Favorite Recipe... Friday Blog Hop

THEME this week is Favorite Recipe. 

Last summer my hubby and I were going to try new recipes on Mondays which is his day off, we did it only a couple weeks but I did find my favorite recipe to make.  I think hubby and I will have to start this again.  


1/4 c. butter (scant)
1. c. chopped carrots
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. coarsely chopped green pepper (sometimes i use red, yellow, or orange peppers)
3/4 c. catsup
2 tbsp. vinegar
1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 c. pineapple chunks, drained
1 (3 lb.) chicken breast, cut up

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In medium skillet, heat butter until melted, add carrots, onion and green pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stirring.2. Stir in catsup, pineapple juice, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and ginger. Cook, stirring constantly until mixture boils. Remove from stove, add pineapple chunks.
3. Arrange chicken pieces in 9"x13"x2" baking pan. Pour sweet 'n sour sauce over all. Bake, covered about 45 minutes, uncover and bake about 30 minutes longer.

Make sure you cut the carrots small or they will not cook well.  Sometimes I also add more pineapple to make it sweeter.  My husband adds more red pepper to make his have more kick.  I also make white rice and then pour this on top of it!  SO YUMMY!!!  

Sorry I no picture to show you the yummy creation!  TRUST me... it might sound like a lot of steps but is very simple!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
