In the oven right now

You are going to be totally jealous of the delicious dinner Neill and I are about to embark on. That is, unless you are a vegetarian. If so, I'm sure you are already aware that your opinion does not matter.

So, I should first tell you that it is a recipe from my favorite food network house wife. Let's see if you can guess who from the description!

Last night we made a marinade for the chicken that consisted of:
-the juice of 4 freshly squeezed lemons
-3/4 cup olive oil
-Salt & Pepper
-1/2 tablespoon thyme

After letting the chicken soak up all of those fine juices over night, we popped those babies in the oven about 30 minutes ago.

While the chicken was cooking, I made a satay dip. First, I sauteed a small onion with olive oil, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes for about 10-15 minutes. After the onion became transparent, I whisked in vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, ketchup, sherry, fresh lime juice, and, of course, peanut butter! I let that cook for about a minute or two and then took it off the heat to cool.

Right now, we are waiting for the chicken to be done so that we can dig in!

On a side note, please don't judge me for all of my posts being about food. Don't hate. Appreciate.

Oh, on another side note, we had the most annoying kids calling in today to NRS and pranking us. They just wouldn't stop. I think they must have called us like 50 times. And they kept telling me that they shot my momma. Very disconcerting :( I almost snapped on them.
