I've never had a henna tatoo...or any kind of tatoo but today I got one. Can you see what it is? Its a butterfly on a flower. Everyone in our office got one. They were free and again one of the displays. It didn't take her but a few minutes to do this one. Once it had dried she applied a clear tape over it all which I had to keep on for 6 hours. It isn't to touch water for 24 hours....and should last about 3 weeks with proper care. It will continue to deepen in colour and as I sit here having just taken the tape off I think its even darker. So that was fun. Friday's activity for me is playing on a volleyball team. I have not played in years so this should prove to be interesting.....
For dinner tonight I made -
Veggie Noodle Side Dish
...This is THE RECIPE
1 zucchini sliced
1/4 cup red onion sliced
1/4 cup fresh green beans, cut
3/4 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 yellow pepper juliened
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 package of Remen dry soup/noodle mix
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Fajita mix
1 tbsp soy sauce
In frying pan saute the veggies in the olive oil for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile boil water and follow the directions for the Remen dry soup/noodle mix discarding or using the spice package for something else.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the veggies and continue cooking until the veggies are a tender crisp. Drain the noodles and toss with veggies. Delish!
With it I served Buttermilk Oven Baked Chicken
1 fryer chicken cut up
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1 cup buttermilk
Place chicken into a large bowl and pour buttermilk over. Toss to wet each piece. Allow to marinade in fridge for about 1/2-1 hour.
Mix all the other dry ingredients and place into a large plastic zip lock bag. Add each piece into dry ingredients in the bag and shake to coat. Place on a 13x9" pan which you have sprayed with Pam.
Bake 10 minutes at 375F. Pour the melted butter over the pieces. Bake 30-40 minutes longer or until juices are clear. Nothing else to it and it was sooo crispy and tasty.
Its a rainy night here...I think I'll go and get changed and comfy and ready to watch American Idol.
Hope you have a lovely day... Judi xoxo
