Hello! How is your week going? One of the best things about blogging and reading other people's blogs is sharing successful recipes we try. A very beloved blogger who also lives in Portland not far from me is Alicia Paulson of Posie Gets Cozy blog. She recently posted about a chicken one pan meal and it looked so good that I printed out the recipe for my DIL Kristi who loves to try new recipes. (Yes, I'm spoiled!) Here is the link to the recipe. Both women used a cast iron frying pan to make the meal and so we used the vintage pan we picked up at an antique store in Missouri when we spent several days with our daughter and two granddaughters on the Lake of the Ozarks last summer.
My friends, you must try this! It's an easy one pan meal and the sauce is divine! You might think it would be very mustardy, but it's not. It tastes like something from a really fancy restaurant!! We definitely plan to make this again, but next time we might use a bigger pan as that serves 4 and we're 6 and the best part is the boys loved it.. even our picky gourmet 6 year old, Caleb.
Not much else to show you but I thought I'd share my crochet project how it looks when I'm working on it on my lap. Yarn spaghetti!
I was thinking of the perfume that came in the vintage Devon Violets bottle and so did a bit of googling.. I came up with Yardley "April Violets" so I ordered a bottle. It arrived yesterday and I really love the fragrance.. it's very light and refreshing. But it doesn't smell like real violets. Which is what I was hoping. Never-the-less, I will use this perfume as it's super pleasant and I can recommend it.
