Krispy Kreme

I remember my Dad bringing home doughnuts that were amazing--Krispy Kreme. I think my Dad would get a couple of dozen and then hide them so he could enjoy them later. I am starting to understand this thinking. I don't mean this as a slight against my Dad, just a fun memory. Asher surprised me and got doughnuts for us to enjoy. Thanks, Lovey you are the best! I can't remember who got the last of that doughnut.

What's for dinner?

Hmm, what do I want to cook for dinner? I go through this every time. Some nights are easier than others. I like trying new things.

1/2 c. cornmeal
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. curry powder
1 (2 1/2 to 3 lb.) chicken, cut up
1/4 c. butter, melted
Combine cornmeal, brown sugar, curry powder. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Brush each chicken piece with butter. Roll in cornmeal mix to coat. Arrange chicken skin side up and so pieces don't touch in shallow baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining corn mix. Bake uncovered in 375 degree oven for 50 minutes or until tender. Do not turn. 6 servings.

Here is a picture of the Curried Chicken Bake. It does not look very good but tasted great. It is similar to breaded chicken. The corn meal makes it crisp.

Asher made the Stir Fry. I love this stir fry. I like my vegetables to be crisp and they always are when Asher cooks.

I have a lot of fun trying new recipes but if the dish does not turn out how I see it in my head then I don't like the dish. Asher loved the dish and so I tried to change my thinking.
Hope you enjoy Dinner!
