The early evening news reported it as a "Late May Scorcher," and this was the temperature in the shade on our sun deck as I was starting supper preparations.
Summer time is here and so is BBQ time so I turned up the heat outside for 2 hours to roast this chubby little bird.
Now doesn't she just look so relaxed with her butt on a pop can filled with apple juice, garlic. rosemary and thyme. A good rub with some olive oil and herbs and she settled into her own tanning booth with a side of potatoes in foil to keep her company.
Now if that wasn't warm enough, I turned up the heat inside to bake a fresh rhubarb crisp. YUM!
A scrumptious meal enjoyed on the deck with a little breeze cooling down the day and an overhead fan for auxiliary air - ahhh! This will be our best dining space for the hot summer months ahead.
