I must admit, I was blanking a bit on what to write about for today's post. What I had planned just didn't seem that good anymore and nothing else came to mind. I really wanted to try to to get this written before dinner came out of the oven to avoid the late night or early morning writing that sometimes happens. Jasen and I bounced ideas back and forth for a while and then it hit me. I could write about dinner! Also, I think posting about our meals could be a fun thing to do every so often, just to show y'all what real life eating looks like for us. Now, let's get on to the food!
Last night's dinner was the kind I love: it looks way more impressive than it actually is. We had a roasted chicken in the same genre as this one, but with added lemon zest, lemon juice, and garlic. I roasted a bunch of farmers market veggies in the bottom of the pan including red and blue potatoes, onion, garlic, zucchini, bell peppers, and green beans.
I still haven't bought us a meat thermometer, so I just cooked and hoped for the best. Not my favorite method. I've definitely carved a cooked bird only to find that I need to microwave some pieces until they're done.
Note to self: Buy a meat thermometer already!
But, luckily, I didn't need to resort to the microwave method this time! Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. I tried to cut the chicken breast nice and pretty, but it just shredded. Guess it was pretty tender! The best part was how the veggies in the bottom soaked up all of the lemony-garlicy-herby flavor.
