The Artist From The Inside Out

This is one pretty Bird!  My fiancée’ has perfected the art of roasting chickens.  We  found this great recipe (and we have tried it twice thus far) in my Bon Appetit magazine. I will post the recipe at the end of this blog post.

Mmmmmm….mmmm, they are a great looking pair of legs.

Hey, hey no picking!

Sweet Plum Tomatoes, to make us a nice salad.

Crisp and fresh!

I whipped up a fragrant and light ” Lime vinaigrette”   to toss into our salad.

Jalapeño and scallions ready to sauté with rice,  for our last side dish.

Saute scallions, the peppers, and olive oil with a fresh squeeze of lime juice toss in some white rice and season with salt and pepper.

Tasty stuff!

Finger licking’ , down home,  crispy and  succulent roasted chicken with salad and jalapeño lime rice!

Woo! Hoo! Good Eats.

In our household we love to eat light veggie meals in the summertime. We have lots of local fresh produce from Florida, Georgia and Tennessee available now and all the summer produce is at its peak, so we create meals around what is available at our farmer’s market.

Butternut Squash

 

Roasted with Cinnamon and Sea Salt

 

Spiced and Roasted Squash Seeds

Guacamole and Crudite’

Guacamole is a staple in our household during summer

Beets and Beer

Beets and beet tops sautéed in garlic, olive oil and sea salt served with spiced rice on top of a fresh fennel salad

Roasted Broccoli with Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Fresh Garlic 

Roasted Pablano’s

Scraping the seeds out of pablano’s 

 

Summer Salad with Garden Fresh Radishes

This is a mango from a friends mango tree. Notice the odd hook it grew, it was still a very sweet and juicy tasting mango.

This unusual striped variety of eggplant, the Calliope,  inspired one of my many  “veggie only night” dinners. It isn’t difficult to forgo the heavy, meat laden yummy meals, that are more suitable for colder weather indulgences, during these steamy days of our hot Florida summer.

Slice and douse with a fruity olive oil, sea salt, and fresh herbs of your choice…we used parsley. Spread on a baking sheet and roast at 300 degree’s for about 1/2 hour.

To make a complete meal I served with some bright and delicate Mizuna greens, sautéed with olive oil and fresh garlic, all from our Sarasota Farmer’s Market (as is the eggplant). We are still able to buy some good organic/local produce for a while longer, before the hot and humid days of summer spoil the fun for us here in the sunshine state.

I baked up a couple of yams and poured some lovely, crisp and fruity white wine into some glasses to create the perfect, romantic candlelit, “veggie only night”  dinner for my fiancée and I!
