Believe it or not, I managed to actually cook a bona-fide meal! Wohoo!! I even set up G-man's bouncy chair in the kitchen (safely out of the way of culinary dangers) so he and I could hang out while I was cooking. Somewhat unfortunately, though, this leftovers container is the only pic I have of it. Oh well. A testament to how tasty it was!
Since my lengthy blogging hiatus, Pinterest seems to have soared in popularity. I'm not immune; I even have a board linking back to this blog, showcasing my favourite pics. No harm there! I bring up Pinterest because Hubs' mom posted this recipe the other day, and it caught my eye. Stupid-simple? Spicy? Tasty-looking? Using ingredients I usually have around the house? Winner!
|Here's the pic from the recipe at this site. MUCH better than mine (and looks far more appetizing!)|
Of course, I can't leave well enough alone. I had to muck with both the recipe and the method of preparation (the original involving the use of chicken, which isn't Hubs' favourite, and far too many dishes for my liking. Ain't nobody got time to wash all that!). This is my slightly altered version!
