Small one someone ordered

inside small one

Still not really cooking. A friend brought me some some fresh veggies. Cabbage,green beans,green onions, cucumbers, squash, red potatoes & zucchini. Yummy!! I pressured cooked the cabbage & the green beans. Of course not together!! tee hee!! I stir fried the the squash & zucchini with the green onions. Yes together this time!! Baked the potatoes in the microwave. The cukes I just ate raw in salad or by them self's! I just got a new batch of yellow squash yesterday. Think I'm going to freeze some & looking for some new recipes for the rest!

I won a giveaway from the The Dutch Baker's Daughter blog. It was was for 3 bottles of stuff from Saucy Mama. I got Sweet Heat marinade, Pacific Rim dressing & Tarragon Lemon mustard. So need to find something yummy to do with them!! Thanks Kathy!!

I forgot I did cook this this past Monday.

Roasted chicken with rice flavored with lemon and thyme is a five ingredient winner!

Pantry Items:
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Salt and pepper
5 Ingredients:
1 cup basmati rice
2 cups chicken stock
1 lemon, thinly sliced
6 sprigs thyme
1 chicken (about 2 1/2-3 pounds)
Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF.
Pour the rice into a 9-inch x 13-inch ovensafe baking dish. Add the chicken stock, lemon slices, thyme sprigs and some salt and pepper. Stir to ensure an even layer of rice on the bottom of the dish.
Arrange the chicken on top of the rice. Drizzle the chicken with EVOO and season with salt and pepper.
Roast in the oven for about 1 hour, until the rice is tender and the chicken is cooked through.
Remove from the oven. Place the chicken on a board and let rest, about 5-10 minutes, before carving.
Stir the rice to loosen.

Wonderful bags. The one reminds me of watermelon! Nothing like garden goodness. No need to cook too much when eating fresh!
