What's My Home Really Worth--- The Question We All Want Answered!

There are really just two major considerations when you determine the appropriate value for your Williamsburg VA property: market value and appraised value.
This is where many people get confused on value--- So many people will say, “The assessed value is X, so that is what it is worth”. This is so not accurate. Many times a house will sell more than the assessed value as the assessed value is what the city/ county taxes you on. I’ve seen houses sell 30,000 over their assessed value and no one wants to leave money on the table. Do you? I didn’t think so!
So let’s go back to the two values I was talking about earlier!
Market value is the value that a buyer…today…is willing to pay for your home.

Honey Soy Chicken with Thai Peanut Noodles


This is what I served for dinner last night. It was amazing. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!



What You Need:

4-6 Chicken Thighs (We cooked two split breasts too.)
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Light Soy Sauce
1 Tbl. Ground Ginger
2 Tbl. Garlic
Pepper to Taste
Large Ziploc Bag
Aluminum Foil
One Box of Thai Peanut Noodles

What to Do:

Mix marinade. This includes the honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and pepper. Place in large Ziploc bag and marinate overnight to thirty minutes. Reserve marinade.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Place Chicken on baking sheet and cover with aluminum foil. Cook thighs covered for thirty minutes. Uncover, baste after twenty minutes with marinade. You should see runoff from your chicken forming a gooey goodness on the bottom of the pan. Using your marinade brush, scoop some of this from the pan and baste onto chicken. Cover and continue cooking for ten more minutes.

Uncover your chicken. Cook until internal temperature reaches 165. 

While waiting on the chicken to cook, prepare Thai Peanut Noodle to specifications located on its box.

I love this large pot/dish my hubby got for me over Christmas. Someone told me it's a paella dish but I'm not sure.

Enjoy!
