N’s Birthday Lunch – 08/25/2013

My family came over for lunch today to celebrate my sister’s birthday.

Menu
Grilled Lemon Chicken with Rosemary
Tabouleh
Sauteed Corn with Leeks and Bacon
Whole Wheat Rolls

Chocolate Birthday Cake (a la mom)

Notes
There were 9 of us for lunch (6 adults; 3 kids).

I used boneless chicken thighs for the grilled chicken rather than a whole chicken. I skipped the slashing, kept the brine, skipped the smearing with paste and kept the post flip baste. The chicken was quite tasty. I think it is different enough from the original recipe that I’ll write it up at some point.

The tabouleh was good with a nice lemon taste. It needed a bit of punch though so maybe a bit of chile pepper next time.

The corn was great if I do say so myself. I’m very happy with the way it came out. Recipe to follow sometime this week.
