Chicken And Ba-Day-Dahs

Ingriedients

Chicken-1 whole bird, cut into pieces or legs & thighs (If you use boneless, skinless breasts, they will dry out badly by the time the potatoes cook).

White Potatoes-3-4, peeled & cut into wedges.

Sweet Potatoes-1 or 2, peeled and cut into pieces (not to small, or they will turn to mush).

Sweet Italian sausage-2 or 3 links, cut into 2 inch chunks.

Oil-2 or 3 tbsps.

Oregano-1 or 2 tbsp.

Salt & Pepper to taste (and if you want it to taste good, don’t be afraid to be generous with the salt).

Garlic-4 or 5 cloves, peeled and sliced.

Instructions

Place chicken, potatoes & sausage into a very large roasting pan. Pour oil over the top.  Add generous amount of salt and pepper.  Crush organo between fingers over top of everything. Toss well with your hands until everything is coated with oil and spices. Spread evenly in pan. Tuck slices of garlic evenly throughout the pan.  Cover with foil and bake covered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.  Uncover and continue baking until everything is browned and crispy (another 45-60 minutes).

Note: These are approximate amounts and times, just meant to give you an idea of how to make the dish. You can leave the sausage out if you’d like; you can substitute carrots for the sweet potatoes; you can increase or decrease the amount of garlic; or you can use different herbs like Italian seasoning. Just have fun with it.

Square Of The Week, Bohemian For A Blanket

Inspired by PBS’S CREATE CHANNEL, Knit And Crochet Now at the end of the show, square of the week.  Each week Brett Bara would demonstrate a new square of the week for a square sample blanket.  This bohemian blanket with my version of a granny square stitch will be for my bed soon.  With bohemian making a big comeback and mom painting my bedroom red, I wanted to transform my bedroom into a tropical bohemian bedroom oasis.  This square represents some of the great colors that are in bohemian style.  Granny square has an open stitch that allows you to not feel super warm, but warm enough to take the cold edge off. 

I realized when making blankets for laps and beds, it’s easier to start off with a small square and turning that small square into something big.  I also realized with squares you can sew them together as well.  I’m not the greatest sewer, but I’m learning as I go.  See this blanket come alive this summer.

Newspaper Is Back

Going back and fourth in my mind of having a digital newspaper generated with my tweets and interests, I finally decided to keep, generate, and have my own paper by Paper.li.  Building sales with Etsy and other parts of my business, stay tuned for a widget on my blog for my online newspaper LMProck.  Reading this paper is free, no need to pay. Newspaper is generated once a day, so keep your eyes open.
