food not ferns

all of my big plans for the garden this long weekend went to hell. it rained and both myself and my german girl came down with a virus. since we couldn't work outside, we cooked. after drooling, in a lab like fashion, over a leaping frog chicken dish i saw on the 66 Square Feet blog, i followed her trail to Last Night's Dinner and then to Gourmet. i decided to keep it simple and just removed the backbone from the bird, flattened it out and used the marinade from Gourmet magazine. it cooked in about 50 minutes in a 450' oven. throw in a simple butter lettuce salad with garden tomatoes and avocado, and some crunchy garlic bruschetta, it was unbelievably delicious. quite obviously, the manner in which i believe to feed a cold: well. thank you Marie. now we're off to walk the lab (who also loved her bits of the bird)


  1. I must say that the key to the deliciousness was the slices of lemon UNDER the skin... YUM!

  2. Looks yummy. Can't live without lemon!
