Winna winna, chicken dinna! Yep, that was me last weekend. Mr. H turned out a delicious meal. It was a little heavy on the starch – the veggies spoke for themselves and don’t really need the rice company. Aside from that, copy and paste this meal and I’m all over it again. A simple white wine rosemary pan chicken with roasted potatoes and veggies pan cooked with the chicken. I’m a fledgling vegetarian, though chicken cooked this delicious keeps me from fully going veggie.
I made meringues last weekend. They’re not my prettiest specimens, but they tasted yummy. The yellow/orange ones are lemon meringues and the others are almond chocolate meringues. Viewed close up the sugar in them reflected light and made them shimmer.
In other food news, I made snickerdoodle cookies at 11pm Wednesday night as my night class on Thursday after work requested some sort of heritage dish. My people are mutts, through and through, so bringing a “heritage” dish to a school thing is always a challenge for me, particularly when my classmates are almost all first or second generation immigrants that have great food recipes passed down from their parents’ or their home country. I made the joke the previous week that I should bring alcohol as a lot of my ancestors had been alcoholics, so it was part of my heritage. No one seemed to see the humor in it, sigh. I still think it’s funny! Though I settled on snickerdoodles, which my Mom made a lot when I was a kid.
