Home Cooking

There is nothing quite like a home cooked meal. Now I'm no where near as good a chef as the Hungry Hoosier but I do like to dabble. What made tonight's dinner so neat was that I used fresh herbs direct from the garden. I made a sort of Thai chicken on rice. The recipe called for "fish sauce" but since I had no idea what that was, I simply used concentrated lemon juice. The fresh herbs were basil from our neighbor's garden (thanks Lisa!) and mint from our own. Stir fried the chicken, set it on top of minute rice, added a can of green beans and we had dinner. Then to top it all off we had box mix brownies with chocolate icing and marshmallows. If only stripping paint was that easy.
