Tom and I went backpacking this weekend. I loved it. Tom remembered why he did not. I will be seeking out backpacking buddies to spare him further pain.
Any which way, that meant we spent a good deal of time outside of our house. Before hitting the road, we ate a giant bowl of pho at a local Carrollton eatery. Just outside of Austin, we had some barbecue. On the trails, we ate larabars, a new favorite of mine, and when we found civilization again, we had some scrumptious home cooked goodness at the Hill Country Cupboard. Delicious. Filling. Wonderful.
There seems to have been a lot of food given that it was supposed to be a "primitive" weekend. Oops.
Now that we're back home, I want to get some scrumptious and healthy food in. I also have lots and lots of cleaning to do since both my mom and Tom's parents will be visiting before the weekend comes again. The house is a pigsty. While all family members assure me they don't care, I CARE! So I will be cleaning today, which means I don't have much time to cook.
What do I use when I am rushed, tired, busy and in need of something healthilicious?
Literally all I did was strip most of the skin/fat off, rub in salt and freshly ground pepper and then rubbed again in sriracha.
Result? Pounds of meat to last the week. I took no photos because I was just too tired. Besides, it looks like juicy chicken. You all know what that looks like. I served it with roasted cabbage and okra with chacheres seasoning.
