Weekend Cooking Adventures

Saturday was my night to cook.  We had wanted to have a roasted chicken recipe I had made a couple of years ago, again. It was from Cooking Light magazine.  So I gathered my rather simple ingredients....



Did some cleaning and chopping...


And about an 1 1/2/ hours later I had this beautiful bird....


and these roasted vegetables...


along with the best gravy I have EVER made....


All turned into this yummy bowl of goodness, with lots of weekday leftovers...


While I was busy with the chicken.....Mike mixed some peaches and berries....


and put together a little cobbler....


Now time for the true test....


and it tastes even better than it looks....as if that were possible....


Sunday's are for grilling....


Grilled salmon with Adobo Chile Merlot BBQ sauce and tasty rice pilaf.


Who needs to eat out....

Sometimes simple ingredients are the best! Thanks for the delicious reminder that it is more fun to cook and eat at home!

I am totally inspired to make cobbler this weekend, that just looks delicious!! The rest of it does too of course, but I KNOW I'll get help finishing the cobbler ;)
