A tribute to summer

It’s only right to dedicate this blog to Donna Summer, the legendary disco and dance singer and song writer who passed away yesterday. This quick and easy summer-time dinner requires very little work, and a little bit of waiting.

The drumsticks were soaked in Chiavetta’s barbecue marinade for about three days before being slow cooked on the grill. The corn on the cobb is a no brainer and wasn’t half bad considering its not local nor is it in season.

The side dish is Wegmans Golden Jewel Blend, which is a combination of Israeli couscous, tri-colored orzo pasta, split baby garbanzo beans and red quinoa, cooked according to the directions. For color and flavor, I also added peas, fresh oregano, purple onion, pepper and sundried tomatoes with Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes with zesty peppers right when the water began to boil, along with the packet of grains. This is a quick, nutritious and delicious staple in my summer time fare.
