And so, a moment to remember his divine work:
|Deviled Eggs with Bacon, Scallions and Cherry Tomatoes|
|Roasted Chicken and Sauteed Swiss Chard with Onions and Bacon|
|Roasted Beets, Carrots, and Potatoes|
|The Cheese Course, courtesy of Prairie Fruits Farm|
|Strawberry Custard Pie|
The roasted chicken was the gift that kept on giving; a few days after Easter, I made a ridiculously easy and delicious chicken and dumplings recipe that I found here. And I got fourteen cups of homemade chicken stock by simmering what was left after that.
As thoughts turn to spring and summer, I'm finding myself feeling somewhat uninspired...time to get my hands on a new project or a new cookbook...or perhaps to start planning the vegetable garden. I'll keep you posted.
