking about cause quite frankly I’m out of the loop…and that’s quite ok with me.
They have quite the special relationship.
In other news, this weekend was totally chill. And by chill I meant I probably almost froze to death approx. 72 times. Maybe I’m overreacting, but it’s seriously way too cold outside. I’m incredibly thankful for a fireplace and my Snuggie. Being outside, even drunk is unbearable! Someone fly to an island in the Caribbean with me?
Yesterday evening I was seriously craving childhood favorites. Maybe it was the weather, maybe I needed comfort (and warmth) or maybe I just really wanted to cook. Either way, I made an amazing re-creation of one of the dishes my Dad used to serve when I was younger.
Wannabe Dad’s Lemon Chicken
Chicken breast (I just used a 5oz cut)
Juice of 2 fresh Meyer lemons (or any lemon you have on hand!)
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1-2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp brown sugar
Dash of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
Dash of salt
What to do:
Cook your chicken as instructed (I baked mine @ 350 til it wasn’t pink…obviously)
Combine all ingredients in a small pot and whisk together, heat up over the stove or in the microwave like a lazy girl (me!) til the sauce thickens up.
Pour over chicken + veggies if you cooked any and devour. Enjoy! Couldn’t be easier, right?
For dessert I was also craving a childhood lunchbox favorite…
Oh, I went there and OH it was delicious. I wouldn’t mind being five again.
I can’t believe it’s already Sunday, really? Do I say this every weekend? Most likely. I got in a killer upper body workout today and I know I’ll be feeling it tomorrow, but something about being sore makes me feel good…does that make any sense? I’m off to get dinner with my brother and sister-in-law (and Mia!) Enjoy your evening and STAY TOASTY!
