Going to see anthony bourdain tonight. Should be pretty good. I am going to be really tired for work though. Oh well. Sometimes I think that you have to do stuff like that. I think it keeps you young...or makes you feel old, I can't decide:) Garden season is pretty much over. I didn't get as many tomatoes as I would have liked, but I don't really think that anyone did. It was an incredibly mild summer. I can only really remember one week where it was miserable. Still haven't made any progress on the puff, puff, pastry tour. I have been super busy at work. You could even say I've been busy to the limit....kah! Anyway, I had better go to bed. I want to try and get as much sleep as I can. Hope to be posting some tasties soon. peace
It's like Christmas...Only the presents are wrapped in chicken!
I was really craving a triple threat last night (starch/veg/protein), but I wanted to do something a little bit different. I thought that roulades sounded good and I had some chicken so I put two and two together and pretty much rocked the house...hard. If you have never made roulades before you should give it a go. All you need to do is flatten some meat (in this case chicken) with something heavy (meat tenderizer/big ladle/can of soup) until you get about a 1/4 inch thickness; then, you can put whatever you want in it, roll it up and secure it with a toothpick. I filled mine with some black forest ham, fresh basil leaves, and some semi-firm goat cheese. Dredge the roulades in some seasoned flour and then saute in olive oil until golden, finishing them off in a 400 degree oven, if needed. I served mine with some sauteed zucchini/squash/onion and some oven fries.
