my inner ina

we were at the beach last week enjoying our last vacation of the summer. it never fails, while i'm away from home, i always come back really inspired to tackle projects, rearrange rooms in my house, and mostly... meal plan. my enthusiasm usually fades the moment i walk in the door and am faced with unpacking, starting laundry, a pantry and refrigerator completely empty. this time was different...  i decided that i wanted to start cooking ina garten recipes, mainly to learn her techniques and feed my family really delicious meals. my grandmother is here for the week so i thought it would be perfect timing to welcome her with my first ina recipe... Garlic and Lemon Roast Chicken.

this chicken was so delicious that i went out today and picked up another one to take to a friend and her family for dinner. she just had surgery and who wouldn't love a good comfort meal? I paired our dinners up with ina's green bean gremolata  and the mashed potatoes that i make for every holiday, my make ahead mashed potatoes.

the left over chicken went into tonights chicken enchiladas. i love when dinner works out that way! let me know if you try the recipe! you'll be so glad you did!
