Grilled whole chicken, tomato salad with arugula, grilled zucchini with parmesan cheese.
With Chuck traveling and working so much, it's tempting to let things slide a little on the meals front. For instance, last night for dinner, the kids ate frozen pizza (I heated it first) while sitting on a blanket on the floor in front of the TV. I ate popcorn for dinner.
But tonight I needed some civilization. Even though it's the middle of summer, I still crave roast chicken. Of course it would be obnoxious to roast a chicken when it's 90 and humid out. But if you remove the backbone of a whole chicken, rub its skin with olive oil and herbs and salt and pepper, and put it flat over evenly-spread coals, it grills on the Weber very nicely. You get the same meal, and importantly the same leftovers, as if you'd had your oven going at 425 for an hour and a half. This week: the leftovers!
