Placed under the skin, seared on the pan, and then roasted in the oven, it turned out a delicious and tender chicken.

I loved the spinach Gorgonzola filling adapted from “The Great Meat Cookbook” by Bruce Aidells, so much couple that I decided to make a tiny batch for last night’s using chicken instead. It was fantastic.

For dessert, the adults had strawberries with sugar and red wine. The last time I enjoyed it, I was still living in Paris. I remember enjoying it with my nonna often. Refreshing and tasty.

On a different note.

A couple of nights ago, when I posted the flank steak with the spinach and gorgonzola, I forgot to mention Mr. Aidells as the book’s writer.

Forgetfulness on my part as I wake up too early in the morning to write. Mr. Aidells contacted me.

Not only was he very kind and forgiving of my omission of his name, but he also gave me a couple of pointers on how to butterfly the meat better.

I am still on cloud nine, considering that my little blog was read by an author and contributing editor of such a caliber.

Now back to life, wishing everyone a great day.
