Just tested the fire alarm and it is working very, very well.
I picked up the "Everyday Food" from my shelf on a whim this morning and started browsing through and found a recipe for "Crispy Ginger-Lime Chicken Thighs". It required only 5 ingredients and looked simple enough to make so I gave it a try this evening.
Prepping? Easy. Cooking? Well, it would have been easy if the grease didn't start smoking so much and set off the fire alarm three times. Did you know I'm only 5'1"? Did you know I have a 9' ceiling? Do you know what it feels like jumping when you haven't done so in ages? And boy, alarm is super loud, I was pretty certain Dubya, Big Boy and Baby Girl, who were out for a walk at the time, could hear it from outside (but apparently they could not).
As for the recipe, I liked it, mainly because it was so easy to make and was quick.
