Dinner: Tuesday, January 6

BBQ Chicken with Black Bean BBQ Sauce
Coriander Carrot Slaw
Cast Iron Sourdough Loaf
Total Cost: $6.20

The BBQ Chicken is cooked with a simple black bean BBQ sauce. Reserve some sauce for after the chicken is done cooking and spoon it over the top of the cooked chicken. To make the BBQ sauce, just drain and rinse a can of black beans and blend in the blender with two cloves garlic, a half cup of BBQ sauce, a little sugar, a little vinegar, a little water and a lotta love.

For the Coriander Carrot Slaw, shred a couple carrots along with half an apple. Add a couple Tbs. of mayonnaise, along with a couple Tbs. of sugar and a sprinkle of coriander. Add a handful of chopped walnuts. Squeeze a section of lemon over the whole dish and serve.

Again, I'm finding another use for the dough recipe found in "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day." You can throw this loaf together in under five minutes. Preheat the cast iron skillet and throw in the dough that has rested for 40 minutes. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Serve with honey and butter. And please don't slice this bread like a sissy. Rip chunks of it off and slather that butter on.

This dinner makes me beam with cowgirl pride.


  1. Yeehaw. You go cowgirl! I am going to try that BBQ sauce. Oh ya, and Pictures. I need pictures. Something that sounds this good has got to look great.

  2. I'm loving all of your recipes! Keep them coming.

  3. The 'Cast Iron Sourdough Loaf' sounds really good. Do you have a recipe for the dough and cooking instructions?
