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·

Got my #NOLA fix… If you’ve ever had Bananas Foster down in New Orleans you know you’d devour anything combining these original flavors….

Thick, rich Brioche bread dipped in a lightly sweetened vanilla batter and grilled to golden perfection with classic New Orleans Foster’s sauce and sliced bananas caramelized in a buttery brown sugar glaze.

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˜‹
