My Daily Whole 30 newsletter directed me to this recipe from theclothesmakethegirl.com and it is touted as the Best Chicken Ever!  I am totally going to give it a try and I will let you know the verdict.  Here is the recipe http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2009/06/09/the-best-chicken-you-will-ever-eat-ever/

Verdict: Juicy and flavorful and super easy. - Daughters gave it a thumbs up!

Now, to my weekly Local Harvest box.  This is my second week picking up a box of localish goodies from Local Harvest Grocery and Cafe, and I am excited about what is in store.  Last week I had so much fun experimenting with new vegis, turnips, shallots, collard greens - will this week be as interesting? Well, today's box has the following:
  • grass fed ground beef
  • pasture raised eggs
  • chives
  • braising kale
  • delicata squash
  • lettuce
  • almonds
  • Paleo ready made meal (pork tenderloin mashed sweet potatoes and squash)
  • grapefruit, tangerines
  • Trout
Dinner tonight was already planned but I was able to use the lettuce for my beet, apple, and dried cherry salad.  Here is what was on the menu at our house tonight

Salmon, fried eggplant, roasted turnips and shallots, and beet, apple, and dried cherry salad.
For the salmon I simply bought a good piece of fresh salmon at Dierbergs and brushed with olive oil then sprinkled with lemon pepper. Bake at 450 for 15 min.

ABC Salad (Apple Beet Cherry)
4 small beets (bought them cooked and packaged by organic vegis)
2 apples
1/4 cup dried cherries
bunch of lettuce
olive oil
apple cider vinegar

chop beets apple and cherries. Toss with lettuce and drizzle with olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Nice refreshing salad.

  1. I noticed for the chicken she used a gas grill. For chicken I always try and use charcoal as its easier to setup zones and control flare-ups (which burn/blacken the chicken and thus ruin it). Easiest way to do this is to put a metal drip pan under the center and load 2 zones of hot coals on either side of the drip pan. The middle will still get very hot, but there will be no flare-ups on the chicken.
