What's For Dinner Tonight? - Baked Chicken Wings Seasoned With Onions Garlic and Lemon Slices

The "seasoning" thing came about because of the way that I learned how to roast a turkey for Thanksgiving. There was a lot of preparation involved when I made my Thanksgiving turkey last year and I thought that since I was baking the same rules would apply even if it was chicken (or pork chops). It worked very well with the pork chops so I decided to try it again with the chickens that I have.

Plus I like the baking method of cooking because I like the smell that it makes throughout the house while I'm doing something else - usually while I'm at the computer like now!

So right now my chicken wings are baking in the oven. They have about an hour to go before I will go check on them.

The side dish that I am going to have with the chicken wings will be rice!

I know its important to eat healthy so that is why I have the rice in the first place.

Also too I'm planning to "pig out" when I get my Adsense check next week!

What I Made ForDinner - Garlic & Lemon Flavored Breaded Pork Chops With Rice!

Ahhhh! The joy of cooking! I usually like to bake my meat so that I can smell it cooking throughout the house. This particular time I made baked some pork chops - which was a real treat for me because I haven't bought pork chops in a loooonng while!

The garlic and lemon flavor idea I got from when I was baking my Thanksgiving turkey last year! What I did was finely chop up some onions and garlic and added that to the baking pan with the already breaded pork chops. I sliced a slice of lemon and also added it to the baking pan. Slowly cooked for about 2 and a half hours.

The rice was an additional side dish. It was the "healthy" portion of the meal!

What I Had For Breakfast Today - Scrambled Eggs & Ham

It isn't "original" but this was definitely a hearty breakfast! Scrambled eggs are pretty much my standard as far as eggs go. I have made hard boiled eggs and have used eggs to make french toast too. Instead of regular bread I had garlic bread with butter and I find that I am becoming increasingly fond of garlic bread. It's a nice thing to have besides just plain white bread!

I do have to make a habit of eating some kind of breakfast before I go out for the day and this is something that I'm working on.

Ironically since this was a Saturday and I didn't have to go anywhere a nice, big breakfast sounded like a good idea!

Of course I used butter to scramble the eggs with and I used some left over lard grease to fry the ham with.

The garlic bread was store bought and I just spreaded some butter on it and put it in the microwave for 1 minute.

Tommorrow I will have a more "healthy" breakfast! - LOL!
