Food :) Oh How I Love Thee! Oh, and a Bit of Hockey

So I'm back, at leas for a bit. I did some cooking over the weekend and made an absolutely amazing recipe that you all need to try.

Oh my goodness were they fabulous. Great spices, nice juicy chicken strips with a crispy crust and a lovely simple apricot dipping sauce to go along with it. Definitely something I'll be making again.

I didn't so much do the photography thing this weekend (hence me taking picture from the lovely sites I got the recipes from). I ran out of salsa last week. It was a sad day, but it did mean I got to whip up this recipe again (because seriously, why by salsa when you can make your own just the way you like it?). The recipe is so simple! My adapted recipe includes, a can of tomatoes, a big can of Rotel (I used a 28oz. can), half a lime, 2 cloves of garlic, a small chopped onion, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon cumin and about 1/4 cup fresh cilantro. Stick it in the blender and you're set :)

Saturday I went to the UW Women's Hockey game with some friends. It was pretty darn fun. Every year they try to "fill the bowl" and charge $1 for a ticket (students are free) as well as encourage people to bring a nonperishable food item to donate in addition, one of the law offices in town donated $1 for every person who attended. There were 12,402 people in attendance, it was great :) Not a bad way to spend a Saturday night.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
