Sunday Market

My second trip to the farmer's market yielded even greater treasures--a freshly roasted rotisserie chicken. As I walked down the market, the aroma of chicken roasted in its own drippings was unbearably delicious and I knew I had to try one. These chickens were small and petit--not like the large birds in the US. They were the perfect size. Thus, I composed a nice little lunch around the chicken.

Paired with some crusty buttery croutons, fresh tomatoes on the vine, and a glass of red wine, it made a wonderful and easy lunch. 

To go along with the chicken, I shelled some peas and sauteed them in butter. They were tender and sweet and extremely delicious, and very french ;)

Les Petits Pois

The next day, the left over chicken breast made a refreshing and tasty salad.
