Candle Roasted Marshmallows

Leave a comment

Last night was Oven Fried Chicken, pretty healthy, and French Onion Potatoes, undoing all the good the chicken did. At least it was a balanced meal at that rate.
We added a generous slice of the rosemary bread, just because it was there, and sat down to a tasty meal. Later on we toasted marshmallows on skewers over a candle and discovered that Mr Fussypants enjoys marshmallows but doesn’t like the melted ones sticking in his fur much.

Oven Fried Chicken
Serves 3

6 Chicken Drumsticks
1 tsp salt
1 clove garlic
2 tsps curry powder
2 tsps worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 cup boiling water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/4 tsp dry mustard with 1 tb water
1 tsp oregano
2-3 dashes tobasco sauce

Preheat oven to 180C.
Place chicken in shallow baking dish.
Mix remaining ingredients and brush chicken with mixture.
(I marinated it for a couple of hours)
Bake for about 45 minutes, basting often. Bake
until tender. Change oven temperature to 200 for about
10 minutes or broil 5 minutes until lightly browned.

French Onion Potatoes
Serves 4

8 potatoes
300ml cream
1 pkt dried french onion soup

Quarter your potatoes. If they are large quarters,
you might like to chop them in half again.
Put them into a greased baking dish in one layer,
and pour cream over the top.
Then sprinkle a packet of french onion soup mix evenly
over that.
Bake at 180 degrees in a fan forced oven for approximately 1
hour. If your oven is not fan-forced, it may need to be an hour
and a half.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
