Today marks the last of my kids culinary camps for the summer. This one in the company of kids from ages 7-1/2 to 12 and what a week it has been!
We cooked everything from maple french toast to raspberry shortbread and had such a fun time. I've just had the sweetest kids at camp this summer so as much as I'm happy that things will calm down a little, I hope I'll be seeing them again.
Speaking of which, you've heard me go on and on about my summer so I will bore you no more.
It has however meant that some things have gotten wayside. As much as I try to believe I'm succeeding at juggling all the balls I've thrown in the air, lately it seems some have invariably fallen and rolled into a ditch somewhere.
This website is a perfect example of this. So here's me trying to get that ball up in the air once more.
Needless to say, healthful meals in a jiffy are pretty much a norm around here on busy nights. And these delightful roasted Cornish hens is a perfect example of just that!
This dish is inspired by a traditional French dish where the chicken is roasted with a similar blend of mustard and herbs and then finished with a thick topping of fresh breadcrumbs.
It's very much on point except for the fact that I've replaced the chickens with the cornish hens & altogether disposed of the bread crumbs. I mean who needs those anyway?
I'd rather have a mustard herb topping all glistening out of the oven over a crusty breading any day. Wouldn't you?
So I do hope you'll give these a go. Super easy to put together and quite delicious and refreshingly flavorful.
