Marinade for Chicken

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Ready In: 10 Minutes
Servings: 32(This is funny....I just saw wonder it was a lot of marinade!!)
"This simple marinade is made from ingredients many people have on hand (vegetable oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, wine vinegar, lemon juice, and seasonings), and can be prepared in minutes."
I am using Chicken Thighs--if you haven't used this part of the chicken---start NOW. Always yummy!! Maybe because thighs tend to be full of fat-haha!!
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons finely minced fresh
1. In a medium bowl, mix together oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, wine vinegar, and lemon juice. Stir in mustard powder, salt, pepper, and parsley. Use to marinate chicken before cooking as desired. The longer you marinate, the more flavor it will have. This is from

Make your own Chalkboard Paint!

Recipe of Chalkboard Paint:

3 teaspoons acrylic paint (color of choice), PLAIN OLD ACRYLIC CRAFT PAINT WORKS FINE
1 1/2 teaspoons glazing medium (water based)
1/2 teaspoon powder UNSANDED tile grout

USING A SPONGE BRUSH, apply 3 OR MORE coats on your painting surface. Sand with 400 (or more) grit sandpaper between coats, however, if you're careful and use a sponge brush, sanding might not be necessary.

When you're done painting, condition your chalkboard finish by placing a piece of chalk on its side and rubbing down the entire surface. Wipe it clean with a felt cloth and then wipe it again with a slightly damp cloth.

Thanks for the idea!!
