Hi friends! Since this is a food blog and the show must go on I have a food post for you today.
We have been trying to cook at home more for a few reasons. For one, social distancing, two, dine in is closed and three, it’s entertainment and we gotta eat!
That list obviously doesn’t include things like the food is more nutrient dense and being able to get as many colorful fruits and veggies for our immune health but that’s a given, yeah?
I wanted to share three things we have made recently. One of those things was the “fried rice” dish I shared a couple of posts ago.
We put so many veggies in here-broccoli, kale, bell peppers, and mushrooms. It was a yummy dish!
One day for lunch we baked up chicken legs. I learned a fun tip from Bon Appetit. If you salt the legs the night before, you will get some juicy and flavorful chicken.
Juicy and flavorful they were. We seasoned 2 with Sazon, 2 with our combo of seasoning and 1 with the TJs elote seasoning.
The elote and our combo was out favorite! Our combo was super simple-garlic and onion powder and some dry dill.
Because we seasoned with salt the night before it didn’t need additional salt. Gosh was it yummy!
If you have been reading long enough, you guys know how much we love burgers so that was on the dinner menu.
We made some fries from scratch and even though some were burnt, we really enjoyed them. These are great when you have some extra time to soak and dry the potatoes. I loved that they were baked and still turned out super crispy!
Did you guys know the chicken trick? Have you made fries from scratch? Are you trying out new recipes with this newfound time? Let me know!
Thanks for reading friends! I am going to try to keep up with my Monday and Thursday schedule, but I may miss a post here or there depending on how the week is going.
Until next time stay safe and healthy friends!
