Spatchcocking a chicken is to cut it down the back and flatten it. I do it when I made chicken under a brick, as well as for other recipes. Good to do when grilling chicken, too.

We are having blackened mahi sandwiches with arugula, tomato & onion, warm brussel sprout salad (brussel sprout leaves, carmelized onions, bacon & grapes) & sweet corn with chili cilantro butter. Double chocolate cookies with milk for dessert.

Okay, so our 6 for dinner became two then three so I ended up making a warm asparagus salad and spagetti with steak. It turned out really well.

I made a sort of chicken alfredo, and posted the recipe here under "Pasta"...made this one up as I went, to accommodate DH's palate. He does not care for heavy cream sauces, and this (while still having plenty of calories) has a lighter feel to it. It was quite good, and we scarfed it all up.Chicken Vegetable Almost Alfredo

It's so hot today (it's still 88 degrees), I wanted a heat-free dinner, so I made a shrimp and artichoke pasta salad, and served it over what is probably the last of the garden's lettuce, and bruschetta with pesto, chopped tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.

It's nearly 2pm here in aus on the 8th June and I am planning on cooking 6 chicken legs oven fried with a panko bread crumb coating.

First time I have tried it.

Panko? If you haven't used it before, you're gonna love it. Gives the best "crunch." I use it a lot, especially for frying pork chops and fish. Fabulous. Let us know what you think.

I know I'm really, really late on this, or really early lol. We went out to dinner last night to celebrate our youngest son graduating high school. We took him and his girlfriend. I had the mussels in a white wine pesto sauce, spinach salad w/feta cheese and dried cherries with a warm dressing and a filet w/green peppercorn sauce and asparagus. It was delicious. Everyone's meal was excellent. We hadn't been to this restaurant in so long and can't figure out why........it was just soo good!
