Tonight’s food prep was simply stunning! I never knew how satisfying and rewarding growing our own food would be until we raised our own chicken! Knowing what is, or particularly what isn’t, in food is the first step to eating healthy and our Chavis Farm pastured boneless skinless breasts are above par! I pan-seared them with evoo, basil, oregano & cracked pepper then tossed in fresh dug Irish potatoes seasoned with paprika & garlic along with some frozen California red grapes into my cast iron skillet and the rest is history….πŸ‡

I went hard in the kitchen tonight whipping up what will probably become my new favorite go-to chicken dish! The fruity flavor combinations were mouthwatering and aromatically succulent…for a second I thought I was in Rome!

Pan-seared {Chavis farm raised} chicken breast with strawberry balsamic glaze, seasoned Irish potatoes and roasted California red grapes!

The secret ingredient for this recipe is Strawberry Jam…homemade, store bought, whatever floats your boat! Mix 3 tbsp with one tbsp of your favorite BBQ sauce and a few dashes of aged balsamic vinegar. Stir until smooth and brush over chicken breasts during the last 10 minutes of baking. I had some leftover so I used it as dipping sauce for my carved meat and potatoes, it was THAT GOOD! πŸ˜‹πŸ‡

I went all out with this dish…even making my own cheese days ahead. I wanted Lasagna bad and traveling to the northern region of Italy for the original recipe hiding in some granny’s cupboard was out of the question. So I turned my kitchen into Little Italy and voilΓ‘: fresh Farmer’s Cheese, made-from-scratch marinara and homemade fresh duck egg lasagna noodles! Oh my I’ve went and done it now πŸ…πŸ΄πŸ·

Went home for lunch to bake a pizza! Gotta start thinking ahead so I took out a crust that I froze from the last batch of dough I made and cooked the sauce last night from extra tomatoes out of my garden! All I had to do was throw some cheese on that bia and tadΓ ! #MealPlanning #Workingclassproblems πŸ•

Three slices later and I’m already missing the roof of my mouth! #muyCaliente #soworthit #MargherittaPizza πŸ˜πŸ˜‹

Cheesy basil pesto fettuccini with grilled shrimp and braided herb bread! First time making this pasta sauce and I don’t know if it was my fresh basil, basil blossoms or basil infused olive oil that sparked sensations on every taste bud in my mouth but boy was it amazing!

Basic baking powder biscuits using the recipe off the can but I added garlic salt & oregano, braided three rolled out pieces and topped with butter! For the sauce I combined fresh basil blossoms, two frozen basil cubes, basil olive oil and a pack of creamy Mac & Cheese powder #EasyPeasy πŸ΄πŸ’›

Fresh summer basil picked from my garden….I have soOo much coming off I froze some for later use! Hello Pesto! πŸ’š

Homemade Garlic Basil Blossom Red Wine Vinegar! This stuff should be incredible! I felt so bad removing the blooms from my basil plants because they were so fragrantly aromatic, but they had to go! Can’t wait to try this in a few weeks! 🌿🌺
