Best meal of the summer: Fried Chicken with Poblano Mashed Potatoes and Chorizo-Thyme Gravy and Roasted Corn with Manchego & Lime

Single Rose

This post is a little different than usual and I don’t have any pictures of the food so I’ve substituted a few of my birthday flowers.  I had dinner with a friend recently and she made the most wonderful food I just had to recommend the recipes!  As we’ve pretty much established, I’m a picky eater and not too fond of anything beyond meat and potatoes and pasta so this is a real surprise.  Having seen the recipe I’m sure I would have never tried it as it has some ingredients I’m not used to and it does take some time and effort, but the Fried Chicken with Poblano Mashed Potatoes and Chorizo-Thyme Gravy from Epicurious.com which she served, along with their recipe for Roasted Corn with Manchego & Lime was absolutely wonderful and I fully intend to make it myself.  Everyone at the meal loved it and we all took home leftovers, which didn’t last long at our house!
