For tonight we're having Seafood Lollipops with Remoulade Sauce; Garlic Mashed Potatoes; Red Onion Marmalade.
Lots of baby greens left over from last night, so I'll just toss them with some capers, cut up olives, gorgonzola, and a little evoo. A little fresh-ground black pepper to kick it up.

We had barbecued chicken breasts along with a nice fresh cucumber and tomato salad with Italian dressing.
We used chicken breasts we bought at Costco.
Is it me? Am I the only one that thinks the Perdue chicken breasts as large as a elephant?
We can't buy the Perdue breasts because they feed three and there are only two of us. I'm talking about the bone-in breasts and not the boneless skinless ones, which seem to be okay in size.

We try to avoid Perdue, Old Bay. I don't care for the color or taste of it. And I try to stay away from the pre-packaged stuff from any brand as much as possible. Since Fresh Mart opened in Lexington, it's easy to do.
But I think you're right about sizes. At Fresh Mart I get the skinless and boneless whole breasts, and they're monsters. A half breast certainly feeds the two of us, even after it's trimmed down.
What I do is cut away the "tenders", using that strip of silver skin as a guide. These pieces are reserved for other uses---maybe a chicken salad, maybe chicken a la king, whatever.
What's left of each breast half is more than enough for supper. Most of the time, Friend Wife takes the balance for lunch the next day.

Tell us about Fresh Mart. Is it an organic market, a grocer with conventional/organic (ala Whole Foods), or the current thin with conventional grocers stocking organic?
Incidentally, I have an Uncle that works for a company that supplied some from somewhere to someone the supplied Perdue, and he says the color is from marigold petals mixed into the feed. That's natural, at least to me.
