Whats for Dinner?

o I am always trying to figure out what to cook since I really don’t like cooking during the summer months. Its to hot, and I feel like a slave in the kitchen sweating and what not. I figure I go with the basics; chicken, potatoes, green beans, cornbread and lemonade.

So for the past day couple of days I have had some chicken wings marinating in a concoction of honey, balsamic vinegar, hot sauce, marjoram, thyme, rosemary sea slat and black pepper. It smelled so good when I opened the lid. I decided to throw them in the crock pot. I sprayed the pot than placed red potatoes at the bottom and then placed the wings on top. Put it on high and in about two and a half hours I will check the chicken and then poor some bbq sauce in there. I will probably make a pot of rice as well. My mother gave me her rice cooker as she as about 12 of those things around the house.

I made lemonade this morning and will make the cornbread later on when the Mr arrives.

Right now I have the sauce from the wings and the shrimp mixed together and in the fridge. I am thawing out some steak and short beef ribs, and going to marinate the steak in the sauce and come up with a rub for the ribs.

I really need a few more crock pots. It is so easy to put dinner on in the morning and only have to clean up one dish.
