Just for Fun...

Happy Saturday!

Mona came up with the idea to post on things, just for fun. She envisions them to be anything from restaurant reviews, to travel destinations, to the latest gadgets out there. I will be writing the posts in an attmept to bring her vision to light. 

My name is Zac Woodiel and I have the pleasure to work for "The Sisters". Providence Design couldn't be a more perfect place to work, and I have such a great time working with the girls and learning from them. Thats why Im so excited that I will be doing the Just For Fun posts, and what a better day to have some fun than a Saturday? Saturdays are supposed to be a day for us to take time away from work and just have fun, right?

Wednesday night I had dinner at a new restaurant in downtown Little Rock called Three Fold Noodles and Dumpling Company. They just opened this month and feature handmade dumplings, freshly steamed buns, and great noodles. They are located on Center Street... inside an old bank, where the original safe is still visible. 

My three friends and I were totally impressed! The menu is small but once you taste the food you don't mind. It is so good! 

We tried the dumplings and the noodles, and I cant say I have a favorite. They both were equally delicious. You have the option to add traditional asian condiments so we opted for spicy. Great decision! The dumplings are made fresh daily filled with your choice of chicken, pork, or vegetarian, and the noodles have the same protein option.

You must try the Taro Chips! They were a real standout. They fall somewhere between salty and sweet, and we found ourselves finishing two bags!

If you enjoy asian noodles and dumplings I definitely recommend Three Fold. So delicious and just the kind of place Little Rock needed. Great lunch spot as well.

I am super excited about the Just For Fun posts and really look forward to feedback from the followers.

Hope you enjoy them, after all it is Just For Fun

What do you think? Until next week, Zac 

Sunday Supper....Roman Chicken

Lets have something yummy tonight!

This Sunday Supper we are going to try this awesome looking Roman Chicken

We are hungry already.

Ingredients

4 skinless chicken breast halves, with ribs
2 skinless chicken thighs, with bones
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus 1 teaspoon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
3 ounces prosciutto, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons capers
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
Directions

Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. In a heavy, large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken until browned on both sides. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Keeping the same pan over medium heat, add the peppers and prosciutto and cook until the peppers have browned and the prosciutto is crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, wine, and herbs. Using a wooden spoon, scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Return the chicken to the pan, add the stock, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the chicken is cooked through, about 20 to 30 minutes.

If serving immediately, add the capers and the parsley. Stir to combine and serve. If making ahead of time, transfer the chicken and sauce to a storage container, cool, and refrigerate. The next day, reheat the chicken to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in the capers and the parsley and serve.

This delicious looking recipe is actually one from Giada De Laurentis on the Food Network website. For more tips on how to prepare this meal, as well as a video click here.

 

Lets break out the wine. A Sangiovese red Italian wine would be great with this!
