It’s cool!

Well…somewhat. The temperature didn’t get above 95 yesterday I think. And when I headed off to bed it was a balmy…86. WOO! I could really tell the house wasn’t all that hot when I got home from work, too. It was actually kinda nice! And leaving the house for work was…pleasant.

Of course the 100 temps will be back by next week. BOO.

I cooked a fabulous meal last night. Have I mentioned I’m loving this new recipe magazine? I might have. 🙂 I get tired of making the same things over and over again so I like to try new things. So far, everything I’ve tried from the magazine has been delicious and easy. I find chicken gets really old and boring after a while. If you feel like you’re in the chicken rut too (haha) then try this! Spicy Bronzed Chicken. It’s yum.

Spicy Bronzed Chicken

Ingredients:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon each garlic powder, salt and paprika
1/2 teaspoon each onion powder, ground cumin, chili powder and pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup butter, melted

Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. In a small bowl, combine seasonings. Dip the chicken in butter; sprinkle with the seasonings. In a large skillet, cook chicken over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until juices run clear.

That’s it! Easy, huh? And fast! I served mine with wild rice and corn on the cob. I left out the pepper, though, since I have a little one who doesn’t like hot stuff. It tasted just as good and he loved it! And there’s just something wondering about paprika and cumin together. It’s so aromatic.

Another reason I love the magazine is that it points you to their website where you can get a shopping list for the week of menus. Check out their website here.

I think I’m becoming a magazine junkie. I get Simple & Delicious, Lucky, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Fitness and Woman’s Day, as well as my RWR Report. Yeah. I might have an issue with magazines (no pun intended hehe).

Okay that’s it for me. I’m off to work!
