I have been absent for a spell … again. But I have an excuse! I recently bought a house! I’ve been working on it for the past two months getting it into shape and making it a home, and I finally feel that I can call my new house my new home. The predominant reason this is so is because I can now enjoyably use the kitchen and it feels like mine. It’s clean, it’s large enough to move around in, and everything has a home when I’m done with it. It’s marvelous!
As I was cooking my dinner this evening, I thought about you all, and how I haven’t given you anything for a long while. What better opportunity to remedy that than the maiden voyage of a newly put together kitchen! There are several things I’d like to tell you about this evening’s culinary escapades. First, if you you like music (everyone likes music), I would recommend investing in an HMDX Jam wireless bluetooth speaker. A friend of mine introduced me to this wonderful gizmo, and it’s changed the entirety of my cooking experience. I just turn on one of my favorite playlists on Spotify, link up to the speaker, and start cookin’. Have you ever danced with a spatula & frying pan? I recommend it…
This evenings fare is chicken & rice. It’s a very simple dish. Seasoned chicken, blackened bell peppers, and brown rice. It’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s relatively quick, what more could you ask for? Plus, if you do it right, your whole house will smell of deliciousness when you’re done.
If you’d like to try this simple, yet satisfying selection, you can find a recipe in the recipes section of the blog.
Oh, and by the way, this is an excellent base to start with to create your own masterpiece. If you want something a little more gooey and savory, you might add some cream of (whatever) soup and some cheese. Or if you’re feeling a little more exotic, you can spice it up with some mango, pineapple, and a hot pepper or two. You could turn this into a chili or a soup. The possibilities are endless!
