- The Baked Blueberry Lemon French Toast was from Damn Delicious and was the ladies and Mal's favorite. It is truly so easy and so yummy I will be making this for Mr. Helen and me some weekend when we are snowed in. It's great because you can prep it the night before and bake it off in the morning. I sent the leftovers home with the girls because they loved it so much.
- The Mushroom, Goat Cheese and Herb Frittata was from Williams-Sonoma Taste. Again, super easy and really delicious. Everyone started with a tiny piece then ended up going back for seconds!
These Thai Chili wings were so good and easy. First I marinated them overnight in a big plastic bag with:
2 T sesame oil
1 T soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic, pushed through a press
1/2 tsp. of fresh ginger, minced.
Bake at 425 for about an hour, then toss in sauce:
1/2 cup Thai Sweet Chili Sauce (it's usually in the "International" aisle in your grocery store)
1 T sriracha
To go with these wings, I made a fabulous Cheesy Bacon Tater Tot Pie.
I got the recipe out of my Food Network magazine but click on that title and it will take you to it if you don't have the magazine. The only thing I did different was to cut the sriracha to 1 tablespoon, and I'm glad I did. Mr. Helen said he couldn't believe it was tater tots and I know he liked it because he polished off the leftovers the next day after round 2 of snow shoveling. I will be making this again no doubt.
So, all in all, a very successful Super Sunday!
And yes, we're being blasted by snow. It snowed all day last Friday - we got about 8 inches. Just as we'd had a bit of melting and the roads were clear, it snowed another 6 inches on Monday - my day off where I did our taxes instead of anything fun. At least I didn't have the stress I had on Friday having to drive to work in it. Now we're in a deep freeze with below zero temperatures overnight... and I think our high on Sunday is going to be 14.
