Whats everyone having for dinner?
I thought I would share what I’m having, incase anyone is out of ideas 😉
Coconut Lime Chicken.
1/4 cup of lime juice.
2 tablespoons of minced ginger.
3 cloves of minced garlic.
1 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
and 1 can of LITE coconut milk.
Pour ontop of chicken and put in the fridge for about 4 hours.
Bake at 475 for 30 minutes, turning the baking sheet if need to if the chicken is browning too much.
Well that is cooking, prep the glass noodles (these bad boys literally only need 2 minutes in the water). Chop up some cilantro, a carrot into small shreds, some bird eye chili if you want spice, some slices of onion and garnish with a lime wedge.
Seriously, so easy.

@menzies: That looks soooo yummmeh!
Unfortunately I have about 10 minutes in which to eat something between getting out of work at 5pm, letting my dog out, feeding my cat and getting to class at 6pm so I will probably be making some junky microwave meal or a grilled cheese!

I also wanted to share my no fail, simple, but DECLIOUS desert for when you don’t have time to bake, or just don’t want to.
Seriously ladies, you’ll be amazed how this taste because it’s sooo easy.
Lemon Yoghurt Cake!
3/4 cup butter, room temperature (on the counter for 30 minutes)
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Zest of one lemon (don’t have to do this, when I’m super lazy, I skip it and add more lemon juice in the glaze.)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup Vanilla Yoghurt
3 eggs, room temperature.
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream together butter and sugar (you don’t have to use a mixer, I never do) until smooth. About 10 minutes of whisking with lots of breaks 😉 Add lemon juice, zest and vanilla! Combine. Then add the yoghurt, and eggs one at a time. Stiring between each addtion. Then add flour, baking powder and salt! Mix still smooth.
This can be baked in a loaf tin for a loaf or a cake tin for a cake 😉
Either way it’s about 50 minutes at 350. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before placing that bad boy on a cooling rack (or plate)
1 cup powdered sugar
3 to 4 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Whisk together, stab your cake with a fork and pour this over top.
Seriously ladies, you’ll love this cake!

@MsPiggy: I’ve never heard of it!
But I totally get comfort food. When it gets cold here, I will be making a lot of that.

My husband will for yet another night this week be making some magic out of the half-portion of groceries we bought the day after we returned from the honeymoon (nearly 2 weeks ago!). Every day when I come home, I get off the elevator and it smells like heaven in the hallway. Wholetime, I’m wondering “what in the world did he make with essentially NO groceries??” I think he mentioned something about making soup with the sad, lonely chicken carcass chilling in the fridge. I have no doubt that it will be absolutely delicious!

@Overjoyed: Oh you’re so lucky!
My husband doesn’t even know how to use our stove.

@menzies: Oven Fajitas for us. Except I use mushrooms instead of chicken. It’s one of our favorite dinners.

Going to be making sweet and sour pork, I actually need to get to the grocery store to buy everything so I can start it marinating, but I’m being lazy and don’t want to get up!
