What I Made Today!

Today seems like a very productive day! I made...

Haricot Vert (Green Beans) with Roasted Garlic...

1 Bunch Haricot Vert (french green bean that is much smaller and consistant in size)
6 cloves Garlic
1/4 C olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

In foil place garlic, oil and a pinch of salt, close tightly and throw it in the oven 325 for 30 minutes. Heat salted boiling water, and cook green beans for 3 minutes, then add roasted garlic, and salt. Call it a day. I hate recipes that have too many ingredients and take longer than 10 minutes.

Pan Roasted Boneless 1/2 Chicken...

Ok well I butcher my own chicken, but you probably won't so just ask a butcher to do it for you. Rinse and dry (it is important to dry because otherwise the oil will spit at you, and that is really painful)

Salt and pepper the outside of the chicken, place in a cold saut pan with oil and chicken skin side down. Turn on medium high heat. This will brown the outside and once it is all golden brown flip it over and put it in an oven at 325 for 20 minutes!

Mary's Secret Mac and cheese.

If I told you it wouldn't be secret any more!

Happy Cooking!
