We don’t have cable and about a year and a half ago we got rid of our Netflix account because we were literally trying to put every single penny toward our student loan payoff. We figured we can watch stuff for free on Hulu to keep up with the shows we really liked. Plus it wasn’t like we were home enough to watch TV anyway, ha! Aaaanyway, as I’ve mentioned before, we are getting super close to being done with our student debt payoff so we are a little more lax with our spending. We decided to get Netflix again! Well, technically we are still in our first free month, but we are planning to keep it after this too. One of the shows we’ve discovered this month is Sister Wives.
I know I am way behind the times here because I’ve heard several people talking about this show over the last couple of years, but it blows my mind. Christopher and I watched the first episode together and we both just sat there with our chins practically on the floor. It’s just so hard to wrap our minds around something that is so different from anything we understand. I think it blows my mind how happy the women seem even though they all share one husband/father to their children. I watch episode after episode looking for answers to why they have chosen this lifestyle. Anyway, definitely has made for some interesting conversations lately.
A while ago, I came across this pin on Pinterest called “Man Pleasing Chicken” from Witty in the City blog. I made it last month and just now realized that I never got around to posting it on the blog. Not only was it “man pleasing chicken” it was also “Rach pleasing chicken” ha!
1.5 lb chicken breast
1/2 cup honey dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
salt and pepper
1. Preheat oven to 450. Whisk together honey dijon mustard, maple syrup, and rice wine vinegar in small bowl.
2. Season chicken with salt and pepper then place in a foil-lined baking dish. Pour maple mustard mixture over them, turning the chicken until they are fully coated.
3. Bake 30 minutes then remove from oven to baste chicken again. Put back in the oven for another 30 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 165F. Plate chicken and add extra sauce on top. Top with a little fresh rosemary.
So today I am hanging out with Hadley again which is fabulous. She is super sweet and makes my heart smile. I think I hear her starting to wake up, though, so I am going to end this. Hope you guys have a great Thursday!
