Lane and I celebrated our 12th anniversary this weekend! We had dinner on the roof and then went out on the town -- or at least the neighborhood. I think Maureen Dowd put it well when she described the ideal husband. I was pretty naive and idealistic when I married an artist 12 years ago; I have to say, I got lucky. Lane is an ideal-for-me husband.
When we had delightful Luisa and Co. over for dinner a couple of weeks ago we roasted a whole chicken. We liked it so much we made it again this weekend. Marinate the chicken in beer and lemon slices for a few hours. Then split it down the middle (through the breastbone), brush both sides with olive oil, and salt and pepper. Grill breast-side down, piling herbs and lemon slices on top.
Before it burns, pull off the herbs and lemon, flip the bird, and then stuff the herbs under the skin (that was Lane's idea). Continue grilling until done.
Here I am waiting for Lane to work his herbal magic.
