Cyberschooler Lunch - Orange-Honey-Glazed Chicken

Today's midday meal for Spawn consists of an amalgam of leftovers from the previous few dinners: CS Dad's amazing Orange-Honey-Glazed Chicken Drumsticks, jasmine rice (from Yellow Thai Curry Night! Yum!), steamed spinach with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, 2 pineapple rings, a frozen Scooby-Doo Go-Gurt for dessert, and a Pixar Cars cup of watered-down pineapple orange juice with ice. I know it looks a little sparse, but it's on a full size adult dinner plate because all the kids plates are in the bottom of the kitchen sink right now. ;) This is actually a little more than Spawn would usually eat, but he had a check-up with his pediatrician yesterday and his weight gain is stagnating again even though he's grown nearly another inch since January. Prescription: more frequent smoothies and milkshakes! Doc Phil wants to see a little more fat in Spawn's diet, too, so that's something for us to work on this month and next.

There's no recipe for the drumsticks, but I watched CS Dad make the marinade. (Ordinarily, I'm not allowed in the kitchen during the cooking process, much less without my helmet. ;)) Orange blossom honey, a smokey local wildflower honey, clover honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, and ketchup. He offered me a taste and I suggested a little acid, maybe some OJ. IT WAS AWESOME!!! Orange-honey-tastic. =D
