Last night’s dinner

I wouldn’t normally take a picture of sausages and a bit of salad but this was great. I used my good old Cuisinart griddler and cooked the sausages with some mushroom halves. When they were done, I grilled some flatbread, cut-up the sausage and made a quick tomato salad with feta and parsley.

The crepes were especially nice a few hours later.

Tonight’s dinner

Pulling out the slowcooker yet again to test another recipe for use this fall when things get really crazy and I’m back to work.

1 (3 1/2) pound broiler-fryer chicken, cut up
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1.In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken in oil on both sides. Transfer to a slow cooker. Combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, water, garlic and ginger; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low; cook 4-5 hours longer or until the meat juices run clear. Remove chicken to a serving platter sprinkle with almonds. Spoon juices over chicken or thicken if desired.

Honestly, I’m just going to throw everything into the cooker with a whole chicken and see what happens at the end of the day.
