Chicken is one of my most favorite things to eat besides crab legs. I know the two dont even seem in the same ball park but that says a lot about chicken. I want to thank everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes and special shout outs to "tony" and to "jessi" as it turns out we share a birthday!
A super shout out goes to Kenny in Hong Kong who was ever so kind as to send me a card and two cookbooks. It is this kind of generosity that is hard to measure. Thanks so much Kenny, I have already picked out a couple of appetizers that I am going to attempt. Next to Kenny's books are a bottle of truffle oil and another Julia Child cookbook (that makes two for me now) that I received from the lovely Banana, who is always thoughtful.
Rosemary chicken with garlic and a baked potato served with a side salad of cucumber and sour cream.
I went mushroom hunting and found some more chicken mushrooms (orange on the left) oyster mushrooms (center) and a bolete. I was inspired by the maitakes (hen of the woods) that I saw here and thought my 'spot' might have some but alas no, it was a little dry, so I am hoping in a couple more days since I found so many last year at this same time.
