This chicken recipe is one of my hubby's favorites. And, I'm pretty sure it's actual name is NOT peanut butter chicken, but (besides "yummy") that's what we call it at my house.
½ cup creamy peanut butter ½ cup water ¼ cup soy sauce 4 cloves garlic, minced 3 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar ¾ teaspoon ground ginger ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
sliced green onions ~ for garnish
What to do:
1. Stir together: peanut butter, water, soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice, brown sugar, ginger and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 1 minute or until smooth, cool.
2. Reserve at least half of the sauce for dipping (you do not want to use this to brush onto your raw chicken). Then, brush the rest of the sauce onto the chicken.
3. Grill chicken on a medium hot grill for about 8 minutes, turning once. Brush with any additional sauce while grilling.
4. Serve with reserved sauce and sprinkle with green onions.
Mmmm Mmmm Good!
Actually, my husband likes the sauce so much by itself he loves it when I make a little extra that way he can dip his bread or whatever else he can find in it.
I've been leading activities and games for Vacation Bible school at our church. Between 9 and noon I get to hang out with 200 elementary kids. Unfortunately the weather hasn't been cooperating and we've been stuck in the gym. Big bummer, because I like to play water games :)
Anyway, between my crazy, rainy mornings and evenings stuffed full of sports I was very happy when Action's baseball game got cancelled last night due to rain.
Smiley and I took advantage of some reading and snuggle time (with glasses on and my fabulous rained on hair):
Then Sassy joined us! Hard to believe she's smiling because about a half hour before this pic she was shrieking in pain after slamming her finger in the car door. Let's just say, her finger is looking nasty!
And since I mentioned that Action's baseball game got rained out last night, I would also like to mention that Sassy made her fast pitch softball pitching debut in a tournament last weekend. And yep, you guessed it, it was raining! She did pretty well until, the game got called off due to the fact that the home plate seemed to be sitting in a wading pool. What a sloppy mess. (Action was actually dumping water out of his shoes ~ Yuck!)
Enjoy your day and don't forget to step out from behind the camera and enjoy the moments together!
"The sun'll come out tomorrow
bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
there'll be sun....."
Yep, I'm still singing!
The other night I took my girly out on a date.
We met up with a friend and her son, went out for dinner then went to the theatre to see a production of Annie.
It was fabulous.
We had a blast and can't wait until our Mom/Daughter date!
Never forget to embrace the camera and get in the photo!
Too often us moms (dads, grandparents....etc) are the one's behind the camera taking the pictures.
I want my family to know I was there too :)
That's why I embrace the camera!
