Sundays. What to do to celebrate on a Sunday?
Well folks, today is Justin and my 6th month anniversary since we’ve been married! Yaaay!
|This is probably our most awkward picture. The photographer loved the leaning in pictures. But the whole time we were giggling as she kept yelling, “Stick your butt out Justin!”|
So, if you are Mormon, here is a list of how to celebrate a 6th month anniversary that happens to fall on a Sunday:
1) Wake up without any alarms and cuddle in bed.
2) Homemade Cinnamon French Toast for breakfast.
3) Homemade brownies for a mid-morning snack.
4) Watch SNL, followed by Hunchback of Notre Dame.
5) More cuddling.
6) More brownies.
7) Go to Testimony Meeting at church.
8) Come home (with an upset stomach–not recommended for optimum celebration) and take a nap while cuddling (definitely recommended)
9) Watch the Super Bowl while making/eating homemade tempura chicken and veggies.
10) Wish we hadn’t eaten all the brownies all ready
11) More cuddling
|Justin was definitely excited about dinner while watching the Super Bowl|
Here is how I made the tempura:
1 cup flour
3/4 cup corn starch
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
water–enough to make it a paste
Mix it all together–it makes a lot. Cut the amount of veggies and chicken you want. We used 2 tenderloins of chicken, green and red peppers, zucchini, carrots, and onions. Dip them in the tempura batter and put it in a pan of hot oil. Turn it over and take out once its a crispy, golden-brown.
Now, Justin will explain how he made a very delicious teriyaki sauce.
So, its real simple, and as usual, I am terrible at giving exact measurements, so you’ll hafta deal with approximates.
The base is soy sauce, so you’ll want as much soy sauce as you want teriyaki sauce. Put it in a sauce pot on low heat. Add a couple of squirts of lemon juice, and if you like your sauce hotter, some squirts of Sriracha sauce. Stir. Add a few tablespoons of brown sugar into the mix until it dissolves. Add according to taste. Once its well dissolved, take off of heat and pour over food. Its a very thin sauce, and rather potent.
