To-You's-Day - see what I did?

I want to try and do a little digi give away every Tuesday (To-You's-day ....... you know, To You's day!!!). Aaaaaaaaand so I give you my first Tuesday giveaway, Moo cow. I am reeling in amazement at my over imaginative name for him, I really am. But he is yours, both coloured and uncoloured to do with as you wish. And if you take him, I'd love to see how you used him too.
You can get the him from here
When you get to the links destination, you click on the purple link to download him, then it takes 25 seconds for the link to appear - please be patient

Today
I whipped this card up whilst I was having a good old chin wag on the phone to one of my friends. I enjoy be constructive/productive whilst Im on the phone - I even like to clean and cook when Im on the phone. I could well do with some of those headphones that "feeds" from the phone so I could have two hands free without holding the phone in the crook of my neck! Ouch!

Tonight
I made another "dinner in a bag". I'm on my own until Mark gets back tomorrow and it's not fun having a pile of dishes for a tasty meal for one, is it? I mean, I could just have beans on toast or a boiled egg but tonight I really fancied something homemade. Mark has gone to drop Belles off at her Nanna's for a week and its just me and the pooch - ugh, I hate being in this house on my own. So, anyway, this time I used cranberry chutney and honey instead of paprika plus I added a tablespoon of those salad crispy dried onions.
Now, let me tell you that those high fat little buggers taste so amazing in stews and casseroles so I knew this would be no different. And the result was insanely delicious.

This recipe calls for an oven bag (hence little washing up) and Ive called it Licky lippy, super sweet sticky Chicken.
You also need:

8 chicken thighs
tiny chunks of the salami style chorizo
half chopped fresh onion
8 cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of cranberry chutney
1 tablespoon of crispy dried onions
You could add 2 medium chopped potatoes but I omitted them and had rice (cooked separate)

Fill the bag, place on an oven tray for 35 minutes on gas mark 6. Remove, drain chorizo fat away and devour.

Hi Kirsty, loved last weeks chicken in a bag. Cooked it for friends and they loved it! Took all the credit and didn't tell them how easy it was ;-D Will be trying the new one very soon. Love your blog and looking forward to seeing you on QVC. Sharon

Sounds yummy, am on dukan diet{13lb off in last 10 days yippee!} so will have to avoid oily buggers at all costs! Sure it would still be good with plain old onions though.Thanks for reminding me oven bags exist. My once a week washing up sluttiness wil be improved no end.x
