I made a really good one. Things are not going well, I am in a lot of pain, and keep falling asleep at odd times, but I managed to make a really delicious dinner. It’s meant for a crock pot, but since I only have a very small one, I just did it on the stove. Small red potatoes, meant to be halved, but too much pain to spend the time doing that. Baby carrots, peeled garlic cloves, peeled small onions also meant to be quartered, but didn’t. Top with some fresh rosemary springs, add some chicken broth, and top with chicken thighs, salt and pepper. Bring to simmer and cook barely simmering for about an hour and a half til everything is done and the chicken is 165 degrees fahrenheit. I used whole unboned, unskinned thighs, because that’s what was on sale at the grocery store. Speaking of chicken, and we were, I was expecting to see six thighs when I opened the package. I don’t eat a lot of meat, and haven’t bought chicken thighs in quite some time, so surprise, surprise. Have they started feeding them steroids? There were three giant thighs in the package. What? Those had to be some very big chickens. Anyway, just put some veg in a bowl after deskinning and boning the one thigh that I was having, spooned in some broth. Wow. That is really, really tasty. Real food. Done by me. I know. Made me happy.
Oh, I know; bought chicken breasts that must have bee from dinosaur chickens…huge! Scary.
Everything in the US is supersized, it seems. Giant portions, I read even fruit is bigger than it used to be. Bigger isn’t always better, is it? Giant chickens…scary is right!
