Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 14

Recipe 42
Cider Vinegar Chicken with Smashed Potatoes and a Watercress and Cucumber Salad
Matt rating ****1/2

Ingredients used:

Red-skinned potatoes
Chicken breast halves
Yellow onions
Garlic cloves
Apple cider vinegar
Chicken stock
Unsalted butter
Dijon mustard
Iceberg lettuce (it called for Watercress but Matt couldn't find it)
Seedless cucumber

I suppose I should just let my husband the photographer start taking all the pictures from now on since this picture looks like it belongs in a magazine! This dish was definitely different with the tangy kick from the vinegar but it was soooo good! I'm usually not a fan of caramelized onions but they were really good with the vinegar, broth, and seasonings used. My 16 year old nephew is staying with us this week and I think he didn't stop to breathe before he finished, and then he went back for seconds! I guess 16 year old boys will eat anything you put in front of them though, huh! Matt liked it too though so we'll call it a success!

I'm going to my church's women's retreat tomorrow (yay!!!) and won't get back til later Saturday night, so I'll cook again Sunday night. Have a great weekend!
