Well, it has been a while and we have been feeling more and more guilty about it. So let’s get over the explanations and just say that we have been very busy and in the meantime managed to buy a house together, which of course is a great joy. One of the benefits is a a large greenhouse which we have used for planting a few vegetables of our own and thus the summer has presented us with tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, chillies and not the least squash and eggplant. The last two, like the rest is nearing end of season and so we harvest the last few for this nights dinner, Pollo alla Diavola. 
For a long time we have been leaning towards the organic chickens from Irma, but recently a test published in our newspaper rated the Løgismose free-range chicken available at Netto better than our preferred one and so of course we need to try it.
The recipe is one that K has tried hundreds of times and it has probably evolved a little over time. Initially the chicken is prepared. The back bone is cut out and the chicken is spread out butterfly-style.
The back bone and wing ends end up in a pot for stock.

A marinade is poured over the chicken to marinade for two hours:
zest and juice of 1.5 lemon
handful of sage leaves
one whole chili – deseeded if you're (a) chicken
3 cloves of garlic
about 1/2 dl of olive oil
salt and peper

The chicken is placed in the oven at 180°C for 45-60 min. Drip when you remember.
Add some liquid (wine, stock, apple juice) if it dries out.

We eat it with italian-style bread to help sponge up some of the good chicken marinade

The conclusion: the Løgismose chicken is the best! Moist and tasteful. Just delicious!

In the meantime we have taken our vegetables and cut them in slices a little less than a centimeter thick. These are then grilled on a pan and then placed on a platter, sprinkled with a good olive oil a little salt and inevitably some lemon zest.

We pick one of our last bottles of Podere 414 2008 Morelino di Scansano and momentarily consider entering the wine import business. To the best of our knowledge this cannot be purchased in Denmark and we definitely think it should. Overall we rate it 8/10 and with the food we arrive at 9/10, but we are also a bit happy on this evening
