Last Night's Dinner ~ Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes over Grilled Chicken

I know ~ you’re probably thinking grilled chicken is boring and dry.  Well, when grilled correctly, it’s very tender with a nice char, and Bill does this perfectly!




Generally, he dips the chicken breasts in a little lemon juice and sprinkles them with seasonings, salt and pepper, and our favorite spices.  

If a little thick on one end, pound it with a mallet until it has a uniform thickness.  Grill over high heat quickly, searing in all the juices.

While I leave the grilling to him, I’m on to making sautéed cherry tomatoes to top the chicken for added flavor and moistness… 



The little gems will be slightly charred, tender and savory-sweet.  Sautéing them brings out their natural sweetness and flavor.  They’re a perfect chicken picker-upper!

If you’ve never sautéed cherry tomatoes, give them a try.  It’s well worth it!

A Birthday for Grandpa with Classic Yellow Cupcakes

Grandpa needed help blowing out the candles on his birthday cupcake yesterday, so Matthew, came to the rescue! 



Bill loves cupcakes and so does our 6-year-old grandson, and this Martha Stewart recipe came to my rescue.



Bill's birthday is actually today ~ he’s having 2 days of celebrating.  It was going to be a day of golf with Bubba, but due to thunderstorms, that’s postponed for a sunny day; instead, it’s off to lunch later at a favorite Mexican restaurant. 

On with the cupcakes…

Who doesn’t like a cupcake!  These cupcakes are moist, delicious and full of flavor.  The recipe calls for a dozen cupcakes, I doubled it.  Yellow is Bill’s favorite with chocolate buttercream frosting.  Matthew opts for yellow cupcakes with buttercream frosting. 





 The options for decorating are endless, we like sprinkles here!




Believe me, these cupcakes disappear quickly!

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
