It's the weekend, I usually like to bake something. It may be a new recipe, or maybe something I've made many times. This weekend I tried two new recipes. The first was a granola bar recipe that I found on Pinterest. Later in the evening, I made chicken thighs, also a recipe from Pinterest.
I followed the recipe almost exactly, but used mini pretzel twists, instead of the pretzel gold fish. We don't have the pretzel gold fish, so I had to use what I had. They still tasted great. I think next time I make these, I will add some nuts. Maybe pecans, or almonds.
For dinner I made One Pot Chicken and Potatoes. I bought some chicken thighs on sale at the grocery store, so began the search for a new recipe on Pinterest. I wanted something besides breaded and fried chicken. I found several others that sounded good, but I figured my picky husband would like this one best. This was so easy, and very yummy! I even had the leftovers for lunch Sunday, and it still tasted good. I cut the recipe in half, because we do not need that much food. This picture is actually my left overs the next day. There weren't many potatoes left, because my husband picked those out, and left the carrots. For the green beans, I just open a can of green beans, add about a 1/2 tablespoon of butter, sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Then microwave for 2 minutes. I also love to make cheesy green beans. I will have to share that recipe on here someday.
Since these were not my recipe creations, I did not post the actual recipes to my site. Rather, I posted links to the creator's web sites, just click the recipe title above each picture for the link. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Thanks for stopping by.
