Are we lucky or not? Look at these temps! I'm all ready...I have 8 loads of laundry all pegged on the back porch.
This Saturday I got a book in the mail that I had ordered on amazon.com for 47 cents (plus $3.99 shipping!). This is a small book, about 6x6 inch square. There are 6 recipes I want to try. The first recipe I saw that really caught my eye is Indonesian Beggar's Chicken. And since I had all the ingredients already on hand...
...I made it! (Chicken looks funny because it's breast side down.) Was it ever yummy! Cilantro, lime, tamarind, onion, soy sauce, and garlic. You may see the recipe here if you click on "features" at the bottom of the page.
I have learned that they are many different versions of Beggar's Chicken. The next Beggar's Chicken recipe I will try will be from my Romertopf cookbook. This recipe is completely different from the first recipe. Cooking is so much fun!
I copied this picture from Sarah's blog. This is Abigail standing at her window clapping her hands...Grandaddy is coming to visit! My Dad visits Abigail almost everyday...something both Sarah and Abigail look forward to. Well, tonight Mike is up at Dulles Airport picking up Sarah from her visit to Alabama. So Anna babysat today...and loved it. Of course, Grandaddy came by for the afternoon.
Today I picked up Maggie from her appt in town, then drove to my parents' home where my youngest three were getting piano lessons. Well, I only came home with one child...everyone else stayed for ham dinner at Grandad's!
Later on when Grandad brought "the kiddies" home, he stayed for an hour to warm up in front of our fireplace. We retired military families really enjoy being close to grandparents!
