My Very First Video Post and WIAW!

Instead of writing a blog post, today I spoke it..... after watching that, it's no way to hide which part of the country I'm from, ha-ha!

Now for the party, over at Peas & Crayons, WIAW!

.... a sample of food from the week:

I LOVED the chocolate dessert above AND SO HEALTHY! It's a win, win!

What I Didn't Eat, but man did they look good:

My FAVorite recipe from the week!

Pollo al Limone (for all of us non-French speaking folks, lemon chicken)

1 chicken, about 3 1/2 pounds cut into 8 serving pieces (I used leg quarters, because they were on sale at Whole Foods)
1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • Place chicken pieces, skin sides down, in a baking dish.  In a bowl whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper.  Pour over the chicken.  Let marinate for at least 1 hour.  (I marinated mine overnight).
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Roast the chicken for 30 minutes.  Turn the pieces skin sides up and continue to rest until browned and the juices run clear when a thigh is pierced, 30-45 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken to a platter, cover loosely with foil, and keep warm.  Pour the pan juices through a sieve into a bowl and skim off the fat.  Pour the juices over the chicken and serve.  (Don't skip this last step, the sauce is yummy!)
Let me know if you try this recipe!  My youngest daughter said, "this is the best chicken ever."  Let me know if you agree.  

Notice I don't have a picture of the final product, oops, bad food blogger. 

Well I started by saying, I was vlogging tonight instead of blogging, but I did both! :)  

I never went to the gym because I've been working on this post all night.  Oh well, tomorrow is another day.  I'll pack my workout clothes and take them to work with me.  No excuses, right.

Tell me:     Recently was there an activity in your life that seemed difficult enough to cause anxiety or fear, but afterwards seemed relatively easy?

Thanks for listening and have a great evening.

Take care,

  3. Great job Cat. It makes the blog so much more personal. Love your southern accent. I'm a wannabe southerner or Italian! Have fun decorating. I never got a chance to post on your whether you should have worn the shirt or not, but I'm glad you did. I didn't think he would notice. Guys are like that! Big hugs from me to you!

  6. Wow anonymous, you are very perceptive! yes there's lots going on in my life right now and I'm choosing to remain positive and expect a fabulous outcome. I would love to talk with y'all about it one day. For now I promised I wouldn't do that.
