When the weather cools down
I love to turn on the oven and cook amazing meals
Lately, the weather has been hit or miss
One day it's freezing
(by my SoCal standards, anything below 70 should be against the law)
the next day,over 80 degrees
I love a perfectly cooked chicken
Paired with roasted veggies and a glass of bubbly
The weather was in my favor!
Start with the best ingredients
I Grabbed this beautiful bird at my favorite Butcher Shop
in Los Feliz, CA
Simply, Cut up some veggies and aromatics
Throw in a Pyrex dish
Place birdie on top after stuffing it with some of the veggies and aromatics
Smear the skin with delicious butter, salt, pepper, and garlic
Top with herbs
Put in oven
Take your time preparing your side dishes
and cleaning the kitchen
Here is your reward
A Beautiful Bird!
I could stare at this all day
but I'd prefer eating it

I Love this pic!

I was craving something super delicious
as a treat to celebrate a few long weeks of training clients and completing this 1/2 Marathon, completely unprepared, over trained, and utterly exhausted.
Sometimes I crave some "interesting" things after a long run
Cold pizza and beer
really hit the spot after the
After this 1/2 Marathon, I was craving something a little more indulgent.
But first, I had to make a quick pit stop to one of my all time favorite places
for a shrimp taco before heading to my other post-run-standby
for a large order of Sizzling Rice Soup!
After taking care of serious business
Saying hello to the most wonderful fish taco stand owner, Joseph Cordova, and eating my favorite immediate-post-run-snack
and heading to Chi Dynasty for my Sizzling Rice Soup
I headed towards
My Meaty Mecca
to grab some
Placed them atop some foil on a baking sheet,
sprinkled them with flake salt and some freshly ground pepper
and surrounded them with fresh sage from my garden
Served them with toasted whole grain bread
and a bottle of bubbly
...for the amazing Cod
Also picked up from McCall's!
Of course, I had to throw in some pretty heirloom tomatoes
for color, flavor, texture, and nutritional value
All served up with my favorite view
