Lavender Chicken from a quiet life.  Do yourself a big favor and pop over to visit Jain for the recipe.   She is a very talented cook and fabulous photographer.  I was lucky enough to win the culinary lavender used in this recipe from Mary at a recent giveaway on her amazing blog, homeiswheretheboatis.  Pop over and see all of Mary’s wonderful creations too!  Thank you Mary!!

Thanks for visiting, I hope I’ve given you some menu ideas for October!

    Oh to be that organized…*sigh*… my method of dogeared and torn out pages and sticky notes is a little sad 🙂 Everything looks delicious Jenna, and I see several recipes above that I pinned to make too…so much food, so little time! Thanks for the reminder of Jain’s lavender chicken, I need to try it!
