Chicken Thighs and Narci

I was never blessed with a daughter. Facing this, I did consider dressing up one of my sons as a baby girl for one day. Just one day….only one, honest! I decided against it…. I’ll tell you this—he would have been the prettiest baby girl in the world!

Oops, I digress…sorry…..

Ok, no daughters, but my two best girl friends do have daughters. I couldn’t ask for it better. I got to be “friend mom,” the fun mom, the crazy mom. I didn’t have to deal with boys sniffing around, hormones, crushes, heartbreak or first kisses, unless I was called upon to impart my parenting wisdom – yeah, I’m a whiz at parenting—I’m the one who wanted to dress up my boy as a girl….Sicko!!!

Narci is one of my “friend daughters.”

Obviously this picture was taken a while ago….my sweet Narci was 13.

I was, well….younger! We were in Portland Ore. celebrating Narci’s birthday. What a celebration it was too! Belly dancing, secret missions in a leopard print bathrobe, hanging out a taxi cab window, pizza delivered to a 5 star hotel room—yeah, we had a great time.

Narci is now 21 and a college student. She is an amazing young woman. Smart, funny, sweet, kind, thoughtful, considerate, Sandra did a fabulous job raising her little girl. The world is a better place because of Narci…

Sandra is still one of my best girlfriends. I miss you guys! 🙁


Ok, on to the Chicken Thighs….when Narci graduated from high school her parents put on a huge reception. I made these. Sandra bought two family packs of chicken thighs and thought I could figure out something to do with them…I did and they turned out delish!

Teriyaki Chicken Thighs Appetizers

3 C Yoshida’s Original Gourmet Sauce more if you use more chicken

1 or 2 family pack chicken thighs

2 inch piece of ginger—grated or minced

2 cloves garlic—grated or minced

2 green onions sliced

3 Tbsp sesame seeds

Take the skin off the chicken thighs. Mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add the thighs. Marinate over night. Preheat oven to 325* Take the thighs out of the marinade, but save it. Put thighs in a large roasting pan. Bake for about 2 hours, basting once in a while. They should almost be caramelized. Boil the reserved marinade, use as a dipping sauce or put it in a crock pot with the thighs to keep warm and yummy!
