Sunchoke Chips and a Book Review #SundayFunday

Sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem Artichokes. are a tuberous vegetable from the sunflower plant that can be served in much the same fashion as any other root vegetable.  I chose to slice these thinly and fry them up for a snack.


This makes a perfect Sunday Funday snack that you can fry up and enjoy while curled up with a good book.  I recommend The Black Swan of Paris by Karen Robards..........

So I am gastronomically visiting Georgia today.  The Country not the state.  I made a traditional dish called Mtsvadi (grilled pork skewers) and paired it with wine made from ancient grapes.

Balsamic Braised Chicken Breasts #ImprovCookingChallenge

Quickly braised in a mixture of tomatoes and balsamic vinegar, these chicken breasts remain juicy and tender.  I served mine over pasta but it would be delicious with rice too or just a side salad if you are watching your carbs.


This is the dish I'm sharing for this month's Improv Cooking Challenge.......
