Wish granted…I was snowed in for the majority of the day! Matt, however, was able to make it to work safely in his trusty Subaru. Which meant that I was left to do all the shoveling! At first I was all like, “Great! This will be my work out for the day!” After shoveling for the second time, I had other thoughts. And about yesterday’s post: I like snow…when my husband is home to shovel!!! 😉
Well, it was a very productive day full of shoveling, laundry, progress reports, cleaning, and shoveling. After my last round of shoveling, I bravely ventured out to the grocery store and picked up some brown sugar for my dinner recipe and some Chardonnay (the essentials, obviously).
When I got home I pumped up some Taylor Swift on Pandora and whipped up some 30 min. Lemon Brown Sugar Chicken, thanks to Jenna @ Eat, Live, Run. It is a recipe that mixes the flavors of lemon & paprika. This recipe was also featured by Kristin at Iowa Girl Eats, and she said it tasted like Sesame Chicken…so I added toasted sesame seeds for good measure.
I DID NOT HAVE PAPRIKA! About two weeks before I moved into my house, my mom & I went out to get every spice I would need…sorry, paprika, for some reason you were overlooked! I was not about to go back out, so I did the best I could and used a Mediterranean spice mix that had paprika in it. Here’s what I ended up with:
The improvisation worked out just fine! The chicken was cooked to perfection and was super tasty! I steamed some broccoli and took a shortcut by making a 90 sec. Uncle Ben rice mix. Great satisfying meal on a cold winter day (of shoveling)!
Is it snowy where you are? One of my friends told me that Hawaii is the only state without snow! Is this true? Matt & I are Florida bound come April, and we are really missing Aruba and need some tropical temps…so let’s end the chilly trend there way before!
