Day 37

There was another cloudless blue sky today. I took this on CR 200 South, east of the National Guard Armory. It was another beautiful morning, and this barn stood out as a peaceful place.

Before I forget, here is the recipe for the dish I created for Cindy and myself last night:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces; approximately 1 Tbs. soy sauce; approximately 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce; 1 Tbs. minced garlic; one or two celery stalks, chopped; 1/4 red onion, chopped; salad greens (Romaine and iceberg lettuce, carrots, green bell pepper, radishes, etc.), salt, pepper, olive oil.

Marinate the chicken in the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, freshly ground pepper & salt to taste. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Coat the bottom of a frying pan with extra virgin olive oil and heat. When pan is hot, add the chicken-marinade mixture. Cover, stirring occasionally. While chicken is cooking, prepare plates with lettuce leaf (Romaine or iceberg), and cut and add the greens excepting celery and onion. Shortly before chicken is finished cooking, add the celery and onion to the frying pan. Continue to cook until the onion is translucent. Add the chicken, celery and onion to the top of the salad you have prepared. Cindy and I added ranch dressing and declared the food very good. However, the next time I cook this I am adding grapes to the salad greens.

This morning’s music was the Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah album Lake Shore Drive. I like the album despite the obvious drug reference in the title song and the explicit drug reference in the song Uppers And Downers. What drew me to the group in the first place was the song For Eddy which I heard originally on a compilation album (more about that some other time). Then only problem with this cd is that a number of the songs have obviously been copied from vinyl. There are hisses and pops in some of the cuts. The music is good enough that I can overlook this problem, but it would have been better if cleaner copies of the songs could have been found.
