Tuesday: Barbeque Chicken, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and corn on the cob

Yummm.... This was a fantastic meal! The barbecue sauce was amazing!!! Since we have been doing a lot of shopping at the farmer's market lately, I have been using a new cookbook: "Simply in Season" by Mary Beth Lind and Cathleen Hockman-Wert. I have checked it out from my local library, but I will most likely end up buying it. It is FANTASTIC! All of the recipes in the book are categorized by season- based on what produce is available at the time. It is such a fun book!

Here is what you need for the barbecue sauce:

1 lb chicken (I used boneless, skinless- but you can use bone-in also)
1/3 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Step 1:

Saute' onion until tender

Step 2:

Stir in the rest of the sauce ingredients and simmer, uncovered for 15 min.

Step 3:

Put chicken in a 9x13 pan and pour sauce over uncooked chicken.

Step 4:

Bake at 350 degrees, 45-60 min. Every once in awhile, pull the chicken out and re-baste.

Place on a plate, cut slices and pour extra sauce over the chicken. Enjoy!!!

Now time for the corn and potatoes! First I cooked the corn, then I pulled the corn out with tongs when it was done and used the already boiling water to boil my potatoes. It worked nicely!

Shuck your corn, then place in boiling water for 10 min.

Pull out with tongs, place on a nice plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Wash and then peel your potatoes

Dice and place in boiling water until tender (about 10 min.)
Put 8 oz. creamed cheese, 3 TB butter and 3 garlic cloves in your mixing bowl

Add your potatoes, a bit of milk and mix. Add more garlic, salt and pepper to taste.

Put it all together and you have a delish summer dinner! I was able to buy the corn, potatoes and peaches for the cobbler at my local farmers market.

Get out there and support your local farmers, if you aren't doing so already!
