We came home to a fruit fly problem. It seems to be solved now after we took two actions:
- Put out jars of apple cider vinegar, topped with saran wrap with toothpick-sized holes poked through. This TOTALLY worked.
- Completely cleaned out the fridge just to be on the safe side.
Starting back from scratch, with a completely cleaned out fridge, got me back in the mood to cook, so last night, I tried a new chicken recipe: sauteed chicken with sage brown butter.
First, I pounded two chicken breasts, salted and peppered them, and dredged them in all-purpose flour.
I turned down the heat a little bit (probably could have turned it down a little more) and added about 3 tablespoons of butter to the pan and two springs of sage. When the butter started to brown, I removed the sage sprigs and added minced garlic and thyme. I cooked for about 30 seconds, then added a little lemon juice and cooked for 30 seconds more. I added the chicken back to the pan, generously coated it in the butter sauce, and served it up with green beans!
