I made something I’m calling Turmeric Chicken, for lack of a better name lol, last week. This was my first time using turmeric and I was afraid I had used too much, but it came out great, and my family ate it all.

We had the first cookout of the year on Saturday! We cook over a fire in the fire pit that my husband made with rocks found on our property.

I made oven Roasted Chicken and Vegetables last week. I’ve made variations of it before, and it always comes out good. The family loved it, and ate it all!

Roasted Chicken and vegetables

While I was outside working on garden stuff, my 28 year old son decided to make chocolate chip cookies. He found the recipe we use, with the ingredients on the front of the card, and the directions on the back. Except he didn’t know the directions were on the back. lol So he assembled the ingredients in his own interesting way. lol I walked in to find him using a potato masher to mix everything together. He put the dry ingredients in the bowl first, then added the shortening and butter, and was using the potato masher to mix it all together! lol

Surprisingly, they were edible. lol

It’s been a long time, as in a couple of years, since I made homemade English Muffins. I decided it was time to rectify that situation last week. I had my daughter mix up the dough, and I did the cutting and cooking.
