Grilled whole butterflied chicken with roasted potatoes.
Chicken shwarma burgers on pita with cucumber-dill salad.
Baked eggs and tortillas in tomato sauce with fried plantains.
Good dinners, all of them! Some things about them:
- When I made the grilled chicken I went ahead and made two chickens, one for some friends of ours who are temporarily out of commission. Hey, our grill can hold two whole chickens! Good to know!
- The dill in the cucumber salad came out of our garden. Planting an herb garden outside the kitchen door might be the best thing I have ever done as a homeowner.
- I have no idea why my children like the baked egg dish, since it looks for all the world like something they would never eat in a thousand years. In fact, it looks a lot like other things they refuse to eat all the time. Why, children, why?
- Fried plantains are awesome and yet Eli wouldn't even put one near his mouth. Dip blueberries in ketchup, though, and that kid is all over it.
