Recipes

Okay I am SO sorry I haven't posted those recipes yet for you!

Cornished Game Hens: Makes sure they are thawed and rinsed. Individually wrap them in foil after seasoning them with a mix of 1/4 tsp thyme, 1/2 tsp lemon pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt. Cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes then open each and brush with melted butter. Cook another 15 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Make sure to cook these on a RIMMED baking sheet. I didn't and we had a MESS from the juices while they cooked.

Orange Ginger Green Beans: Use 1lb fresh green beans- snap off the ends and cut in half if you want. Simmer them for 5 minutes drain and put them in a bowl. If using fresh ginger: place 1tbsp butter with 1/2 c chopped shallots and 1tbsp finely chopped ginger in a sauce pan and saute 5 minutes. Once shallots are tender toss mixture with green beans and 1/2 tsp grated orange peel.

Hope that takes care of the ones requested. I'll try to get recipes out quicker next time someone asks!

made the cornish game hen! YUMMM!!! i added some rosemary and chive as well. I think the best part was that they were wrapped up in foil so it sat in it's own juices.
