Old Home Week

Like I mentioned yesterday, Momma and Daddy had friends visiting this week, and it was awesome. They played Rock Band til Momma lost her voice, and ate at favorite eatery. To continue the nostalgia, Momma made her Cajun Chicken with Brown Rice tonight. This, along with great pasta sauce and garlic shrimp, is one of Momma's signature dishes. It's moist, spicy, and filling, and has a flavor punch.

It starts out like this in raw form:

On the chicken is creole seasoning, garlic salt, onion powder, savory seasoning, pepper, and salt. Then it goes into a covered skillet with olive oil and butter to cook on medium for about 20 minutes. It can be cooked on high, but Momma usually does it this way so the rice can finish while the chicken is cooking. Momma is excellent at multi-tasking! The advantage to covering it and cooking on medium is that a nice crust forms on the chicken, making it crispyish and super flavorful.

Once the rice and the chicken are done they look like this:

It's best with some sort of rice or pasta, but I guess it could be good with a vegetable like peas or green beans. 

Today I got to play frisbee! We went to the apartment complex's dog park and I got played for about 10 minutes. There were dandelions, and when I ran through them they all puffed up! It was cute, according to Daddy.

And for those of us keeping score at home, check out the number of protein based meals Momma and Daddy have made!
