Gone To Soon.


This morning while I was at work I got a call from my first-cousin on my father’s side of the family.  It was not good news, the man for whom I am named died this morning around 6AM.

It has been 15 or 16 years since I last saw you…way to long.  No words I can write here or thoughts I can think can bring you back and change things. I’m sorry you never got to meet my children, your grandchildren. You will be missed Dad.  May you and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.

A Favorite Recipe

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!
