Is This The Swedish Chef's Last Blog Appearance?
As you may know from the first two installments of the "Chef Boyar 'B'" series, the Swedish Chef is my culinary hero! The original Iron Chef! But after this, the third installment of my series, I am considering not bringing him back for future blogs. This may surprise some, but let's be real folks, dude is kind of a liability in the kitchen. He makes a big mess, I don't understand what he is saying, and he is a bit of a culinary diva. If you think I am wrong, and you would like to see the Chef make a return in the future, feel free to voice your opinions in the comment section. Thank you.
Now, on to the real "meat" of the blog. Get what I did there? I'm punny...
Yes, welcome to the third installment in the Chef Boyar 'B' blog series! You know what this means right? The Chef Boyar 'B' blog series joins some pretty elite company amongst the great trilogies of our time!
Who could ever forget the classic Godfather trilogy...
Then along came the fun trilogy, Back To The Future...
Who could ever forget the great trilogy...
Wait...what? Oh, for the love of Justin Bieber! Who ever gave the green light to make 3 Look Who's Talking Movies? Somebody got fired. Just sayin.
In my 'Cornucopia' blog the other day, I mentioned that I was going to give being a vegetarian a try. That starts on April 1st so until then, I will have some chicken and turkey and will share them with you in blog form.
My first thing this week is Crockpot Soy Honey Chicken.
cooking in the crockpot & after it was done
1 1/2 lb of chicken tenderloin, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 3/4 cup honey, 1TB olive oil, 1 tsp onion powder, 2 cloves garlic (minced), 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. Put frozen chicken in crockpot and poured the other ingredients (minced together) over the top. Cooked on low over night.
I also made some brown rice and combined the two. Let me tell you, this is THE BEST chicken dish I have made so far! SOOOOO GOOOOOOD!
Roasted Red Potatoes
Cut up 2 lbs of red potatoes. Microwave in water for 20 minutes to soften potatoes. Strain. Mix with olive oil, pepper, oregano, basil, onion powder, garlic powder, hot sauce, and a pinch of parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 60 minutes on 350.
These potatoes turned out really well! They had a lot of flavor. You could always leave out the hot sauce for something more mild.
Pineapple Angel Food Cake
So simple! Mix one box of angel food cake and one 20oz can of pineapple tidbits. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. NO FAT! REALLY GOOD! It is soft and full of flavor! A good alternative if you are really craving cake.
Pineapple Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothies
Blend pineapple, strawberries, coconut almond milk, vanilla greek yogurt, and oatmeal. Probably the second best smoothie I have made to the pineapple orange oatmeal smoothie. I will definitely make these again!
That was pretty much how I spent my Saturday night. In the kitchen, being creative! Could be worse, right? Had a great weekend, experimenting in the kitchen and embracing the possibilities! And don't forget about the fate of the Swedish Chef!
Good Day Sparkville!
