Yeah, I really need a new camera. Anyone got a hundred-ish dollars I can have?
Anyway! Today, a nice fall offering of chicken stewed with apples and onions, done thusly:
Put potatoes on to boil. Put onions and a peeled, chopped apple or two, and a chunk of slivered cabbage on medium heat and cook up with some olive oil. Add the chunked chicken-- this was two large breasts, somewhere around two pounds. Add a half cup of apple sauce and a half cup of apple butter, salt and pepper, a little butter, and some red wine vinegar. Stew it all until it's cooked way down and the chicken is cooked all the way through. It'll be something like a chunky applesauce, and never really thickens up into a gravy, and should be tart and sweet and spicy. Serve with the mashed potatoes.
We've made this all together in a crockpot with a pork shoulder, and it's lovely that way, too.
You've found me! Assuming, of course, that you're looking for the short, usually-redheaded, tea-drinking, cat-loving, alternatively-spiritual, attempted-optimist who writes fantasy, science fiction and various acts of academia.
