I spent the entire day in the house yesterday - doing laundry, watching Season 2 of Boston Legal, cooking, and trying to fix a couch throw that came apart in the wash. Bill was out on a Shell job and didn't make it home until dinnertime.
Speaking of dinner! Ever since I took this life insurance/commission job, I've been trying to find a way to cook dinner for less than $10 and I think I found it. Bill & I found some chicken legs on sale for $10 last week, and when we got home he skinned & trimmed & chopped them up and put them into four freezer bags. Then last night I browned one of them with some onions, made a curry Roux with button mushrooms to simmer them in, and made Bannock, a quick bread that is cut into wedges and used for dipping. Here's a quick recipe:
4 tbsp baking powder
4 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Add water until consistent with bread dough. Divide into small baseball size balls and use a rolling pin to roll them out flat. Pre-heat a non stick frying pan and cover with non-stick cooking spray. Add the dough but keep an eye on it, it'll need to be turned within a few minutes. When both sides have been browned, remove and cut into wedges.
Served with rice and veggies, this meal is perfect for winter time. The kids loved it and so did we, and we figure we made the entire thing for less than $5. Amazing.
Anyway, I have to work today so I must hurry if I want to visit a few journals before I go.
Happy Monday ♥
