It can happen to the best of us, though it shouldn't have happened to me. I bought marinated chicken thighs from Dines Farms, first spinach of the season from Migliorelli Farms and sweet potatoes from Whole Foods.
I grilled the chicken, which was fine since it came already marinated. I had little time to prepare the sides so I decided I would make mashed sweet potatoes and cook the spinach for a short time and drizzle with salt, pepper and olive oil.
Simple, right yet ruined. I undercooked the potatoes since I only sampled one piece; this made for lumpy potatoes. The spinach was still a tad gritty and needed something besides olive oil. Oh well, I always thought good ingredients speak for themselves, I guess I wasn't listening well enough tonight.
The chicken was the star of the show and as Izzy watched me grilling it he said, " I could eat a thousand pieces of that chicken." He also liked the lumpy potatoes. Too bad A. and I didn't.
