Saturday evening after spending the afternoon trying to finish the trim painting in the dining room, I thought I better make up for my crazy busy week by cooking a good dinner for my family. I roasted a stuffed chicken which came out deliciously... it was an organic free-roaming chicken and there definitely is a difference in taste! I also had found some pretty interesting food at the farmer's market this week. Purple potatoes (yes Dad, I made your hashbrowns with them!!):
A salad with lettuce and a tomato from our container garden, plus heirloom tomatoes of all shades of red, orange and yellow:
A fruit salad with yellow watermelon (in this photo is evidence that Nathaniel ate ALL of the grapes before we sat down to eat!!!):
My kids thought I'd gone crazy with all these weird colors but it all tasted the same and very delicious... here they are with smiles because it was good!:
I told my good friend Terri that I would also mention that she is collecting recipes for a cookbook she will be publishing to raise money for their family's adoption of a little girl from China! She is a great mom of four boys (the two older ones adopted also) and I know this is really a special thing we can do to help them (Terri was an elementary school teacher and also teaches English at one of our local colleges... I taught with her last year!). It takes so much money to pay for the classes, the adoption and the travel just to provide a little girl with a loving home! You can go here to her adoption website and email her your recipes. I know you have some good ones! I wish I was adopting also, but since we're not, I want to help how I can! I'll be sending mine to her. I hope you will too! Thank You!!!
