My Tutu's funeral is today. I wish I could be there to celebrate her life. Also, the party will be fantastic! (Tutu always loves a good party, she'll just be sad she missed it.)
I wish I could be there with my dad and brother. Aunts, uncles, cousins.
Since I can't be there, I'll share Tutu with you. Here are two recipes off the top of my head that Tutu taught me while I was in college.
mince 1 head of garlic
mix with a lot of salt
rub mixture between the skin and flesh and in the cavity of a whole chicken
bake covered 350 about an hour or until it falls off the bone
the meat tastes great on sandwiches
parboil 2-3 packages of ramen noodles
chop one or two chicken breasts into bite size pieces. Stir fry
finely chopped yakisoba vegetables such as carrots, cabbage, mushrooms, onion
add ramen noodles.
add 1 or 2 of the spice packets for flavoring
