bla, bla, bla

It's a sunny morning here today. It's seems like days since we've had any sun. Still cold, currently 20 out. But the sun will make it feel warmer.
I did accomplish a couple of things yesterday. We use to have a big oak entertainment center. But when the 27 in TV died, we decided to upgrade to a 32" LCD TV. Well, it wouldn't fit in the entertainment center, so we got rid of that, and searched for a TV stand. It took a long time, and we never did find anything we liked. So we ended up using this
fake electric fire place that we use in the winter to warm the TV room without having to turn up the thermostat for the whole house. Then we needed to get a cabinet of some sort for all our DVDs and VHS tapes. We found this 2 door unit that fits perfectly.
We put window film on the top door to conceal the tapes. I think it looks pretty good. So yesterday, Craig and I sorted through all our movies deciding what to keep, and what to toss.

Then we made a new chicken dish. Teriaki Chicken.
It was so good, I'm sharing the easy recipe with you.

INGREDIENTS 1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
12 skinless chicken thighs

DIRECTIONS
In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the cornstarch, cold water, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and ground black pepper.
Let simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Place chicken pieces in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.
Brush chicken with the sauce. Turn pieces over, and brush again.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn pieces over, and bake for another 30 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Brush with sauce every 10 minutes during cooking.

Now we used split chicken breasts instead of thighs and it was Yummy!
That's all I got this morning! Later!
