Current Mood - Fall

Current Mood - Fall

Feeling all sorts of cozy in this cold weather and the perfect sweater goes to Aritzia with this Sabline knit. This must be the most relaxing saturday afternoon in a long time, just browsing the internet. Here are some finds I am currently coveting. 

I actually bought the Ted Baker iphone cover last Thursday and not only is it beautiful but it has a nice texture to the touch and a lovely message on the inside.. it's all about the small things. 

Have a good weekend!

Fred's Burbon Lemonade Chicken

I've recently learned that Fred is pretty good at cooking and I don't mean just following recipes and planning but he's one of those people who will open the fridge, look around at what is already available and come up with fantastic combinations. This chicken recipe might not be revolutionary but it is easy, quick to make and truly delicious. Perfect for a laid back Saturday evening. 

Ingredients: (Portion: 2 people)
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 2 onions
  • one and a half lemon (extract juice)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ chili flakes
  • 3 oz Jim Bean (or other burbon)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • salt to season
  • pepper to season

1.     Coarsely chop onions
2.     In a small bowl combine olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, basil, chili flakes, jim Bean, garlic.
3.     Salt and pepper chicken to your taste and cover the the pieces in the marinade previously prepared
4.     Place marinated chicken in a dutch oven and pour the leftover marinade .
5.     Bake for 3 hours (or until there is no more marinade and chicken is cooked) at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to check the chicken and with a spoon, take some marinade and pour over chicken every 30 minutes.

We had this last night and I simply roasted a handful of asparagus in olive oil and balsamic vinegar with a pinch of salt and pepper. A nice way to start the weekend without all the fuss.  

Bon appetit!
