Last week was the week of Thanksgiving in the United States. Americans across the land generally stop working and get together with friends and loved ones to give thanks. The year of 2016 has been a challenge, there have been some ups and there have been some downs. But, it has been a year of opening myself up and learning and receiving. This is the first year I haven’t actually had a “job”. But, still I worked.
It was a year of transition and education, resulting in reflection and meditation. We had to move my mother into memory care. As a result, we spent time cleaning out my mothers house. As many of you know, that can be a very emotional journey – with emotions ranging from highs and lows.
As I started going through my mothers recipes, I decided to cook her recipes one by one, document the results and make a page for each recipe. So, today I offer you the first recipe I cooked, Hawaiian Chicken. Yes, I could read this recipe, but I’m not sure everyone else could.
Here is a version for you to download and print to try out on your own, click here. Adjust the recipe to your taste, I use freshly squeezed pineapple juice and more garlic. And, yes, the 36 hours marinating works.
Next up – maybe her “Very Good Cornbread” of “Very Italian Chicken” (her names).
If you want to receive these recipes – sign up for my blog. When I’m finished, you will have a completed cookbook.
I’ll close with a picture of mom with all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
