Meeting New Fun People

Side note: I am going to start posting more fun ideas, recipes, people I might along the way on my business blog so stay tuned! I am making my personal blog go private February 1st so if you are following that blog through facebook, be sure to follow it on my actual blog so I can invite you to view!

While on Good Things Utah, I think the guests on the show with me where the cutest ever! When I came to the sign up desk, I was excited to see a familiar name on the roster! Lindsay Clements was scheduled to be the cooking segment! She is a member of my autoship club! Her blog is really fun to read. Her husband (can you believe her husband cooks with her!) do a blog. You should check it out. It has lots of fun recipes! Yesterday, they made the chicken wings and I didn't get a taste, but it sure smelled yummy! Here is the recipe:
Ingredients:
Marinara Sauce (see our recipe or use your own)
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tblsp chopped capers
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried basil
salt and pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese finely grated
1 package of chicken wings
1 can evaporated milk
1 egg
Oil for fryingFirst and foremost, if not done, separate the wings and drumsticks with a knife. In a large container mix together the evaporated milk and egg. Marinate the chicken in then in the container, covered in the fridge for as long as you have. The longer the better. In a sauce pan, heat up your marinara sauce with the wine and capers and bring to a boil until thick. Reduce heat and let simmer. Bring your oil up to temperature in a large pot. (375 degrees). Also preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Take the chicken from the marinade, and place in the flour. Toss until all covered. Put into the oil and let fry, turning once or twice, until golden brown. Be sure to keep the temperature at the proper level the entire time. Strain the chicken on a paper towel. Put on a baking sheet and put into the oven for 5 minutes (just to be sure they are done)Serve with the marinara on the side. This is a keeper for sure.


I met (for the first time) another fun gal. Krista Maurer did a demonstration on home decor. She is opening a cute boutique and does design services. So fun!


Last but not least, there was a lady there that demonstrated Smart art. I can't remember her blog, but she does fun activities you can do for kids. She demonstrated how to make play dough out of shampoo. Did you know I HATE play dough? I don't know what it is. But, the smell, texture, all of it makes me literally throw up! I am going to try out her recipe though...


Shampoo Dough
3/4 c flour
1/4 c white glue
1/4 c thick shampoo

Mix all ingredients in a bowl Knead dough Add more flour, as needed. Model or roll and cut as desired. Air dry Paint as desired.We made up a batch and shaped little hearts, then put a toothpick in the top. When they dry and are painted, you have little Valentine pendants to string onto a necklace! You can shape the hearts by hand, or use a cookie cutter.
