I used a red sauce on top and baked it with some provolone put on in the last 5-10 minutes. As far as the sauce it depends on how tired I am whether I actually make it from scratch or just "nanatize" and jarred sauce.
Thank you Alison. I will check one of my Barilla boxes. The family member used to make her own pasta for filling. It was fantastic...lots of work but oh so delish.

Oh Brandi you are sending us each a jar of your salsa right? You have my address. It looks so good.

This recipe is so easy and every one loves it. I sometimes roast more than one and use the chicken for salads, tacos anything I can come up with.

Roasted Rosemary Chicken
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Rosemary!
I am definitely trying this one!!!

Marilyn - Hope you have good news about your godson soon.


Brandi - LOVE your food porn.


Ann - Thanks for the Chicken recipe.






WFDT? Surprisingly, I have some chicken maryland defrosting on the sink at the mo'. So, it might be a version of Ann's Rosemary recipe. I normally do a similar thing for roast chicken; only I use tarragon instead of rosemary. But as I have rosemary growing in my garden and no tarragon, looks like it will be a rosemary chicken meal tonight.

DH will be getting something with shrimp for dinner. I might go take a look at Brandi's shrimp recipe and figure out if I have most of the ingredients in my pantry or not.

I often eat Chicken Cordon Bleu from the bos, if it's the same one, it's pretty good and easy! Sometimes I get the one stuffed with broccoli and call it that I have both my protein AND vegetable! You have gone above and beyond the call of duty for a balanced meal!

It must have been the ban on food porn that influenced the idea. Since we've had some "bootleg food porn" (no telling your DH), we KNOW you can cook!

Thanks Ann.... I was hotter than I was expecting and not sure how much hotter it will get as it sets, but I have no idea how to transport them. My Dad wanted me to bring him one when we fly in October... How do you take that on a plane, underneath I know, but in my luggage?

Ladies, just a quick fly-by! I have been in school and my mind is mush! I have been cooking but nothing fancy.

Tonight we are just going to have leftovers, I do not want a mess in my kitchen. I have to be out of the house tomorrow morning at 5:15 to go to the surgery center so I needed to make sure my house is all in order. Now I am off to get a pedicure!

It's okay news. He does have a stress fracture however if he is very, very good, does exactly what the Dr. says he will be out for only 2 games. He's wearing a boot cast and will be on crutches for the next week then just the boot for the next two weeks. He goes back for an MRI in 3 weeks and if everything is good he can play the next game.

Place it in two gallon ziploc bags, then wrap it in bubble wrap, then in a towel and it should be well cushioned.

So those of you on FB may have seen my post about Jackie Chan last night. He is my youngest DN's hermit crab. He decided to run away from home yesterday. I went to spray the two crabs we have with water last night, have to keep their little lung thingy's moist, and one was gone. So I check the whole desk area their cage is on and my DM crawls around the floor, looking in everything under the desk, under a chair and finally finds him under the curtains near the back door.

Spritz him, put him back, go downstairs and when I come back up about an hour later, there he is trying to get out again. The cage they are in, which is specifically for hermit crabs, has several openings which I think may be where pieces can be added. Kind of like in a habitrail for hamsters. He had managed to twist the one open and was pushing his way out.

I put a candle holder on the opening and when I come up the next time my DM had replaced it with this really heavy book, he had tried to get out again.

So I got dinner inspiration from Ann's Chicken Rosemary recipe the other day.....



My starting ingredients:

Chicken Maryland - 2 pieces. I had this in my freezer and figured it needed to be cooked and eaten.








A whole bunch of vegetables - cut for roasting.








A whole bunch of herbs - from my garden.








And for my pesky vegetarian...shrimp.








For the Chicken


I chopped the parsley and some of the rosemary, sliced some garlic and slipped everything under the skin of the chicken.






Pan fry....






...to get a bit of colour on the skin.






Season with salt and pepper. As I had lime in the house, I squeezed a generous amount over the chicken skin. I even spread a little bit of butter on the skin. Place on a baking rack and tray and bake in a hot oven (210 C) for 35 - 40 minutes. The chicken should be nice and golden at this point.






Remove from the oven and let rest.



I had about 1/2 cup of chicken stock in the tray underneath. Strain the liquid/pan juices into a pot and add about 1 heaped teaspoon of corn flour. Heat on the stove until it thickens. This made a lovely gravy.








The roasted vegetables


As I was only cooking the chicken for about 35 - 40 minutes, I panfried the potatoes to get it started....







....and to get a golden colour on the potatoes. Transfer to a baking dish and add some rosemary sprigs and garlic to the potatoes.





Bake for about 40 minutes.






I also pan fried the other vegetables.







As the zucchini is a softer vegetable, I only added it to the pan so that they got coated with oil.







Transfer to a baking dish. I added sage to this dish.






Bake for 40 minutes.







A simple shrimp mix


I mixed some parsley, ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and oil to the shrimp.







Pan fry on each side...








...until cooked. Only took about 3 or 4 minutes on each side.









The end products


DH's dinner, which he had with the roasted vegetables!







My dinner!

That is good news, and I hope he does what he is told, so there will be no problems later in life...
