    Easy Dessert #2

    Chocolate covered strawberries


    Fresh strawberries
    Baker's brand dipping chocolate (there's another manufacturer who makes the same kind of product, if I can remember the name I'll add it here).

    Engagement Chicken

    Know you are married but....simple and stories of it causing men to propose...cant hurt for a romantic dinner. Easy too lol



    Engagement Chicken
    •1 whole chicken (approx. 3 lb.)
    •2 medium lemons
    •Fresh lemon juice (1/2 cup)
    •Kosher or sea salt
    •Ground black pepper
    Place rack in upper third of oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Wash chicken inside and out with cold water, remove the giblets, then let the chicken drain, cavity down, in a colander until it reaches room temp (about 15 minutes). Pat dry with paper towels. Pour lemon juice all over the chicken (inside and outside). Season with salt and pepper. Prick the whole lemons three times with a fork and place deep inside the cavity. (Tip: If lemons are hard, roll on countertop with your palm to get juices flowing.) Place the bird breast-side down on a rack in a roasting pan, lower heat to 350 degrees and bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn it breast-side up (use wooden spoons!); return it to oven for 35 minutes more. Test for doneness—a meat thermometer inserted in the thigh should read 180 degrees, or juices should run clear when chicken is pricked with a fork. Continue baking if necessary. Let chicken cool for a few minutes before carving. Serve with juices.

    (Recipe can be easily doubled)
    2 bone-in pork loin chops
    2 TBS honey
    2 TBS brown sugar
    2 TBS olive or vegetable oil
    1 TBS soy sauce
    Garlic powder
    Salt
    Black pepper


    Sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder onto chops (both sides). Add oil to a skillet, heat at medium high, brown chops on both sides and put them into a baking dish.

    Blend the other ingredients together in a small bowl, pop it into the microwave for a few seconds or until the sugar is dissolved (or heat in a small pan). Brush or spread half of the soy/honey mixture onto the top of the chops.

    Bake uncovered for 15 minutes, then turn chops and add soy/honey to the other side. Return chops to oven and bake for and additional 15-20 minutes.


    You can serve that with mashed sweet potatoes seasoned only with butter, salt, and pepper, maybe a tiny bit of cinnamon and chili powder.

    Take a look in a grocery store or Target/Walmart's freezer section and choose a vegetable blend that is colorful and will look good on the plate.
    Would that work for chicken too?

    It sure would! The cooking time might have to adjusted depending on what part of the chicken you're using, but the flavors will lend themselves well to chicken.
