The hubby and I went out on the town on Friday evening. We went for dinner to a new restaurant, where I ordered the Bee Bim Bop with a side of kimchi.
We then went to "The Adjustment Bureau", which was decent, but not great.
Have you seen this movie? Do you want to?
I hopped out of bed on Saturday morning at 7:50 with boundless energy! I made some tropical oatmeal for breakfast while the husband slept on.
My sister and I went shoe shopping Saturday afternoon to look for bridesmaid shoes for her wedding.
I love them, and am so excited to wear them!!
Lunch was French onion soup, and for dinner we picked up subs. I had a turkey sub loaded with veggies and honey mustard.
This evening I made a wonderful (and easy) dinner that I will definitely be making again.
White Wine Coq Au Vin
5 T flour
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried basil
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper (plus more to taste)
6 chicken thighs (chopped into bite size pieces)
5 slices bacon (chopped)
2 cups chopped potatoes
3 chopped carrots
3 chopped stocks of celery
1 chopped onion
2 cups chicken broth
1 1/3 cup dry white wine
Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Toss the chicken in the flour mixture. Cook the chopped bacon in a small stock pot until done. Remove and set aside. Cook the floured chicken in the bacon fat for approx. 6 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside. Throw onions, carrots, potatoes and celery in the pot and cook until onions are translucent (deglaze with a bit of the chicken broth if sticking/ or add oil). Add broth and wine and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for about 20 minutes or desired thickness. Season to taste.
This would be perfect with some crusty bread.
It was warm, comforting, and very easy for a quick Monday dinner.
Have you ever had/made coq au vin? With red or white wine?
How was your weekend? What was the highlight?
