Questions & Replies

  1. How many points is this receipe


  1. Super easy, will add more tomatoes next time and maybe mushrooms
  2. Unfortunately I did not have time to skin my drumsticks so went ahead but I thought the herbs was way too much so only used 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary leaves finely chopped and 1 teaspoon of dried thyme leaves and ground sage which I think flavoured the drumsticks well (more than that would have been overkill for us). My lemons were not juicy so used 2 and got just under 1/4 cup of juice. A punnet of tomatoes here is 250 grams which is what I used and suited the 3 of us that I was catering to and to be honest they pleasantly surprised and would quite happily have had more as the flavour from the marinate had perfumed them just a little and gave them a delightful taste. Overall on preparation time a quick and easy dish which you can bung in the oven and then voila and hour late dinner is ready (which gives you time to make the sides). Thank you Crafy Lady 13, made for Aussie/Kiwi Swap #45 October 2010.


<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit.
