Saturday Recipe

I don’t seem to have had too many recipes which really appealed to me sent to me lately. There was a very good mussel recipe but not everyone likes fish or can eat it. I ended opting for this chicken recipe which sounded pretty good. Came from My Recipes.

Have a great weekend


  1. Sounds good! Hope you are having a good weekend!

    1. Going to a friend's for supper tonite. That's always good.

  2. I agree. I am the best guest because I always appreciate how much work it is to have people over, the shopping, cleaning and cooking. I relax when I am a guest, not when I am a hostess.

    1. You're so right. It is a lot of work. Always enjoy it though.

  3. Looks delicious Jo. I love yogurt as a side.

    1. Me too. Have you checked out the Indian raitas. All made with yoghurt.

  4. Excellent thoughts. Yes, everyone not likes fish but most of the people like the chicken. Similar to this chocolate is the popular to many people. And if this is a Superfood Chocolate then nobody dislike it because of its nutritional quality.
