After a brief hiatus (for various and sundry reasons, not the least of which is this globe-trotting blogger) our Tuesday evening dinners have resumed. Now, the weather in the northeast has been unusually hot – downright toasty – and such temperatures are just not conducive to cooking. Enter the perfect solution, GRILL….Architect grilled a whole damn chicken! She has this little contraption on which the chicken sits and is grilled upright.
So I embarked on a hunt to find this little item. I typed “chicken grill stand” into an Amazon.com search and, there it was…in all its grilling glory
and BONUS I can have it by this Saturday if I order within the next 21 hours and choose next day shipping.
That was easy.
I was just as curious about the beer-can chicken recipe book for $8.51 but I passed on that.
This little piece of equipment produces the best roasted chicken ever…moist on the inside and fight-for-the-crispy-part on the outside. Delicious indeed. Architect also grilled asparagus and I contributed a zesty green salad with raspberries, goat cheese and sunflower seeds. Foodie made a quinoa salad. What, you ask? Quinoa (keen-wah) is a low carb grain with a taste and texture that is a cross between brown rice and oatmeal….tasty indeed. We also had a tiramisu cake that was left over from a weekend soiree.
Oh, mojitos…had those too. Might explain my sluggishness the next morning.
Crush mint and sugar to taste in a little bowl, add a shot of clear rum and 1/4 cup of fresh lime juice. Fill a tall glass with ice, add the rum mixture and top off with sparkling water. Garnish with a few sprigs of mint...yummy.
Youngest daughter’s Senior Ball is this weekend…they grow up so quickly!
