Celebrating

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day!

I cleaned all day and then we celebrated Dr. Hubby's 35th with dinner, cake, and presents! I gave him a coffee maker with the promise of fresh coffee every morning. Wild Child gave him 2 stainless steel coffee cups. Cutie gave him 2 kinds of coffee. Manga Dork gave him a copy of his fave magazine "Diesel World."

For our dinner I made Tangy Oven Barbecued Chicken {a Pampered Chef recipe}. This was very yummy and I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch today! Dr. Hubby chose rice, mashed potatoes, and mixed greens for the sides.
Tangy Oven Barbecued Chicken
1 3-3.5 pound broiler-fryer chicken, cut up {I used 3 lbs of skinless boneless breasts}
1 cup barbecue sauce {I used KC Masterpiece original}
1/4 cup peach or apricot preserves {I used Smuckers peach}
1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place chicken in pan.
Combine remaining ingredients and spoon over chicken.
Bake 1 hour or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.

That recipe looks great.

Glad Dr. Hubby had a great birthday. Fav magazine Diesel World? The man's version of Soap Opera world or something I suppose.

I haven't been here in a while. I'm loving all the recipes. I like the red background too. I don't know if it's just my mood, but it's really comfortable to look at. Anyway, I always appreciate your comments on my blog. Someday I'm sure I'll blog again. ;0)
