Dinner and a Movie!



When I got home from work, Ben already had dinner ready! Then we saw Maleficent at the Majestic Bay Theater in Ballard. Gonzalez and Gonzalez give it two thumbs up! (With our rented car, we left the apartment at 6:40, found parking and were sitting in the theater at 6:58! I still amazed at how that happened!)

Lemon Chicken


bone-in chicken pieces–thighs and drumsticks

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic

zest and juice of 2 lemons

oregano, to taste

rosemary, to taste

thyme, to taste

salt and pepper, to taste


Combine all ingredients except salt and pepper in a sealed plastic bag or covered container and let sit for a couple of hours in the fridge. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, place chicken and all contents from marinating bag or container, and adding lemon slices, in a greased oven-safe container and bake for 40 minutes. salt and pepper to taste afterwards. Serve with rice and veggies.(sorry, no recipe for the rice and sauteed mushrooms with herbs.)

    • It was really good chicken. And I haven’t had chicken in a while. But since Ben doesn’t usually have the night off, and we usually don’t have a car, we decided at the last minute to go to the movie. It was a good diversion, but yeah, this chicken! I probably would have had seconds! Have a great weekend!!


  1. Don’t you love it when things just fall into place like that? I can see Ben is a fabulous cook and I really love the contrast you two have within your blog. Sweet and Savory. Was Gonzalez and Gonzalez right?


    • Yup. Gonzalez and Gonzalez stands for me and Ben. I changed my name to Gonzalez after the wedding. So, “Gonzalez and Gonzalez” is a take on “Siskel and Ebert”. Remember that movie critics show?
