Cooking With The Kids #3 - Chicken Drumsticks with BBQ Sauce








It's been a busy few weeks, what with the school holidays and everything. For some reason I had convinced myself there would be loads of time to do cooking with the kids 2-3 times a week. I was kidding myself! With trips away, day trips, and me working almost every day in between to pay for it all there's been hardly any time to cook WITH them (more a case of quickly whip something together before they start eating the furniture!)

BUT! I've managed to do SOME! Tom chose Chicken Drumsticks! Which luckily is a nice a quick meal without too much fuss. Perfect for a hungry 3 year old (and his brothers)

Chicken Drumsticks with BBQ Sauce

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cooking Time: 30 mins

Ingredients


8 Chicken Drumsticks
Oil
Salt & Pepper
1 tsbp Paprika
4 tbsp Lemon Juice

Sauce:

4 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
4 tbsp Soy Sauce
5 tbsp Ketchup
2 tbsp Soft Brown Sugar
1 tsp English Mustard Powder
1 tsp Paprika
1 pinch Crushed Chillis
Salt & Pepper

Method

Pre heat the oven to GM 7 / 200c / 400f
Add oil to a roasting tin and heat in the oven
Once hot, add the chicken (be careful of spitting)
Sprinkle over salt & pepper, paprika and lemon juice
Put in oven for 30mins or till juices run clean
Meantime, mix all the sauce ingredients together, mixing well.
It is a good idea to taste the sauce as you go and
alter it according to personal taste, hotter, sweeter etc.

Serve the hot chicken with the sauce on the side.

We also made potato wedges, and Tom heated up a tin of 
peas and carrots to serve with it.

The kids LOVED it, and their only complaint was that we didn't make enough!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
