Pink Saturday sponsored by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.
I thought I'd share our family's 4th of July celebration with you. There was no parade or fireworks this year for us. It was just too hot and humid. So hot and humid that we chose to have a cook-in rather than a cook-out.
One of our favorite recipes is Roast Sticky Chicken. I found this recipe online many, many years ago. I think it was sometime in the 1990's.
I just googled and this appears to be the exact same recipe that I use.
Mimi's Roast Sticky Chicken - as posted by Anieema
I do not care for salt and always omit salt from my recipes. I also don't bother rubbing on the spices and putting the chicken in a plastic bag overnight. I do it right before cooking. This time I doubled the recipe and used two chickens. It cooks for five hours and the smell is so good.
I like gravy with the chicken so I just use a package of Pioneer Gravy Mix and add in some of the juices from the pan for a little extra flavor.
Nabisco Chocolate Wafer Cake again. We had just made it a month before for Keith's birthday and wanted it again. The recipe is right on the box.
We also made S'more Cups. Another big favorite with my family. The recipe can be found on Coleen's Recipe blog.
I enjoy Coleen's recipes and a few weeks ago someone notified her that someone else had taken over 300 recipes from her blog and put them up on a blog as their own. You can read about it here. Why would someone do that? I was afraid Coleen might stop posting recipes, but she hasn't.
Everyone enjoyed our untraditional 4th of July meal.
I should have gotten these photos up sooner, but I've been busy lately...
Now head over to Beverly's blog for a list of this week's Pink Saturday participants. Thanks for visiting...
