I planned a haphazard dinner -- I was thinking fried chicken and my favorite roasted butternut squash ravioli. Coconut cupcakes and Brussels sprouts were late entries. Damn, I forgot to list the dressing, just like I forgot to put it in the oven before 6. It was from the Thanksgiving batch.
So when I got home from church, I had good intentions. I made my ice cream base (more about that in another post). I roasted my butternut squash, I brined the chicken. By then, it was nearly dark and what little enthusiasm I had for cooking left with the sunlight. What's a girl to do?
Ta-Daaaaaa! All the flavors of the ravioli without making pasta by hand.
Garnish with toasted pecans, rosemary and sage. Delicious!!!
One final note. I have an announcement to make. I believe in pretty chicken!
I'm going to kick back now and finish my glass of screw-top wine. (I'm running a quality establishment over here.)
Merry Christmas, y'all!
