Post Turkey Blahs

It was late on Sunday afternoon, and my friend T had just gotten her last child back to where she needed to be after Thanksgiving when she called.

"What are you doing?"
"I'm just deciding what to cook for dinner."
"So, what are you cooking?"
"Aren't you going to invite us for dinner?"
"You don't need an invitation."

And so it goes.

After a little back and forth, we decided that  since T had all of the side dishes from Thanksgiving to accompany the chicken, John and I would go to their house with the main dish in tow.  I prepared Ina Garten's Lemon Chicken Breasts, instructed T to have the oven heated to 400 degrees, grabbed a bottle of wine, and off we went.

While the Martinis were being shaken, the chicken went into the oven, and T heated up the Apple Butternut Squash Soup.  Delicious.

What a nice way to end the holiday weekend.


  1. Ah, that's lovely - a dinner shared with friends. The chicken looks delicious.

  3. impromptu dinners like this can be some of the best. especially after all the work (fun that it is) of the Thanksgiving feast. great looking lemon chicken!

  4. Lemon chicken breasts, they look so good, especially with green beans. Yum. Can you tell I haven't eaten breakfast? ; )

  5. Thanks, ladies. Dinner with friends was the perfect way to end the weekend.
