JUNE 7, 2012–HONEY-PLUM-SOY CHICKEN
Today is just an ordinary day. Sure there is swim practice at 5:00, but there is swim practice every weeknight.
Sure I cook HONEY-PLUM-SOY CHICKEN (pg. 197), but I cook every day of the week, every month of the year, and for 13 years. (college doesn’t count)
Just an ordinary summer day. Some might even call it boring, but as Secret Agent Josephine recently wrote in her blog, “eventful days make for great posts, but really uneventful days make for a great summer.” (paraphrased) And that is true. Today is a totally uneventful day and a total welcome.
Let’s make some HONEY-PLUM-SOY CHICKEN on this totally welcome, boring day.
Get out the old Dutch Oven as this is another slow cook recipe. Start by browning up your marinated chicken, then remove the chicken and add some garlic. Saute the garlic.
Pioneer Woman’s recipe called for an entire bottle (20 oz.) of soy sauce. I just couldn’t do it. I put in a cup and even that was too much. I also substituted peach preserves for the plum jam. And one last comment before I end this post of a welcome boring day. If you spray your measuring cup with spray oil before adding the honey, the honey just slips right out. I love spray oil.
So this concludes my post about HONEY-SOY-PLUM CHICKEN.
This concludes my post about a welcome boring day.
This concludes. . . .
. . .wait. . .
is that the door bell?
THE UPS MAN!!!
Is that package really for us? Not for the business? Not a package for the missionaries that use us as their U.S. mailing address? A real honest-to-goodness package?
And suddenly our welcome, boring, uneventful day turned into. . .
The package contained this funky sprinkler.
The peace of our quiet boring day was shattered with squeals of icy delight.
And thus ended a perfectly packaged summer day.
