Ordinary Miracles -Singing in the Rain + BBQ Rotisserie Chicken!

Traditionally the garden is planted around this May long weekend. And that’s what happens around this traditional place.
It has been raining for a couple of days. Perfect muddy ground for the cold weather hardy vegetables. Peas, carrots, beets, spinach, lettuce, potatoes.

There are a few spots left for the tomatoes and other bedding plants that need some hardening. But basically the GARDEN IS IN!

The rotisserie for chicken dinner… (there was time for a restorative hot shower, which is a pleasure when cold, hmm?) The marinade for the chicken was simple and delicious… in the blender- paprika, onion, garlic, lemon, chilies, salt and oil.
put in a plastic bag… add the chicken.

This marinade for the vegetables as well…

Salad with the garlic dressing. Can you eat tooo much garlic? I will let you know I haven’t found that edge so far!!

1 lemon juice, 4 crushed cloves of garlic, 1 tblsp hot mustard, 1 tblsp horesradish, 1/4 c agave syrup, maple syrup or honey, 1/4 sunflower oil and salt to taste

or you can add grated Piave vecchio or asiago cheese…then it it suspiciously close to the Caesar salad dressing. If you do that… what the heck.. add the anchovies!

And because we worked so hard… poppyseed squares! This is an easy recipe… let me know if you want it!

Life, my lovely, is good. Breathing in. Miracles.
