What’s Sunday Brunch Really & Strawberries

What’s Sunday Brunch Really & Strawberries

Good Afternoon, I’m just sitting here with the family chating about world issues such as the value we place on unimportant and irrelevant things. While also watching these two squirrels chase each other up and down the tree, which is a regular occurrence in our yard. So we’re having our regular Sunday brunch and the meal wasn’t as plentiful on this day however that’s no reason to cancel for it’s not about the food it’s about coming together spending time and being thankful; like Thanksgiving. Yes I said Thanksgiving; why should it only be one day a year. Just think about it for a minute. Wow makes since huh.
So what was on the menu you say? Strawberry muffins, scrambled eggs, smoked turkey sausage and coffee for the grown & sexy, lol as well as chocolate milk for the wee little ones. We had to wait extra long for my honey as he is the head since he injured his foot hooping out the youngsters at the basketball court.
All in all its been a great mid morning with the family. My eldest son came in the kitchen to help make the whip cream while I finished the eggs. Note if your mouth is watering for Strawberry muffins the recipe is below.

Honey Mustard Chicken

Honey Mustard Chicken

Today was nice as we made a trip to the Children’s Museum which is always a fun place for the children. We joined another daycare on our visit today. Thought they’d like a trip it being the day before the holiday weekend.

I love the cow you can actually milk it, fun huh! Well after spending the day here I needed a quick fix for dinner and 3 ingredients was just what I needed.

•Chicken
•Nature’s Seasons
•Honey Mustard
Now this recipe as you see doesn’t have exact measurements. So pay attention, lol.
1) Place chicken in pan( I use stoneware as I love how it cooks).
2) lightly sprinkle both sides with seasoning.
3) Now generously squeeze or pour honey mustard so it covers chicken.

4) Cover with lid or foil and bake on 400° for 1-2 hours depending on your pan and oven.
So you see a very simple recipe as well as tasty. It’s a family favorite in my house. Hope you enjoy as always it’s been Dlish dishing with y’all.
