Week 37 Thursday (9/25/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Oven Roasted BBQ Chicken Thighs
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 255 calories per thigh.  (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I had already made baked chicken thighs,
 and then I added this wonderful sauce

         I love dark chicken and turkey meat. I always have thought that they are much more flavorful than the white meat. I was thrilled to make this recipe because I always seem to be using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, so this was a treat. The sauce is really good. I would never have thought of mixing BBQ sauce and peach preserves, but I really love the flavors. This is a really nice change from boring old chicken.

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden 
Happy return daylilies yellow and gold

The yellow daylilies are a great border
to the trellis filled with Mandevillas

These are the yellow version in front of my trellis

The gold version is just beautiful, too.
       Daylilies are a staple in most gardens because they are easy to grow and are quite hardy. I have one section of my yard with the gold version and a separate section with the bright yellow ones.
         I have never had any problem with bugs and daylilies. They seem to be fine no matter what the weather, also.

The tag said:        
 They can grow anywhere in between 1 to 5 feet tall. (Mine are usually around a foot tall.
They spread between 2 to 8 inches.
My daylilies are about five years old and they are quite thick and beautiful. I do mulch around them to help retain moisture to avoid having to water.
My gold daylilies form a border into the trellis area. It looks really nice. The gold flowers are in full sun.
The others are in a flower bed that borders that back of the house. This bed is in light shade.
The best time to print them is in the early fall or early spring.
Plant them about 18 – 24 inches apart. This will allow them to spread and thicken.
You do need to water the plants more until they are established.
In the first and second year, the plants need to be watered more frequently than they will later.

Irksome Ideas and Images

If you have ever spent time with a Middle School age child you have heard an overuse of the word “like.”  When I taught at Wredling, I fell into the “like” trap. I heard it so often during the day that I caught myself using it a lot. This was a really annoying habit that I am glad I have overcome. I mean like, I don’t like, use it often anymore.
