My take on Jamie Olivers quick and easy chicken wings.
Start writing a post

I am going to give you a weekly recipe for my favorite healthy go to meals! As a working mother of three I am constantly busy but I love yummy and healthy food! This recipe was inspired by Jamie Oliver's quick and easy meals( I have secretly fallen in love with him, he's seriously adorable) and I am going to share it with you! These wings are tender and so so delicious.

Ingredients:

Salt

Pepper

Chicken wings 6

Teriyaki sauce 4tbs (I use sugar free

Spring Onions

Sesame seeds

Spinach

Brussel Sprouts

Arugula

Olive oil


So first, the wings! I got these started first, since they took the longest!

Take a pan that can fit all of the wings in a single layer. Spread olive oil around the bottom of the pan and set the burner to medium-high heat. Heat the olive oil until you can easily swish it around coating the entire bottom of the pan. Then lay the wings in the pan. I like to shake my pan in a circular motion every 3-5 minutes to evenly cook the wings. Once you get a bit of darkening on the wings you add 3 tablespoons of the teriyaki. I continue my circular shaking of the pan to evenly coat the wings. You can also use a spatula, which some may find easier! Then once the teriyaki starts sizzling, add hot water. Just enough to cover the wings. Cover and leave it for a while.

Next, the brussel sprouts. First I slice all of my brussel sprouts in half. I follow the same instructions with my olive oil. Lay the brussel sprouts flat in the pan, get a good crisping on them. Then I add the remaining teriyaki for a bit of flavor! Thoroughly coat the brussel sprouts in the seasonings, olive oil, and teriyaki mixture. Add a cup of water to the brussel sprouts, cover and leave.

Now, on to the side salad! This part is optional, I like to make a spinach and arugula salad. You can add whatever salad fixings you like! For the dressing I like to use olive oil and a nice italian dressing. It is the perfect touch to a healthy meal. From start to finish it took me thirty minutes to complete this recipe.

You could also do this in a crock pot if you wanted. Fry the wings for about 2 minutes in olive oil, throw everything but the salad and the kitchen sink in the crockpot, set it and forget it for 4-6 hours. 4 hours if you have it set to high, 6-8 hours if you have it set on low. I personally love my programmable crockpot due to how easy it is to set. When I come home from work, dinner is cooked and still hot, ready for us to spend some quality time as a family.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
