I love hanging out at home. So cozy and convenient. I have traveled so much in the past 2 years that I really really appreciate weekends at home – and this one was just that!
We didn’t do much of anything all afternoon. I watched some great HGTV!
To spice up the night, we had a great Sunday chicken dinner.
I picked up two chicken legs from Davis Creek Farm at the farmer’s market this weekend. We pan-seared them, dumped on a boat load of Dr. Pete’s Praline Mustard Glaze and then oven-finished them for another 15 minutes or so at 400*.
Matt reduced the sauce on the stovetop while the chicken rested. This is his favorite culinary technique and he does it almost every time he cooks! Just remove food and set sauce pan to high and let it bubble down until it’s nice and thick. This was kind of like having a caramel chicken : )
We served the chicken with a mix of bok choy and broccoli steamed in a mango chutney I had on hand.
And a hunk of Dakota! Hunks are bread are better than slices.
Although clearly somebody else sure likes slices!
Matt and I are settling down with a movie – “On The Waterfront” (from 1954 – I know nothing about it) and this box of chocolates. Well not the whole box – just a taste. I’m not complaining, but I’m also not sure I need to be taste-testing sweets so often. [These are an OpenSky possibility.] I have to try them to give an honest review right!? They sure look good!
Hope y’all have a wonderful week ahead. Better start planning Thanksgiving menus soon!
