Today’s Lunch: Grilled Sesame Chicken Mid-Joints

Pag gumagawa ako ng Chicken Lollipop (http://www.maruism.com/2011/09/08/chicken-lollipop/) mula sa pakpak na parte ng manok, yung mid-joints nya ay kadalasan ganito ang ginagawa ko. Kung manginginom ako, parang gusto ko ang ganitong pulutan kasi mahilig ako pumapak ng mid-joints ng chicken wings dahil sa buto-buto nya.

            May ugali akong mahilig magre-arrange ng mga kagamitan sa bahay. Sa kalilipat ko ng mga muwebles ko (naks! kung maka-muwebles si Mamaru eh parang mayaman) sa kwarto noong weekend, eto ang mga napala ko.

            Ang SUKA ay hindi lang para panimpla sa lutuin. Mula noong napag-alaman ko na ang daming paggagamitan ng SUKA sa bahay, litro-litro na kung bumili ako ng SUKA. Yung sukang-puti po.

            Specifically, inihahalo ko rin ang SUKA para sa mga sumusunod na mga homemade ek-ek ko:

            1. ALL-PURPOSE CLEANER

            • 16oz spray bottle

            • 3 tbsp liquid soap
            • 4 T White Vinegar
            • Water

            Ang dali kong nalilinis ang kalan at kitchen top namin pag ginagamitan ko ng cleanser na ‘to. Pang linis ko din ‘to ng mirror sa may dining area at sa mga salamin sa bintana namin.

            2. HOMEMADE DOG SHAMPOO

            3. FURNITURE SPRAY POLISH

            • ½ tsp. olive oil
            • ¼ c. vinegar or lemon juice

            At eto pa ang 45 USES FOR VINEGAR: 

            1. Freshen up the fridge. Clean the shelves and walls with a solution of half water and half vinegar. 

            2. Brighten coffee cups and teacups. Gently scrub stains with equal parts vinegar and salt (or baking soda).

            3. Eliminate odors. Swab plastic containers with a cloth dampened with vinegar.

            4. Kill bathroom germs. Spray full-strength vinegar around the sink and tub. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

            5. Save a garment. To remove light scorch marks on fabrics, rub gently with vinegar. Wipe with a clean cloth. This technique also works on antiperspirant stains.

            6. Tidy up a toilet. Pour a cup or more of diluted white distilled vinegar into the bowl. Let sit several hours or overnight. Scrub well with a toilet brush and flush.

            7. Lose the carpet stain. Make a paste of 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar and ¼ cup salt or baking soda. Rub into the stain and let dry. Vacuum the residue the next day. (Always test an out-of-sight part of the carpet first.)

            8. Renew paint brushes. To remove old paint, place brushes in a pot with vinegar. Soak for an hour, then turn on the stove and bring the vinegar to a simmer. Drain and rinse clean.

            9. Wipe off a dirty faucet. To get rid of lime buildup, make a paste of 1 teaspoon vinegar and 2 tablespoons salt. Apply to sink fixtures and rub with a cloth.

            10. Stop static cling. Add ½ cup of white distilled vinegar to your wash cycle. The acid reduces static and keeps dryer lint from sticking to your clothes.

            11. Make old socks look new. Get the stains out of old socks and sweaty gym clothes by soaking them in a vinegar solution. Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to a large pot of water, bring to a boil and drop in the stained clothes. Let them soak overnight, and in the morning stained clothes are fresh and bright.

            12. Restore handbags and shoes. Wipe white distilled vinegar on scuffed leather bags and shoes. It will restore their shine and help hide the marks.

            13. Banish weeds. Pour white distilled vinegar on the weeds growing in the cracks of your walkway and driveway. Saturate the plant so the vinegar reaches the roots.

            14. Liven droopy flowers. Don’t throw out cut flowers once they start to wilt. Instead, add two tablespoons of white vinegar and one teaspoon of sugar to a quart of water. Pour the solution into your vase, and the flowers will perk up.

            15. Put an end to itching. Dab a cotton ball soaked in white vinegar on mosquito bites and insect stings. It will stop them from itching and help disinfect the area so they heal faster.

            16. Whiten your teeth. Brush your teeth once a week with white distilled vinegar. Dip your toothbrush into the vinegar and brush thoroughly. It will help prevent bad breath, too.

            17. Make nail polish last longer. Before you apply your favorite polish, wipe your nails with a cotton ball soaked in white distilled vinegar. The clean surface will help your manicure last.

            18. Keep car windows frost-free. Prevent windows from frosting over in a storm by coating them with a solution of three parts white distilled vinegar to one part water. The acidity hinders ice, so you won’t have to wake up early to scrape off your car.

            19. Let your dog shine. Spray your dog with one cup white distilled vinegar mixed with one quart water. The solution is a cheap alternative to expensive pet-care products, plus the vinegar will help repel pests like fleas and ticks.  20. Battle litter-box odor. Cat litter can leave behind an unwelcome smell. Eliminate it by pouring a half-inch of white distilled vinegar into the empty litter box. Let stand for 20 minutes, then rinse with cold water.

            Minsan bumalik ako sa paghiga at iniwan ko
            21. Kill bacteria in meat. Marinating in vinegar knocks out bacteria and tenderizes the meat. Create a marinade by adding ¼ cup balsamic vinegar for every 2 pounds of meat to your own blend of herbs and spices. Let the meat sit anywhere from 20 minutes to 24 hours, depending on how strong you want the flavor, then cook it in the morning without rinsing.

            22. Prevent cracked eggs. Prevent eggs from cracking as they hard-boil by adding two tablespoons of white vinegar to the water. The eggs will stay intact, and the shells will peel off more easily when you’re ready to eat them.

            23. Steam away a microwave mess. Fill a small bowl with equal parts hot water and vinegar, and place it in the microwave on high for 5 minutes. As the steam fills the microwave, it loosens the mess, making clean up a breeze.

            24. Repair DVDs. If you have a worn DVD that skips or freezes, wipe it down with white distilled vinegar applied to a soft cloth. Make sure the DVD is completely dry before reinserting it into the player.

            25. Get those last drops. If you can’t get that final bit of mayonnaise or salad dressing out of the jar, dribble in a few drops of vinegar. Put the cap on tightly and shake. The remaining condiments will slide out.

            26. Rinse fruits and vegetables. Add 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar to one pint water. Use the mixture to wash fresh fruits and vegetables, then rinse thoroughly. The solution kills more pesticide residue than does pure water.

            27. Brighter Easter eggs. Before your kids dye Easter eggs, mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar with ½ cup of hot water, then add food coloring. The vinegar keeps the dye bright and prevents the color from streaking.

            28. Loosen a rusted screw. Pour vinegar onto the screw, and it will easily unstick.

            29. Remove gum. To remove gum from fabric or hair, heat a small bowl of vinegar in the microwave. Pour the warm vinegar over the gum, saturating the area. The gum will dissolve.

            30. Keep cheese from molding. Wrap cheese in a vinegar-soaked cloth, then place in an airtight container and refrigerate.

            31. Renew a loofah. Soak your loofah in equal parts vinegar and water for 24 hours to dissolve soap residue, then rinse in cold water.

            32. Remove wax. If you get melted candle wax on your wood furniture or floors, gently wipe it away with a cloth soaked in a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water.

            33. Take a relaxing bath. Add ½ cup of vinegar to warm bath water for a cheap spa session at home. The vinegar removes dead skin, leaving you feeling soft and smooth.

            34. Brighten your hair. Remove hair product buildup by rinsing a tablespoon of vinegar through your hair once a month.

            35. Freshen fabrics. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and spritz your home to neutralize odors in fabrics, carpets, shoes or any sprayable surface. 36. Erase crayon. If your kids get crayon marks on the walls or floor, dip a toothbrush in white vinegar and gently scrub. The vinegar breaks down the wax, making for an inexpensive, nontoxic way to clean up after children.

            37. Sticky stickers. Don’t scratch at the residue left by stickers or price tags. Instead, apply vinegar to the gunk, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe the glue away.

            38. Clean the dishwasher and coffee pot. Reduce soap buildup and food residue by pouring a cup of vinegar into your empty dishwasher or coffee pot once a month and letting it run a full cycle.

            39. Sanitize pet accidents. You can remove the stain?and smell?of your pet’s accident by mixing ¼ cup vinegar with a quart of water and blotting the mixture onto the mess with a washcloth. Continue dabbing until the spot is gone. 40. Prep for summer grilling. To remove charcoal buildup from your grill, spray white distilled vinegar on balled up aluminum foil and scrub the grate thoroughly.

            41. Restore showerhead pressure. If your showerhead gets clogged with mineral deposits, soak it for 15 minutes in a mixture of ½ cup vinegar and 1 quart water.

            42. Clean your scissors. When your scissor blades get sticky, wipe them down with a cloth dipped in full-strength white vinegar. Unlike soap and water, vinegar won’t ruin the blades or rust the metal.

            43. Unclog drains. For a natural, nontoxic way to clean clogged pipes, pour one cup of baking soda, followed by one cup of white vinegar, down the drain. Let the products bubble and foam, then flush the pipes with a pot of boiling water.

            44. Eliminate dandruff. If your scalp is feeling dry or flaky, vinegar can be a simple at-home remedy. Once a week, pour one cup of apple cider vinegar over your scalp, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.

            45. Soften your feet. Summer sandals leaving you with cracked heals and calluses? Soak your feet for 20 minutes a day in one part vinegar to two parts warm water. The vinegar removes dead skin, leaving your feet soft and smooth.

            Kakatamad Na Sabado

            Bukod sa tinatamad, emo-mode ako ngayon. Di ko alam kung ano o saan galing ang pinaghuhugutan ng malamyang pakiramdam kong ‘to.

            1. Hindi kaya dala lang ‘to sa ayaw paawat at rumaragasang pagtulo ng sipon ko? Kahit sinuksukan ko na ng tisyu ang dalawang butas ng ilong ko? Feel na feel ko pati ang mga namumuong   plema sa lalamunan ko. Pero hindi ko sya iniluluwa. Tinatamad ako eh. Kaya tuloy feeling-busog na busog ako ngayon – sa kalululon. Yak. Hehe.
            2. Hindi kaya dismayado lang din ako dahil sa pangyayaring hindi ko inaasahan ngayon hapon? Sandamakmak na beddings ang nilabhan ko kaninang madaling-araw.  Nahirapan ako sa pagsampay sa dami. Tapos kung kelan patuyo na sya eh nabasa ulit sya ng ulan. Hindi ko naisilong. Ang dahilan? Nakatulog ako. ‘Kingina talaga! Ayan! Sabi ng wag matutulog eh. Sinabihan ko na sarili ko, pasasaan ba’t pag natigok ako eh makakatulog din ako – ng tuloy-tuloy. 😛

            Sinubukan kong daanin ang lahat sa pag inom ng isang tabo ng kapeng barako. Shet! Pati kapeng barako ko ay parang ayaw sumipa ang birtud ng lasa para mapasigla ako. Nananawa na rin yata ang dila ko sa cheapipay na kape at naghahanap na ng ibang lasa, siguro gusto eh yung medyo mamahaling kape naman daw. Charot!

            Pati pagligo, tinamad ako. Buti pa ang aso ko, bagong paligo. Kaya siguro ayaw nya lumapit sa akin. Isip-sip nya, amoy-aso ako sa hindi ko pagligo kaya dedma. Shet sha.

            Tonight’s Dinner

            Napansin kong halos 48 years na yata ‘tong isang jar ng Apricot Preserves sa ref namin na binigay lang sa akin noon. Hindi kami mahilig na mag-ina sa mga jams and preserves kaya hindi namin ‘to nagagalaw. Nanghinayang naman ako na baka abutan lang ng expiry date kaya naghanap ako ng recipe na pwedeng paggamitan ng Apricot Preserves.

            Apricot Preserves

            At eto nga may nakita ako from tastykitchen.com.

            Hot and Sweet Chicken Drumsticks

            • 1 cup Apricot Preserves
            • ½ cups Ketchup
            • ¼ cups Soy Sauce
            • 2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
            • 2 teaspoons Hot Pepper Sauce
            • 3 pounds Drumsticks (about 12)

            Preheat oven to 350F. In a small saucepan, combine preserves, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until preserves are melted.

            Arrange drumsticks in a single layer on a 13 x 9? baking pan. Pour sauce over drumsticks, turning to coat. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is done, spooning sauce over drumsticks while baking. Serves 6.

            Since tatlo lang naman kami dito sa bahay, tig kalahati lang sa nasabing mga ingredients ang ginamit ko.

            marinated chicken

            Two days ago ko pa ‘to hinanda at inilagay lang sa ref. Kaya 2 days ng naka-marinade ang chicken na ‘to bago ko bineyk kanina. Kaya naman nanuot talaga sa karne ang lasa.
