Thursday PotPourri...and... Captain Midnight...


Chicken Marsala.....

Movin be a recipe' for Chicken Marsala from my very good friend Susan Gertson from Eagle Lake, Texas.....

Chicken Marsala

Flour, salt & pepper
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp butter, separated
1 lb chicken
1 lb sliced mushrooms (I used baby portabellas)
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1 1/4 cups chicken stock
¾ cup. Marsala wine
2 Tbsp half-n-half

Lightly dredge cutlets in flour seasoned with salt and pepper.

Heat olive oil and a tablespoon of butter in pan to medium-high; add cutlets. Turn over when cutlet changes color one-quarter of way up and seared side is a golden brown. Flip and cook other side until browned. Transfer cutlets to clean plate and set aside.

Reduce heat to medium and add mushrooms, garlic and and a tablespoon of butter to pan, stirring occasionally, being careful the garlic doesn't burn. Cook about 3 min, until softened and browned. Stir in Marsala, stock, and half and half. Add cutlets; reduce heat to LOW.

Cook 6-7 min until cutlets are done (should have an internal temperature of 165 degrees F). If sauce is thin, continue cooking so that it may reduce, or add a bit of cornstarch to thicken. Transfer cutlets to clean serving platter and serve with sauce.

Adam said, "What's a River?"

God explained that To him, and then said, "Go over to the hill...."

Adam said, "What is a Hill?"

So, God explained to Adam what a hill was.

He told Adam, "On The other side of the Hill you will find a Cave."

Adam said, "What's a Cave?"

After God explained, He said, "In the cave You will find a woman."

Adam said, "What's a Woman?"

So God explained That to him, too.

Then, God said, "I Want you to Reproduce."

Adam said, "How do I do that?"

God first said (under His breath), "Geez....."

And then, just like Everything else, God Explained that to Adam, as well.

So, Adam goes down Into the valley,

Across the river, and
