Mediterranean Hens

I did purchased a tray and pencils for Easter this year.  The tray was only $1.99 and the pencils were only $1.  I thought they were cute.Easter Stuff (1)

Here is an easy and very tasty way to cook these small Cornish game hens

¼ c. red wine vinegar
¼ c. honey-Dijon mustard
2/3 c. olive oil
3 Tbsp. Rinsed, chopped Spanish olives
2 cloves garlic, minced
¾ tsp. Dried oregano
¾ tsp. Dried thyme
Salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste
2 Cornish game hens, split in halfMediterranian Hens2

Mix vinegar & mustard together in a large bowl. Mix in oil, olives, garlic & seasonings. Add game hen halves, coating well on all sides. Cover bottom of large baking pan with heavy foil & place game hens cut side down. Spoon remaining sauce over top. Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes or until done, rotating pan about halfway through.

NOTE: Hens can be marinated in sauce for several hours, if desired.
