Chicken Rosemary Burgers- I haven't broken out the outdoor grill yet, so I made these inside tonite, they're awesome! Chicken Burgers I skipped the salt in the ground chicken mix, doubled the pepper and garlic. Added some sliced purple onion, lettuce, chips and veggies. Yummers!
1 round loaf of Italian bread, crusty outside, about 10 inches in diameter
4 slices of Genoa salami and provolone cheese
1 cup black olives, chopped
1 cup of green olives with pimentos, chopped
1 tbl. tiny capers (also good without)
1/3 roasted red bell pepper, diced
2 tsp. garlic, minced
1/4 cup diced celery with leaves
2 tbl. red wine vinegar
6 pepperoncini peppers, stems removed, chopped
2 tbl. chopped flat leaf parsley
pepper to taste
2 tbl. olive oil
Begin by making your olive salad first. Chop and mix everything in a bowl, then store in sealed container in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Slice the Italian round loaf horizontally, then remove some of the interior of the bread to make a nice scooped out area. My chickens love the soft bread! Place a generous amount of the olive salad on the base of the bread. Then layer the the slices of salami, then the provolone cheese, then add a layer of olive salad on top, placing the top of the bread on top. Push down slightly, then wrap tightly in foil or plastic and refrigerate for at least an hour. Don't skip this step! When ready, cut into half and serve! Makes about 4 serving, depending on how hungry you are. I serve with chips and veggies. I served it recently to guests and they RAVED, because it's not heavy, but very bright and filling. Perfect for a hot day!
I also got this, at a local thrift store, for $1.50. A little lighthouse light, to go on my "sea table" I put out in the summer. I'll add some paint on the white, tall tube, and a silicone bulb, and nestle it inside something.
I got these for a buck each at a craft store. The one on the left is unfinished, the right is painted. The other one will be navy blue for 4th of July, and summer in general. I also got a wonderful, like-new Eddie Bauer stone colored denim vest for next fall/winter, $3.00. :) Summer's coming, only 2 more days of school for me!!!
