26 October 2008
Fall is quickly approaching, and it is supposed to get below freezing here in Metro Atlanta tomorrow night. One of my favorite Fall herbs is sage, so I decided to try a Chicken Saltimbocca for tonight's Sunday supper. Saltimbocca is Italian for "jumps in mouth." You can make it with veal of chicken, so of course I used chicken for Jim. It also includes whole sage leaves and prosciutto. I left the prosciutto off of Jim's as well, but he does not know what he is missing! I served the saltimbocca with pan roasted asparagus, fluffy mashed potatoes and salt and pepper cream biscuits. For extra fluffy mashed potatoes,
I actually steam them instead of boiling them to keep them light and airy.
While cooking, I listened to Olivia Newton-John's epic recording from 1978: Totally Hot. Special thanks to my Facebook BFF, Kim Spencer, for reminding me that it was a great album! I think she was in her best "voice" – plus a great S&M album cover!
Nine days until the election and getting excited about the potential of a transformational change! So let's all eat, drink, be merry and vote early –
for Obama of course.
