a good roasting!

With today being quite the dreary Sunday [both because it’s the day before the beginning of the week and also because it was gray outside], I decided to do as much cozying up as possible… couch, wine and movie]. To accomplish this feat, a simple roast chicken dinner seemed the easiest thing to come out of the kitchen!
Seasoned with some olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice and herbs de provence… this meaty bird was nestled into the oven for an hour and half to get its tan. During the last thirty minutes of cooking, our fragrant meal was treated to a splash of white wine to elevate the already flavorful treat! Once finished cooking, the chicken rested for a few minutes before getting plated and filling our bellies with satisfying warmth…
Till our next dining experience!

crisp and cool al fresco dining…

After a night full of delectable desserts, what better way to end the weekend than with an absolutely stellar weather day, a glass of wine [ok ok more than a glass] and grilling some beautiful pieces of meat!
Homemade corn relish, a vibrant green salad chock full of healthy add-ins, along with some thick, meaty goodness…
The relish was sweet and spicy, the salad… earthy and crisp, while the meat… well how better to describe than juicy and succulent with an intense meaty flavor that literally oozed with each perfect mouthwatering bite!
I’m looking forward to many cool, fall evenings of grilling and enjoying the outside weather, and being able to share them with all of you!

at a low simmer…
