Lacking Inspiration…

March 13th, 2010

Oh the cooking slump has hit me… I hate it when that happens… the last time, I invented cooking mad libs. I went around and asked for ingredients (if I remember correctly):

Brother: Gouda
Resa: Thyme
Mom: Butternut Squash
Brother’s Girlfriend: Carrot
Dad: Chicken
Juan: Cardamon

Then I made this chicken stuffed with gouda sprinkled with a thyme herb mix with a butternut squash-carrot- cardamon sauce. Unfortunately, I did not write down the recipe to leave with you but this got me thinking…

I would like to do start making Cooking Mad Libs a more regular event… so, I ask you my dear readers… please leave me ingredients to work with in the comment section… in the following order… 1) Protein; 2) Vegetable; 3) Spice/Herb… then repeat… in other words, if you leave the first comment, please include a protein.  The second comment, a vegetable and so on… I’ll figure something out in about a week and post it… with a recipe this time, I swear…

So as not to leave you without any good recipes, here are two amazing chicken recipes that I made recently:
Amazing Oven Fried Chicken

Butter Chicken

Also, some links to some of my blogging friends… they are all doing wonderful things both food and non-food related…

My blogging mentee, Dot, is currently writing a series about her experiences with MS. Please check it out and support her.

Tammy and Bridget bring us the Chicago Cupcake Crawl for those interested in finding delicious cupcakes in Chicago.

Mark reviews cookbooks at the Gastronomer’s bookshelf so we do not waste money buying a bad cookbook.

Disclaimer: I was not paid to promote any of these blogs. They are my friends.

    Thanks so much for the linkage, Ginny… I hope you are enjoying the Bookshelf. Lord knows it’s such a task to review books well.

    My turn with a vegetable, right? Asparagus (hello spring)
