Here are the beets. Washed and ready to be peeled.They turn my hands bright pink!I love the look of them sliced...all the colorful rings.And these will be used in a Chicken Dish I'm making tonight.Of course I did a few other things today as well. Made the bed, did some dishes, etc etc. I even read for a while this morning...and of course hung out online......LOL
IN a bit I'll start tonight's dinner and then I'll have dishes to do and a kitchen to clean. And who knows what CDR and I will do later tonight...maybe go for a drive, or just hang out together on the front porch.
Update: So here I am getting ready to start dinner. I made a modified version of this recipe.
Although I didn't have any Apricot Preserves, but I did have some Orange Pineapple Marmalade with Mint and Carrots that I used instead. I also didn't have any Broth or Sherry, so I used wine instead. It turned out really great. I served it with some leftover Jasmine Rice from a few nights ago...and the beets of course.
Oh, and I chose to cook it on the stove rather than microwave the whole thing. I cooked the chicken with the Green Peppers and heated the 'sauce' in a separate small pot. When it was all pretty much done I mixed the sauce in with the chicken and let it simmer for a few minutes more.
And for tonights entertainment we didn't go for a drive or relax on the porch( well ok I 'tried' to relax on the porch...but was interrupted every two minutes by CDR yelling 'Marrrrge") In my spare time I often get to 'help" CDR with the house rennovations. I get to hold up wallboard, Hand him screws, help him carry plywood....etc etc. Tonight was no exception.
