I didn't want to be nostalgic about my kids any more this week. It was making me weepy. Then I had to eat chocolate. What I really need is to drag another couple pounds along with me on my next race.
Steamy and yummy. And yet another vegetable, although disguised by bacon grease. So delicious, I can't believe I haven't ever made these before.
3. Roasted chicken quarters. I roast chicken often, but not this way. I also got this recipe from The Pioneer Woman.
These were supposed to be spicy, but they weren't. They were also supposed to be just chicken legs, but quarters were on sale for .89/lb, so do you blame me? I knew you wouldn't.
4. Oatmeal brownies. I got this recipe from a cute cook book my mother brought over to help me "stage" the house for showing. It's a good thing I made it when I did. I got home yesterday and the book was gone. I was robbed! (In it's place was a package of onesies, so I suspect Mom.) (Thanks, Mom.)
I told the kids whoever wanted an oatmeal brownie had to go for a walk with me after dinner. Ty said, "I really want a brownie, but I don't want to be seen walking with ALL y'all. So, we DROVE to the nature trail for our covert family walk. About ten minutes into the walk Tanner exclaimed, "I could have just stayed home while y'all were walking and eaten the whole pan of brownies." Smart kid, but not smart enough to think of it while we were still at home!
5. This weekend I am going to try Mongolian Beef from Hon, What's for Dinner? Do you think that is a good theme type dinner to go with the finale of LOST?
Since all FIVE of these things made me thankful and happy, I am linking up to MannLand5's Thursday Five. Join her and tell her what you are happy about.
