Day 14: A Funny Memory from Childhood.
Well this always gets me to chuckle when I start thinking about it. As a small boy, I had some problems with my speach. I pronounced my Ts like Fs and could not pronounce my Rs. Well you can imagine my mother’s embarrassment when we would go to parades and I would get excited at the Fire Trucks and say: “Look Mom a fire f-uck!” My poor mother would just die of embarrassment and have to explain to people what I was actually saying!
Day 13 A Favorite Recipe.
First I’ll say I’m Italian and I don’t use no stinking recipe! 😉 Though I do have a few that I enjoy. This one is one of my own creation.
Eddie’s Famous Lemon Chicken
Warning: this will cause puckering…it’s not a sweet dish but a sour.
5-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs: cut into small cubes or nugget size
1-2 clove of garlic chopped
1 Spanish/Red Onion cut into rings (thickness is your preference)
6-7 fresh lemons
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of oregano and rosemary (fresh if possible)
Cut 3-4 of your lemons into wedges and remove the meat from the rind. Use the juice of 1-2 lemons over your chicken while cooking. The remaining lemons cut into wedges and use them as a garnish.
In a good size sauté pan (must have a lid), add olive oil, garlic, and onions. Let cook about 1 minute. Add chicken and lemon meat; sprinkle with spices, and slowly simmer (covered) until chicken is done (stir occasionally). Onions should be nice and caramelized by the time you serve.
Serve over noodles or rice. For a side dish, a fresh salad will touch off this dish.
Salt and or Pepper to taste. If you enjoy Sangria or Raspberry Wine serve with this dish and enjoy!
As a way to challenge myself to write more (and to have topics to actually write about!) I have decided to participate in #Blogtober14, which is a challenge to write a blog post every day in October (though I’m joining twelve days late), complete with prompts!
Day 12: Best advice you’ve been given.
I’d have to say the best advice I’ve been given is simply to embrace my happiness and the rest of life will go by easily. So that my dear readers is what I pass on to you. Embrace your happiness, make it contagious so it spreads to others!
