It's summertime and so much easier for me to be in a sunny mood. I have lots of favourites today. My new sandals, the sunglasses I stole from Rob, the long days, the warm temperatures, and open windows are a few of my favourites today.
But, since this is a cooking blog, I'll share one of my favorite flavors - lemon.
Lemons are so versatile. They are fresh tasting and smelling - and can be utilized for sweet or savory applications.
I have linked several recipes. Enjoy!
Lemony Garlic Chicken
small red or white potatoes (2 per person)
5 T salted butter
fresh herbs, minced (I used what I grow: oregano, basil, chives, parsley)
1 lemon, juice and grated rind
1. Boil potatoes in large stockpot until tender. Drain and place back into pot.
2. Add remaining ingredients and cover. Turn stove to high and cook for about 3-5 minutes. I keep the lid on and shake the pot every so often to insure even browning.
3. Remove from heat and serve.
