100th Post - Easter Dinner

Last year we were in England for Easter. This year we were alone again but we have our dog, Odin now. yay! I made cornish hens with spinach, mashed potatoes and shells n' cheese. I had made the cornish hens before (from a recipe by Rachael Ray) and they were a hit. There is no way I could ever finish a whole hen but I went ahead and made 2. I'll have to find a recipe to use up the remaining meat.

Cornish hens:
Pat dry and sprinkle with salt & pepper
Mix together 1 can orange juice concentrate (defrosted), 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup olive oil
Brush mixture liberally on cornish hens
Bake 15 minutes at 450 then 30 minutes at 350 (uncovered)
