Okay, So it might appear to the untrained eye that a lot of wine consumption seems to happen over here. And honestly it depends on what you think a lot is. I probably indulge in a few nice glasses of vino a week and just LOVE taking photos of it!
But the real story of Fun with fruits goes like this…
Today is Veteran’s Day, and as you know I am dating a man who has served his country. Today I wanted to do something nice for him, so I decided to make him dinner. I had a bag of apples that were staring me down and needed to get eaten so dinner needed to be apple-inspired.
I made Baked Chicken & Apples!
8 chicken parts with skins removed
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. curry powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Vegetable cooking spray
1/4 c. water
3 apples, cored and sliced
In a small bowl mix together spices. Set aside 1/2 teaspoon and sprinkle chicken with remaining spice mixture. Cook the chicken until brown.
In a baking dish arrange slices of two of the apples on the bottom then top with browned chicken. Place remaining apples on top. Then mix water with remaining spice mixture and pour liquid over all. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes
What is a good fruity meal without dessert? I normally don’t make a desert, but the boyfriend deserved it. In honor of it being Pomegranate month, as well as the blogger world filling their food blogs with this deliciousness I couldn’t help but pick one up.
Looks like a pomegranate murder…. eek.
To properly open a pomegranate check out Caitlin’s awesome directions. They worked perfectly!
This was a great night of eats, following another meeting of the Will Run For Wine Running group. We met up tonight and toughed it out through the rain! It was nice to get another 3.5 up on the board for Pile On The Miles.
