Thinking.... thinking... thinking.... I'm at a fork in the road and must think.
I'm also going through my e-mail and need to reply to several messages so I can clear out my inbox. I'm getting bad about not replying and then things pile up.
I need to write a letter to my mom and dad too. Bad daughter. Bad bad daughter.
I've got some work to catch up on too.
Well, at least there's something that looks like a dinner in the oven.
With that "to do" list, what shall I do? I shall blog (a.k.a. procrastinate). I thought I would take this moment to reply to some recent comments left here, anyway. That might make me feel like I've accomplished something.
Firstly, Ranter notes, in regard to Magnum's and my kidless hike on Friday: "I prefer other things to do when kidless (which is nearly never). LOL"
My reply: I didn't say that all we did was HIKE on our day of hookie. It's just that that was the only activity I had a photo of. Y
Nextly, Terri says: "Care to share the wing recipe?"
Sure, why not. Sharing is caring!
Chicken (or pork) adobo is practically a national dish in the Phillipines, I think. I've seen several variations on this recipe, but this is what I do because it's the easiest and still tastes yummy! If I'm making it as a main entree', I use thighs, but wings are nice as an appetizer or for potluck.
1.5 T vegetable oil
8 bone-in chicken thighs
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 C apple cider vinegar
1/2 C Soy sauce
Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat.
Add the chicken and cook about 5 min. per side.
Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
Pour off all but about 1 T of pan drippings and turn heat to low.
Add garlic and saute for about a minute.
Add the vinegar and soy sauce and stir to incorporate.
Return the chicken to the skillet and cook, covered, for about 20 min.
Uncover, increase the heat to med-low and cook 15-20 minutes longer, occassionally spooning the sauce over the chicken until the sauce thickens and the chicken is nicely glazed.
Serve with rice.
Warning: Your house will smell like adobo afterward. For a while.
