eat make read » market week I was debating a few things regarding this post. First, should I make dinner? As nine o’clock rolled past and I was still at work, ordering dinner sounded pretty nice. But then, funny as it sounds, the thought of trying to decide what to order, then having it delivered just sounded like too much work. Tacos. Which brings me back to my internal debate… I just posted tacos last night. How Sweet It Is Honey Soy Stir Fried Chicken: Can I order an easier life? For all those who have it harder than I do.... I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself these days, with all the suffering I've been doing at the hands of Son's unsuccessful potty training venture, Daughter #1's start of school, and Daughter #2's temper tantrums over swim lessons, and all in all just being tried day after day. First grade homework stresses me out like you wouldn't believe, which sounds slightly ridiculous I know, but the act of trying to get through homework without pulling out all of my hair is a feat only managed by the best of women I'm sure. Add on top of that the driving that suddenly has tripled in my routine. Which leaves me tired. But this recipe - it's my answer to a day that was too too crazy. And when I saw them eating their meal with relish, giggling and laughing at the table as we talked about the day, I thought, well - it's a hard life, but it's one worth having. Serve topped with cilantro or spring onions as garnish.

How to Make Chicken Pad Thai . Kitchen Explorers . PBS Parents Pin It Have you ever enjoyed a restaurant meal so much you wished you could re-create it at home? Perhaps you looked on the internet for how to make that memorable dish from your own home kitchen only to be disappointed with the results and discouraged by what you hoped for would be a hit with friends and family. If it makes you feel better, I have experienced this myself on my occasions. However, there was a time early on in my marriage where my husband and I lived paycheck to paycheck, which left very little for luxuries like an evening out at our favorite restaurant if it were not a very special occasion. Growing up in a family with little means prepared me for times when I needed to be frugal, resourceful, and creative. One valuable skill I developed over the years was to re-create my favorite restaurant dishes at home not only because it was much less expensive, but because I could adjust the ingredients to suit my own personal taste and preferences.

Tandoori Chicken (Tandoori Murghi) Recipe Prick the flesh of the chicken all over with a fork. Then, using a sharp knife, cut slashes in the flesh to allow the marinade to penetrate. Place the chicken in a nonreactive large, shallow dish. In a nonreactive bowl, combine the yogurt, lemon juice or vinegar, garlic, ginger, cumin, ground coriander, cayenne pepper, cardamom, cloves, black pepper and salt. Stir until well-mixed, then pour the mixture over the chicken and rub it into the flesh, turning the chicken several times. The chicken may be grilled or roasted. Remove the chicken from the marinade, pressing lightly to extract excess marinade, and brush with oil. If roasting, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Serve with sprigs of cilantro and slices of cucumber, red onion, tomato, and lemon.
