I just made this: http://anahata56.livejournal.com/926957.html

(Edited due to cut tag not wanting to behave.)

Granted, I had to tinker with it a tad, as we didn't have quite enough chicken stock on hand and no mushrooms at all. But only a small amount of on the fly tinkering.

I am currently almost finished with a serving.

The urge to speak in tongues is creeping up on me. Assuming I can stop melting for long enough, of course. Or purring. My dear [livejournal.com profile] anahata56, if there is something I can do for you for sharing this, please, let me know.

I have a family caramel recipe I could share . . .

Making sure I don't forget this one. I was just fooling around a bit in the kitchen since dinner was grilled chicken and brown rice with no other flavouring, and I wanted to throw together a sauce for it. It worked out rather incredibly well.

2 1/2 sticks of butter
Eating spoon of Djonn mustard
Sploosh of lemon juice
3-4 cloves of garlic
Moderate dill weed
Light black pepper
Light parsley
Light ground mustard

Peel and mince/crush garlic. Set aside. Melt butter over low to medium heat, stirring constantly. Mix in Djonn mustard and lemon juice half way through melting process. Stir mustard in very well, using a whisk if needed. Stir in remaining ingriedients when butter is fully melted. Sauce should be served hot or moved to a chafing dish. Refrigerate in sealable container; reheat on stove.

This was really fantastic with the chicken and brown rice. I think it would work really nicely on salmon as well.

In case I never mentioned it before, I've always been lousy at keeping up with diaries and journals and whatnot. Especially so when life is going mostly smoothly.

We have (sort of) done the December decorating. We have a very small fake tree set up on a stool, on account of not having room in the apartment for anything larger. It still looks very cute, and it has ornaments and blue beads and silver stuff. It's in front of one of our bookshelves, the one that we nailed four stockings to. There's more blue beading draping from stocking to stocking, and lights strung around the shelving a bit above that. It's a very nice effect.

I have made caramels, and they are good. This is an understatement of vast proportions, but it does not do to let the entire world know that you make an addictive substance in your kitchen. I will be asking [livejournal.com profile] warinbear to cut the sheets later this week, because that's the only way they'll get cut as opposed to eaten outright.

The three of us, [livejournal.com profile] reana and [livejournal.com profile] darcsyde took Bear-Cub and Puppy Christmas shopping yesterday. JoAnn's, a half-priced bookstore, and Marshalls. With lunch out between the bookstore and Marshalls. Started around 11:20 and Warin headed down to Huntsville with the girls at 3:00. Uff da. Those girls have frickin' energy.

[livejournal.com profile] louisadkins and I have a chiropracter appointment later today. We also need to get some gorcery shopping done. We'll do one more grocery run on Thursday to get some of the more perishable stuff for Christmas dinner, and then we'll hole up in the apartment.

I'd almost forgtten how much running around tends to accompany this part of the year. -laugh- Ah, well. It's all good.

I find myself wanting chicken. Not just any kind of chicken, but a dish that I improvised a few weeks ago.

At least 2 decent sized chicken breasts, de-boned, diced
1 onion, diced Pick one of the sweet onions for this
About 3-5 carrots, diced
About 4 or so medium size potatoes, well, they were sort of diced
1 medium sized apple, whatever flavour you like, diced
1 shot of Absoluut Citroen And only one shot, or you'll be very tipsy at the stove
Splash in "whatever sounds right" amounts of:
Apple juice
Soy sauce
Lemon juice
Apple cider vinegar
Garlic powder

Adding broccoli and/or snap peas would probably work as well. We just didn't have any when I made this.

Find the largest skillet you own. No, bigger. No, no, trust me, bigger. Pour all of the above into said skillet. Cook until chicken is done at about mediun to medium-high heat, stirring semi-frequently. Turn heat down to low, cover. Let it simmer while you cook up however many cups of rice you want. Three cups of rice was how much I made to go with this. When the rice is done, dinner is served. Chicken stuff gets served over the rice.

The above amounts fed everybody (yes, all ten of us) at Sanctuary. And half of us had it for lunch and/or breakfast the next day. I think our next bag of chicken breasts is going to used for this sometime this week.
