I love new friendships. I love it that even when two couples are so distinctly different they can have so much in common as well. Our new friends Rachel and Matt are lovely people, super nice, and just a few doors down from us. We often end up walking our dogs together, and no matter what we end up doing, we always have a wonderful time with them.
Joel and Matt have been having a fantastic time preparing their "Go Bags" (you know, in case zombies attack), and Rachel and I have fun hanging out, too. She likes to cook and bake, too, but so far we haven't actually made anything together. We usually end up making a cup of tea and just sitting and talking (which is wonderful for a stay-at-home mom like myself!). We have plans to do some sugar cookies together, soon, though! The other week they brought dinner over to our house (it's more baby-eating friendly here) and she made a fantastic dish that she said I could share with you.
This chicken is super moist, and super tasty. I've actually made it twice (once with drumsticks and once with thighs) since she made it for us, so that means we've eaten it three times in the last three weeks. It's easy to prepare, and it looks as fantastic as it tastes. I hope you make it soon!

In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, honey, mustard, salt and curry.
