香脆烤雞腿肉 Oven-baked Chicken thighs

香烤雞配馬鈴薯和沙拉 Oven baked Chicken, served with  roasted potatoes and arugula salad 

久不久,我們便想吃炸雞。不過,我們知道炸雞很不健康,也要用上很多油,所以我們都不會在家中煮。如果要吃,我們一般都在外面吃。可是在外面吃,不但油多,而且在美國的炸雞常常會被蓋上一層很厚的粉,吃起來乾乾的,我通常吃完又膩又後悔。如果想吃炸雞,但又不想吃進一大堆油和負擔,以下這個食譜可能會幫到你。

我們家中有一堆吃不完的面包,每包都只有一兩片,零零碎碎的,通常都會被Honey K在壞掉前放入冰箱,他說這樣變不會放霉,而這也是事實。我不喜歡吃冰過的面包,所以只好把他們變成而烤麵包粒 (Croutons) ,把它們碎掉成麵包屑 (Breadcrumbs)後,便可以拿去包著雞肉。


Croutons 烤麵包粒

平日做的烤麵包粒可放西湯或沙拉。

材料 Ingredients﹕

1. 剩下來的麵包
Stale Bread (I used 2 garlic bread stick from Olive Garden, 2 high fiber bread from Harvest Moon and 2 very small slices of sourdough from Panera. Honey K loves bread!)

3. 鹽和黑胡椒粉 Salt & Pepper
*4. 香草粉 Dried Basil/ Oregano/ Thyme (whatever you have in the pantry)
*5. 蒜粉 Garlic Powder 

*Optional Ingredients
可有可無的材料。沒有的話,只是會少了一些香料的味道,但是口感還是一樣的脆。
Skip the herbs if you don't have them handy. You will only miss some fragrance from the herbs. It will still taste crispy.

做法 Procedures﹕

1. 首先把烤箱預熱350度。
Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. 預備麵包,把它們切粒狀 (約1 x 1 cm)。

Put them into the oven, bake for 10 to 15 minutes until golden. Do not over bake them. 
5. 拿出來冷卻。
Take them out and cool down.
家中有三種不一樣的麵包 (High Fiber Bread, Garlic bread, Sourdough),它們放上有一個月了。

把你家中有的麵包切成小粒 These are what we have at home. 


加入適量的橄欖油、香草(Basil, Oregano or thyme) 、蒜粉、鹽和黑胡椒粉
Depending on how much of bread you have, coat them with a decent amount of olive oil, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

天然洗潔精 Simple Homemade Natural Dish Soap



我們上星期到過了芝加哥的綠色節 (Green Festival)學到了很多綠色生活的方法,恰巧昨晚看了Epic,故事其中的名句﹕ "Many Leaves. One Tree" 讓我覺得我們和大自然的關係更接近。今天,我決定立刻自製天然的洗潔精,減少吃進化學物和生產廢物。

We went to the Green Festival in Chicago last week and we loved it. We learned many ways to lead a green life. Incidentally, we watched Epic last night and we were really inspired by the concept "Many Leaves. One Tree." We are all interconnected and we need to learn to live sustainable manner. I decided to wait no more (or procrastinate no more). I made my first homemade dish soap with a few ingredients this afternoon within 5 minutes.

天然洗潔精的做法Simple Homemade Natural Dish Soap

5-10分鐘 (including your material gathering time at home)

材料 Ingredients﹕
橄欖香皂 1杯 (Pure Castile Soap 1 cup)
橄欖香皂 1杯 (Pure Castile Soap 1 cup)

方法 Procedure﹕

1. 這個洗潔精做法很簡單,我首先拿了一個舊的玻璃水瓶,用水洗過後備用。你可以用不同的瓶或以前用過的洗潔精瓶子
Clean a used bottle with water. Rinse it well. I used a glass bottle from Kevita. I removed the label around the bottle without using much energy. It was easily peeled. You can use any kind of bottle as long as you find it easy to use. 


2. 把液體橄欖香皂加入空瓶中,然後加入清水。

Pour liquid castile soup into the emptied bottle. [1 part of soap, 2 parts of water]

Add in vinegar/lemon juice and 10 drops of tea tree oil. Its basically done. 
完成。That is it! Our first homemade natural dish soap!  

這真的是一個十分簡易的方法,不但可以吃少一點化學物,更可以廢物利用。告訴我們你們覺得這個洗潔精怎樣,我們還在研究當中。
This is one simple efficient recipe. Effectiveness? Tell me what you think. We are still in the process of experimenting with this.
