This was easy and unplanned. A true case of “what’s in the fridge.” Luckily I still had some goodies from Sunday’s farmer’s market to get things started. And some chicken thighs for the protein. I began with some nice summer produce of corn and yellow squash, coupled with some portobellos and red pepper, then a … More Simple Summer Sautée
I couldn’t decide what to grill between chicken thighs or pork tenderloin. So what’s the answer? Both, of course! That’s usually the best answer. And veggies to accompany, kabob style.

It’s definitely fine dining … More Charleston, South Carolina: Part 2 (Fine Dining, Fresh Breakfast, and Walking)
