I committed to finishing the 101 in 1001 project and well… I’m failing miserably at a few of my goals. ?The whole walk 5 miles a week thing isn’t going so well and I didn’t have the opportunity to make a new bread in March.
I did get the chance to try a few new recipes and so far that is going good. ?Of course ask me again when I get to the “A Man, A Can, A Plan” cookbook (don’t ask, it’s better that way).
This week, despite spending the past two days on the couch I was able to (with assistance) make Chicksicles out of Alton Brown’s “I’m Just Here For the Food.” ?This isn’t so much a cookbook as it is a manual on how to cook. ?It just happens to have recipes in it.
Chicksicles are like a combination of kebabs and satay. ?They were fairly simple to make except I broke the cardinal rule of cooking and didn’t read the whole recipe prior to starting. ?I missed the part where it said refrigerate overnight. ?I skipped that part. ?I also skipped the part where it said sesame oil since evidently I was out and didn’t know it.
Overall, I like the dish. ?Next time I would have the trusty husband grill it on a lower heat. ?The marinade did not like the high heat and blackened. ?The boy ate some of it, but I think he just wasn’t that into meat tonight, or food for that matter. ?I would give it a 3 out of 5 on the cook again scale.
I love Alton Brown yet own none of his cookbooks. I might need to rectify that.
