I’m going to let you in on a little secret. My life is kind of hectic sometimes. Or most of the time. So whenever you see a post of food I’ve made, it’s food I’ve made for my family. I don’t have time to make meals just for this blog, so most of the stuff you see is what I’ve made for dinner on a particular night.
While this works for me most of the time, winter in Minnesota is not the ideal time for taking dinner photos. Why is that? Oh, right, because it gets dark about 4:30 pm these days. And we don’t eat that early. So it makes for challenging photo sessions, to say the least. It’s sort of comical, actually.
Anyhow. Tonight I made totally amazing burgers. I’m not a huge burger girl, really, but at the Minnesota State Fair every year I have a wild rice burger. To be clear, it’s not like a vegetarian burger that’s just made from rice. It’s a beef burger with wild rice in it. It’s pretty darn tasty. And since I ended up with some extra wild rice after Christmas, I thought I’d try my hand at burger making. (more…)
Oh my. It’s only 1:37 and it’s already been quite a day. I should have known. Waking up to snow on April 20th is a terrible omen.
Add to that the fact that my son has decided lately that he will not go back to sleep if he wakes up early from his nap, no matter how short it’s been. He doesn’t seem to care that about half an hour after getting up he will completely fall to pieces from exhaustion. And then I will fall to pieces from all the fussiness directed at me until he gets tired enough to take another nap.
Anyway. On days like today, it’s nice to have really easy recipes in your repertoire. Like this one.
I titled this post “Easiest Chicken Ever.” and although I suppose there might be an easier chicken recipe out there, this one is incredibly delicious despite the minimal work involved.
