I picked such a great day to roast chicken in the oven - I should have just strapped the chicken to the top of my car and it could have cooked by the time I got to their house! While the chicken was in the oven, I prepared our starter while we chatted.
The basil in my garden is growing beautifully but I need to remember to keep using it so that it doesn't go to waste. It wasn't until after we'd finished that I realised that in my haste, I had forgotten to drizzle some olive oil over the bread and add a sprinkling of cracked black pepper. Ah well, it tasted just as fresh and we had some chilled white wine to wash it down with.
Ling threw the corn in with the chicken for the last ten minutes or so and they were cooked perfectly!
