Do I hear an amen?
I'm thinking that my energy is solar-powered. When daylight is short, I find that I have less energy. As the daylight lasts longer, I have the energy to come and swim laps, tidy the house, and cook. I remember when my son was young, and I was driving him to baseball or golf practice-- that I could hardly wait for him to get his license and I'd have more time to myself. Now that he's a grown adult, has his own car and job, I still find that time flies by much too fast. Yikes, I'm starting to sound like my own mother!
I so love my food blog, as my creative outlet, and I have missed not being able to find time to edit some of the desserts, breads and savory meals I've made, over the last few weeks. I spent this whole weekend in a classroom, taking job-related classes, and haven't been home for very long. Before I go to bed, I wanted to share this very fast recipe because I've been making a lot of those lately. After all, I much prefer a home cooked meal over take-home.
food.com and found a recipe that listed all the ingredients that I had on hand. I didn't really plan on photographing the recipe steps, but once I tasted the sauce-- I grabbed my camera and knew that I had to share it. I'll make it again, as it did the trick!
TASTING NOTES: The sauce is thick and flavorful, and I'll never buy bottled teriyaki sauce again. I've bookmarked more authentic teriyaki sauce recipes that uses mirin and fresh ginger, so that I can have a comparison. But, when that craving hits, this is a fool-proof and easy sauce worth trying. Neither my son nor husband likes grilled pineapple. I love it, and I didn't mind that the brown sugar had caramelized. (They have no idea what they're missing out on.)
