Braedon’s birthday was this weekend and we had so much fun playing with his new toys. But it made me miss a blog post. I’m not sad that I missed it though, I loved the time that I had playing with my little man.
I made affiliate on Twitch! That makes me so happy! It means that I have a little more opportunity to start a community there. It does give me more hope to make a community there that really lasts.
I decided to make a chicken marsala on the stream yesterday and it was gorgeous. It tasted so good. But the secret is, I didn’t use marsala wine. I couldn’t find it anywhere at my local grocery stores, so I had to do a lot of research and make it myself.
Marsala wine is just fortified wine and you can do that with a little bit of brandy.
I thought that was the greatest tip that I have heard of in a long time.
It tasted just like it too.
There wasn’t a difference between this chicken marsala and the one with marsala wine.
- 2lbs boneless chicken breast pounded

- Salt and Pepper
- 8 oz mushrooms halved

- Add chicken stock and chicken, reduce in half. And serve.
I have had major ear problems over the past 2 weeks. I think we have finally found the solution and we are going to have to do a minor surgery on it.
It might put me out of the blog scene for a day or two.
But before that I get to go to TechMunch for the 2nd year in a row! I can’t wait to learn more about what other people are doing and how they are blogging. And to meet more people who are amazing bloggers in the bay area.
