If you know that quote, I like you :)
I felt a little like Buddy the Elf while making dinner tonight.
2 of our dinner dishes included maple syrup.
For dinner tonight, we had Maple-Mustard Chicken and Israeli Couscous with Apples, Cranberries and Herbs (with a maple dressing).
The chicken was easy.
I thawed some chicken thighs today and just coated them with a mix of maple syrup + honey + whole grain mustard + dijon mustard + salt + pepper + garlic.
I spread the mustard mix on the chicken and baked them at 375 for about 45 minutes.
This couscous dish was awesome! One of the best couscous recipes I’ve ever made, hands down.
We love Israeli couscous – it’s like little doughy pillows and is even better mixed with diced apple, cranberries, almonds, and a maple + apple cider vinegar dressing.
No snack this afternoon – I had a crazy day with work, and not a “good crazy”. I just didn’t even think about a snack until the workday was over, and then I didn’t want to ruin my appetite.
I’m thinking that some of the last of my Mammaw’s fudge + some hot tea will be my snack tonight :)
Football starts now!
