I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Fall.
And today was the epitome of a fantastic Fall day.
I look forward to this time of year, after the craziness of Summer weekends are over, and we spend time at home.
Of course, much of that time for Mr. KK is blowing leaves, cleaning the yard, and shoveling – yes, shoveling – acorns.
Much of that time, for me, is cooking.
My house smells amazing right now, having just pulled dinner out of the oven.
There's something about a warm kitchen, fragrant air filled with the aroma of dinner, and a glass of red wine.
On tonight's menu: Ina Garten's Perfect Roast Chicken.
And perfect, it was.
Stuffed with garlic, thyme and lemon, this chicken lived up to its name.
Crispy and golden on the outside. Juicy and delicious on the inside. And underneath? The most amazing caramelized vegetables.
I paired it with roasted potatoes and a fruity red wine.
Thanks again, Ina, for a fantastic meal. You never disappoint.
