Quickie About Chickie

This week, in our ongoing efforts toward Getting Settled, I resumed my old (sporadic) practice of jotting down quick notes about what we did/read/discussed/made each day. I do this in blog form* because that works better for me than paper. Yesterday I added the new chores & meals schedule the girls and I drew up. Chicken is a staple for us, and it’s on the menu twice a week. Tonight, Friday, is grilled chicken night. I have a big bag of frozen boneless chicken breasts, and I’ll thaw a few, slather them with Tastfefully Simple Raspberry Chipotle sauce and cook them on my trusty George Foreman grill.

(Have I gushed about my George Foreman here? I love him. He is my friend. He makes my life much easier. He feeds me panini sandwiches, and there’s pretty much no faster way to my heart.)

Anyway, I was reading Genevieve‘s delightful blog this morning and saw that she has linked to an article full of recipes for grilled chicken.  Very useful. I’ll have to give some of these a try, especially the nut-crusted recipe. Yum.

*As blogs go, my daily journal is nothing special. I ignore it sometimes for months at a stretch. It isn’t really fit for public viewing, but I share the link in the spirit of putting people at ease. It’s so easy to read people’s blogs (real blogs, I mean) and feel overwhelmed by how much Great Stuff everyone is doing. I think it’s useful, once in a while, to see how much (or as is often the case, how little) REALLY happens in the course of a real live day. And what I love is that even on the days when I have comparatively little to record, there is always, always, some great conversation or moment of discovery to remember.

    I love that TS raspberry sauce. Have you tried the peach salsa?

    Many thanks for linking my blog. 🙂 I’m still on recipe trial #10-ish *laughs* Maybe it’s time to get a Foreman grill….

    Oh and I”m sure Erica has already mentioned Henry’s.. the cheapest & best place for vegetables, fruits and all things natural. 🙂 Though I do have a soft spot for Ranch 99. It also houses the best Chinese take out in San Diego. Facing the restaurant, pick the one to the left. Yummy!

    I like the idea of jotting down what happens daily – I do it in a notebook – not always daily but often enough to count as records for the state. Even on “loose” days we have lots of real learning. 🙂

    Merry Xmas, Lissa!
