Today Will came home from his Cruise on the St-Lawrence River which took him to France and back, yes France is a lot closer to Canada than most people think.

So I tried this new recipe for Chicken with a garlic sauce and it was wonderful. Here it is for you all;


1/2 cup butter 3 tablespoons minced garlic 1 tablespoons soy sauce 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1 tablespoon dried parsley 6 boneless chicken thighs with skin or drumsticks whichever you like. I mixed it all up with good results.

Pre-heat the oven to 375 F. so it is hot when you need it. Lightly grease a baking pan.

In a microwave safe bowl, mix the butter, garlic, soy sauce, pepper, and parsley. Cook 2 minutes on High in the microwave, or until butter is melted. Take out and with a spoon stir well.

Arrange chicken in the baking pan, and coat with the butter mixture.

Cook chicken 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until juices run clear, turning occasionally. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.

I made a green salad to accompany the dish. It was really good.

After dinner we went on our balcony which faces South and looked up to see the Moon slowly disappear and turn dark orange. I could not remember when I had last seen an eclipse, but it has been decades. How beautiful it was to see this eclipse and realize that we live on this little planet and we are part of a vast Universe. Wonderful!
