August 24, 2015 Dog Days of Summer
To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds, and watch their renewal of life, this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfactory thing a man can do.
-Charles Dudley Warner
Actually, the saying ‘the dog days of summer’ is a celestial reference and not to do with doggies but this warm and muggy weather (for San Diego) reminds me of the saying. And the crops react too. Our sweet lettuces want to go to seed and the newly planted broccoli and cabbages just sit there. So we’re in a little bit of a holding pattern with diversity in your deliveries. If you still have carrots from last week, here are some yummy ideas.
Moroccan Chicken and Carrots
Chicken thighs 3T olive oil, divided 1/2 t each ground cumin, coriander and cinnamon
1 tsp kosher salt, divided 1 bunch carrots, cut diagonally 1/2 c golden raisins
1/2 c marcona almonds or whole blanched and toasted almonds
Preheat oven to 400. In bow, mix chicken with 2 T oil, spices and 1/2 t salt.
Heat remaining T of oil in heavy pan suitable for oven over med-high heat on stove top. Cook until crisp, about 4 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add carrots to pan and cook, stirring often, until starting to soften, about 4 min. Add raisins, almonds and remaining salt. Set chicken skin side up on top of carrots. Roast until carrots are browned and chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Serve with brown rice.
