    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers."

a week of valentines: heart-y meal

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetHey guys!

Call me crazy, but with Valentine’s Day coming up, I’m thinking that you’re probably going to be sharing a meal with your loved one. Why not make it a delectable homemade dinner? After all, they say that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Or gifts. Wait, the latter may just be pour moi. ;-)))

This meal is guaranteed to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. It’s also perfectly filling for those chilly February evenings. I made this Chicken recipe just after we moved into our new home and before we had gone on our first grocery trip. I had chicken in the freezer, a box of half-opened Shake’n Bake, potatoes that had seen better days, and frozen corn in the freezer. What I also had were a ton of spices. I thought, I can make something out of this. 

This is how I worked my magic:

Chicken

1. Turn the oven to 375°F. In a bowl, combine chicken wings, oil, salt, pepper, and Shake’n Bake. Adequately cover each wing with mixture. Place on a baking sheet and cover with tin foil. 

2. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until wings are golden.

Mashed Potatoes

1. Bring water and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Turn down to medium-high heat.

2. Peel the skins off of the potatoes. Cut them into chunks and put them in the boiling water. Cook until a fork can easily pierce through the potatoes. Drain the water from the pan.

3. Add milk, butter, pepper, and dill to the potatoes. Mash until creamy. Add more spices to taste.

Corn

1. Bring water and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Turn down to medium-high heat.

2. Add frozen corn to the water. Cook for approximately 5-10 minutes. Drain.

3. Add butter and pepper to the corn. 

Don’t be surprised if you have to beat your significant other off with a love stick after they taste this Valentine’s Day feast! Just chalk all of those kisses up to another HSB win.

    • I realize that it should probably be a little more complicated and perhaps a little classier for Valentine’s Day, but hey, I like simple and delicious things.

      Thanks for the comment!
