Yes, it's true, I'm becoming domestic! April (my wonderful sister in law) wanted to know what kind of things I've been doing to be domestic, so here ya go!
1) I actually took the time to look through the cook books we got for the wedding and tagged the ones that sounded good (and cheap)!
2) I wear an apron when I cook and I feel makes me get in the mood of cooking :)
3) I actually use the recipes I'm looking at...example?

Lemon Chicken Thing (That's my title)
Ok, so for this one I actually combined a couple of recipes because we didn't have everything for just one of the recipes. I felt like freakin ratatouille in the kitchen--I was just throwing in things like crazy and it was great!
Melt some butter in a pan and drop in a bit of lemon juice (maybe 1 teaspoon to tablespoon)
Put uncooked chicken in the pan and put a tid-bit of lemon juice on top
Sprinkle minced garlic or garlic salt on top
Season with anything else you want to
After chicken is cooked, reduce heat to low and pour 1 can of cream of chicken soup
Stir around and season some more (ya, I'm totally sophisticated and exact here hahaha)
Serve over rice with some salad and other veggies

So, voula! New recipe that Grant has not eaten before--success! Tonight I'm going to try a modified version of Mom's chicken enchiladas...wish me luck!


  1. Yay for making homemade food! It's so much fun to be domestic :)

    I mentioned on facebook that I have a blog where I put different recipes. I haven't posted for awhile until today, but since I've been trying out new recipes lately, I'm planning on putting them up a lot more. Feel free to check them out...THey aren't anything too extraordinary, but they taste yummy :) I'd also recommend or for recipes that are cheap and yummy...and . Okay I'm done! :) That chicken sounds yummy!

  2. oops. here's my blog :)
