I love making new foods and trying new things in the kitchen! I think it keeps things interesting and is a positive thing to challenge ourselves and our children to try new things.
First up-I made some miniature Lasagna cups! They were really popular here:)
One of the other things we love to do is make fresh juice with our electric juicer.
This time, I used carrots, black grapes and apples.
It is always a snack-fest as well. The girls love to eat the fruit before I can even get it into the juicer! I guess I shouldn't complain, LOL:0
Here's my glass of fresh juice--yummy!
We usually do this in the fall to stave off all of the cold germs, too!
Gotta teach them young how to enjoy healthy foods!
The next thing I would like to share is a TREAT, for sure! I made these little ditties as appetizers for our "Taco Tuesday" night. They are considered a treat because I rarely fry anything in this house. So, the girls and my hubby really looked forward to it and enjoyed them.
They were gone in no time!!!
Now, I would like to share how to make the most delicious roasted chicken.
We usually buy 1 or 2 whole chickens per week. I like to roast them up and use them in a variety of ways. If I am using them in a secondary preparation, I will use less seasoning. In this case, this chicken was going to be eaten for Sunday dinner, so it has all of the bells and whistles.
You can use whatever seasonings you like, but I HIGHLY recommend using a fresh lemon, fresh herbs (I use thyme and rosemary) and a chopped onion!!!!
*The key to an amazing roasted chicken is to cook it breast-side DOWN! I also do this with my Thanksgiving turkey, and it just is so tender and juicy, it literally falls apart. The 2nd critical piece is to cover the chicken. I use a roasting pan with a lid. The 3rd key is to cook it "slow and low."
