A Modern Day Julia

Carrot sticks have been baked in thyme, sugar, olive oil, salt & pepper at 425 for 20 minutes.

Can of corn is sitting in a pan awaiting a hot soak.

Chicken breasts smoothed in a couple tablespoons of dijon mustard, then quickly massaged in a rosemary rub of panko and salt, pepper are now working their magic and making my mouth water while they heat up in the oven at 425 for 25 minutes.

It's 4:30 pm. Dinner is done. Children are less wanky. Mom is not sure why this idea has never occured to her before tonight.
