What I've Been Making for Dinner: June 6, 7, 8, 2010

Here's a list:

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.


  1. I just read about the baked eggs in the recent Everyday Food magazine; it's definitely making an appearance at the Chez Medford table sometime in the next week. Glad to hear that the children approve!

    Let's get together for a grown-up dinner soon. Email me with some ideas about your schedule.

    Missing you, my wonderful culinary friend.
