It has been some time since my last post. After being out of town the end of July and again the first weekend of August, I just haven’t gotten around to posting much. I have taken some pics of the meals I have created over the past few weeks. Here is some of what I have been up to.
Chicken, asparagus, roasted potatoes and corn on the cob (from Indiana). I made this shortly after returning to Houston from South Bend.
The weather in Houston has been scorching! So what do I do today (high temp was at least 109*)… I baked.
Baked them in my convection toaster oven outside on the patio.
Everything was made from scratch. I used olive oil in the pastry dough. it turned out great!
For dinner this evening I made the grilled chicken again.
Of course, I had to have a nice cold drink to keep me hydrated while cooking on the grill. So I made a Watermelon Dacqueri (sp?). It was great, but you know everything tastes even better when served in a fancy glass… For this I used frozen watermelon (from Indiana), a brazilian liquor some lime juice and sugar. Mmm, Mmmm, good!
I got a great recipe for a marinade from my niece, Jessie. Boy is it yummy!
I even used the marinade on the potatoes and green beans that I made as side dishes.
I timed them so that everything would finish on the grill at the same time.
