It’s the end of the summer, and the temperature is getting colder but my terrace garden is still thriving!I just picked a dozen more Roma tomatoes and my herb garden is still full and luscious. I love my rosemary bush so much and I will definitely bring it inside for the winter. I think it will do well beside my Aerogardens. The light they provide should be enough for the rosemary bush.

It’s no secret that rosemary is one of my favourite herbs to work with. Rosemary is delicious with chicken and it pairs so well with lemon, and since I was due for a chicken wing recipe (yes, I still have trouble finding chicken wings at the grocery store lately) I thought, what a better way to use the rosemary lemon combination.

Simply marinate the chicken wings (overnight is always better). Add the flour to the mix and bake in the oven for a crispy outside and juicy inside chicken wing. I serve these with a fresh garden salad, but any side of your choice is fine by me!
