Whoa, what a morning!I was so enchanted by the sunrise that I ran straight east this morning to chase the colors. By the time I arrived at Cornelia Fort Airpark there was only a little bit of orange left in the sky, though.And then things got really ugly and grey in minutes. And it started raining. Boo.I covered a quick 4.5 miles because I’m saving my strength for a new fitness studio adventure tonight But I did tack on an extra .05 miles to get a photo of this sad trail of orphan Cheetos for y’all. Head to Porter & Benjamin St. if you’re hungry.
Speaking of food, on the menu last night was one of the best Cook Smarts meals we’ve made in a months! And that’s saying a lot because you all know I love their recipes. This dinner was so fancy we had to bust out the wine on a weeknight.The “secret sauce” is a marinade of olive oil, lots of lemon juice, and a bunch of spices (mostly rosemary with a handful of others). Toss the chicken with it and let it sit pretty for a few hours or overnight. The original recipe called for chicken thighs but I went for a whole bird!
You drizzle the marinade on chopped potatoes and roast those alongside the chicken. If only I had a Dutch oven large enough to fit both the chicken and the taters… (Anthony, my birthday is only five months away )Greek-inspired salad on the side. This meal was magical. Saving it as a favorite for the future.Aaaaannnnd tomorrow is FRIDAY. The end.
