it's been a manic time here in this space, in my life. making it thru this season in one piece with minor tantrums & tears would be considered a miracle. i won't bore you with the details, the fruits of the hysteria will more than likely make an appearance here anyway. because i am so busy and tired, listless and directionless, stretched thin of patience and time, i'm sharing a very simple recipe for a week night meal. i did not measure so the proportions listed are guesses.
sorry about that. just taste it before you add the chicken & you'll be fine. as always, use the freshest ingredients possible, and organic of course.
naturally, despite all this, i still manage to gawk a few things. what i've been obsessing over lately:
basketweave icing tutorial (you're effing welcome, FINALLY, a post that shows how to make this cake design, even if it is in spanish.)
chunky/bulky cowl - i'm pretty sure this is knitting, which i need to get back into, cus crocheting is just not getting me this kind of bulky stitch
don't be like the rest of them darling - henry rollins said it better but you know, some people require packaging. cut yourself from stone.
most of my daydreams can be seen on my pinterest. play along, won't you?
Crock Pot Honey Soy Sauce Chicken
1 lb skinless/boneless chicken thighs
1/4 cup honey
1/4 soy sauce
half onion, diced
1 TBL tomato paste, loosened with a smidge of water
2 cloves of garlic, minced
healthy shake of red pepper flakes
salt/pepper to taste
the night before, mix everything in crock pot bowl. get your hands dirty, rub that sauce all over the chicken. cover and leave in fridge. when ready to cook, set on low in crock pot for 3-4 hours.
since this cooks for just 3-4 hours if you've a timer, set it to start 4 hours before you get home from work, or if you're lucky like dw & able to come home during lunch break, start it then.
serve with brown rice, garnished with diced green onions.
