Alphabe-Thursdays Sunny Summer Yellow!

For some reason the corn is obnoxiously large - I am obviously NOT a real photographer! LOL

Each week I spend quite a bit of time thinking about my posts - the Yellow Theme from Alphabe-Thursdays was no exception. I knew I was going to post something about food - seems like all I have been blogging about lately - I am inspired so much by all the wonderful REAL Food Bloggers, especially my Two For Tuesdays Co-hosts.

I am going to be honest for a minute - these ladies ROCK the REAL Food world, they are incredible chefs with talents and abilities that amaze me. I am definitely out of my league. But these amazing ladies let me play along - thanks!!!

So today for Alphabe-thursday I am going to showcase a meal I make - nothing fancy but a meal my family loves. It is full of sunny summer goodness and is best made with local organic (if possible) veggies and a local, free-ranged chicken.

We start with cantelope - fresh, cut and salted if you want.

We also have corn on the cob, slathered in buttah! Put sweetcorn in a pan cover with water, bring to a boil for a minute or two and shut off - it should be done! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Next we are having yellow summer squash - saute onion and garlic in a lot of butter for a bit then add sliced yellow squash and water. Cook low and slow in a covered pan until the squash is real soft. Add a big splash of RAW milk salt, pepper and a sprinkle of sugar if you like to sweeten it a bit. Cook on low until liquid is reduced.

Finally we are have Chicken Cordon Almost Bleu - I butterflied my chicken breast and then sliced them apart. I put ham and swiss cheese on top and rolled, skewering to keep together, I put them in a buttered dish and then topped with butter and sprinkled with g/f bread crumbs. I cooked them in a 425degree oven until the chicken cooked through - 35 minutes- (I did smash the chicken a bit, covered with good seran wrap and using my rolling pin)

That is our sunny summer yellow dinner - and boy was it delicious!

I know you all are disappointed my sous chef wasn't in the pictures - she was off catching butterflies at that time - oh, to be five again!

and Ann Kroekers Food on Friday!
