(The chicken ready for the oven!)
When I read that the recipe said 40 cloves of garlic, I was like... What the?!!? But after I read on I realized that the cloves were to be cooked unpeeled making the flavour a little more subtle and not as full on. Once the chicken was cooked, the garlic cloves can be squeezed out of their skin and eaten and if you're a garlic lover... they were de-lish!!
Teamed with a swag of steamed veggies... this recipe was a winner!!
Now... for dessert! I had a quick flick through Donna Hay's latest magazine for some inspiration and as soon as I made it to her "homemade ice cream" page I was hooked! I am the BIGGEST sucker for ice cream and would eat it all day everyday if it didn't make my clothes too tight for my body! lol
I tried her caramel flavoured ice cream recipe and you know what? Donna Hay... you bloody genius! YUMMMM!!
I'd definitely recommend to check her latest mag edition out, if you do - try the ice cream recipes and tell me how you go! I'm thinking I'm going to go a little further with this basic cream/caramel combo and add some grated up peppermint chocolates, or maybe some honeycomb and other sweets for different flavours!
All this talk about food is making me hungry! I think it's time for dinner!!
Whats on the menu at your place tonight??
