Butter Chicken

I thought I would share on of our favorite Indian food recipes. This is more North Indian and my husband is from the South but it's still one of our favorites. I usually make this if we have company for dinner who has never had Indian food... most people really like it!

1) mix...
4 chicken breasts, cut up in small cubes
2 tsp. chili powder (more if you like it spicy!)
2 tsp. turmeric
2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
Combine above ingredients and let marinate up to 24 hours (I usually let is sit while I do the next step)

3 large onions, diced
2 cloves garlic, grated (or garlic paste)
1" piece skinned, grated ginger (or ginger paste)
4 Tblsp tomato paste (or one tomato cut up into small pieces)

2) Chop the onions to a small, uniform size.

3) In a large skillet heat enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan on med-high heat.
When oil is HOT place onions in the pan, sprinkle with salt  and cook until translucent. You may need to turn the heat down a bit to keep from burning the onions.

4) Add garlic and ginger.
Cook for about 3 more minutes, stirring often.

5) Add tomato paste or tomato.

6) After about 10 minutes (oil should start to form around the edge of the pan)

Add the chicken mixture and about 1- 1.5 cups of water. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is done. The onions will cook down into a paste.

7) Add 1 tsp. Graham massala and 1 cup heavy whipping cream. Simmer for another 10-15 minutes.

Serve with Naan (flat bread) and/or Basmathi rice.

Naps and Napping ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz......

I am at a loss for creative ways to implement nap time. Evelynn and Elizabeth stopped taking naps at 2 (pretty much when they figured out how to get out of their cribs... little monkeys). Nathan will occasionally nap but not every day. I NEED them to have some kind of nap/rest/quiet time. The girls play together and keep each other awake if they are both in the same room. I have been putting one in my bed and the other in their own bed and they will occasionally succumb to sweet, quiet sleep. Hoping this sticks!
Any suggestions?

Lazy Day

photo credit here

We sure have had a lazy Saturday around here. I got up with the kiddos this morning. When my husband finally rolled out of bed we sat around for awhile, I remarked about how tired I was and he suggested I take a nap. That is EXACTLY what I did... for three hours! We tag-teamed again and he headed back for a few winks. Now he's off to the gym while I dress/feed/entertain/chase around our littles until my parents come over and then it's date night! Whew! Just about the pace we like on a cold Saturday.

I had better go get ready for our date! (we're cheap, our favorite place? Barnes and Nobel!)

What do YOU do on lazy Saturdays?

Saturday, January 15, 2011


I really don't feel like I can start my day with out a cup (or three!!) of coffee. I like mine strong, hot, creamy and sweet.

How do you like your coffee?
