Chocolate Chip Cookies...fromabox.

I bought a new camera recently. It is my new favorite toy.

So, today I made about 4 doz chocolate chip cookies. From a box. A Duncan Hines box.
Whatev...I'm not ashamed.

Look how pretty and yummy!

That is all. No recipe. No anything.

Just a new camera and some calories.

Dear Mr. Yoshida....I love you.

OK, so I've had a package of chicken drumsticks in the freezer for about 6 weeks now. I love chicken. I love to BBQ chicken, but for some reason I just couldn't work up the desire to eat these dang things.

BUT...I recently discover this ahhhhmazing bottle of goodness called
Mr. Yoshida's Marinade & Cooking Sauce. It's at Costco..not sure where else.

Oh. My. Gosh.

It's pretty much a teriyaki sauce, but not. I don't know what to call it other than delightful. So anyway, on the bottle it says to mix 1/2 cup of it with 3 Tbsps of peanut butter and you'll magically have a Thai peanut sauce. So I did. And I am SO glad that I did.

For dinner last night I made the drumsticks. Salt & peppered them and threw them on the grill for about 25 minutes. The last 5-8ish minutes I slathered them in the peanut concoction. Then I sauteed up some zucchini, yellow squash & garlic in a little more of the sauce. Added some brown rice to the plates and it was ready.

Nothing crazy. The flavor was SO dang good though. It was a nice detour from the old BBQ sauced up grilled chicken.

If you can find the sauce, GET it.
