Chris we have been having storm warnings every day, but just a little ( enough) rain.... and some nice summery temps, with the sun peeking in and out.
feta/spinach stuffed thighs
I got this recipe from the SB ( quick?) yellow ..recipe book.
But...... I am a cheapskate and improvise a little.... I use thighs from ( 10 lbs leg and thigh $5.90 with the skin.....) I trim the fat, separate legs from thighs, make a pocket as best I can next to the bone, pull skin away as much as I can without completely detaching..... salt and pepper and thyme,( sometimes rosemary too) both inside the pocket, and under the skin. Stuff with a little sautee'd spinach and feta or goat cheese. (cheese in first ) close with toothpicks..... I brown them nicely in hot- hot Iron skillet, and finish in 450 degree oven. ...oven time depends on size of thighs. 25 minutes for x-large bone in..... maybe 10 or 15 for smallish boneless.
This would be much easier with boneless, I am sure,
and would require less time..... but .....I have drums left which I use to make giant hot wings
I am getting plenty of exercise these days trudging up and down those blankity -blank stairs to the garden...I hope to be running up and down by next month
The golumbkis got rave reviews from the veggie heads......not MY favorite but edible, and the company was good.
I bought a yummy sweet watermelon for dessert, If we had not had mashed potatoes. we would have been pretty SB. ( Iced tea rather than wine
Finally back in the 150s again.....Yea!
I have ALL of my veggies in the garden ( unless I can find a pablano pepper plant). most of my flower beds ( all tiny) are ready to plant with annuals. Now to get the pots and hanging planters done....I will probably wait until next week, when my favorite nursery puts their flats on sale
