Lazy Saturday

After waking up early for my haircut appointment (I did something totally different and I love it!) and running some errands, I spent the better part of the afternoon watching cooking on TV and dosing on the couch with my cat. At some point I looked out into the backyard and saw this guy:


... just hanging out chewing on some grass. I don't know how long he was out there but he didn't move until SP went out to set up the grill. Am I crazy or is this an exceptionally fat rabbit? This is probably a weed:


... but it's the only sign of spring that's managed to survive the recent burst of cold weather we've been having. I was so excited when temperatures were in the 70s earlier this week and now we're back to the 40s and winter coats.

For dinner we decided to grill despite the cold. We marinated chicken breasts in garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and then grilled them.


Once the chicken came off the grill I topped each piece with some bacon and two slices of provolone cheese and ran them under the broiler. I also made a garlic and lemon mayo for the sandwiches. In an effort to be healthy, I made some of that garlic broccoli we had the other day with the pork chops. Spicy and garlicky and still slightly crisp, it was the perfect side dish.
Pin It!

  1. They're not weeds - they're called harebells here (UK) :-)

  2. I love your chicken burgers! They always look so tasty and I am obsessed with garlic too, so I have to give this a go! That bunny does look rather fat, but it would be such a novelty to have one in my yard! Over here we've just got flea-ridden feral hares!

  3. Anon - thanks! They look like miniature hyacinths to me so even if they had been weeds I wouldn't have pulled them up.

    Katie - we do love a good chicken sandwich. They're so easy to make and yet so flavorful.

  4. The flowers are grape hyacinth, also known as Muscari armeniacum. Mom

  5. Thanks, Mom!

    It was a great dinner. I really wish I'd been able to photograph it.
