Are you getting the most out of your cottage weekend?
- If it’s Friday afternoon and you’re stuck in a check-out line instead of beating. That. Traffic … you might not be getting the most out of your cottage weekend
- If you’re stopping for groceries on the way up when the kids are asking over and over, “Are we there yet?”… you might not be getting the most out of your cottage weekend
- If you’re driving into town to on Saturday because you forgot the hotdog buns … you might not be getting the most out of your cottage weekend
- If you’re prepping and cooking when everyone else is on the deck enjoying an afternoon libation … you might not be getting the most out of your cottage weekend
- If you’re hauling unused groceries back home again, only to become goo in your fridge by the following Friday … you might not be getting the most out of your cottage weekend
- If the cycle of prepping, cooking and cleaning for your guests gets in the way of YOUR weekend too … you might not be getting the most out of your cottage weekend
- If you like a variety of cuisines and exploring great food but one pan, one pot and one BBQ just won’t do the job … you might not be getting the most out of your cottage weekend

Here’s a great tip for an easy grilled chicken that you can prepare ahead on Thursday night to take for your weekend dinner. A flattened chicken will cook more evenly and quickly on your grill.
You will need: One chicken, about 3 pounds. Your favourite marinade or spice rub. Two freezer bags.
- Turn a whole chicken breast side down.
- Cut through the chicken from neck to tail, along one side of the back bone. Use a heavy knife and cut through the rib bones or use heavy kitchen shears.
- Turn over the chicken and push down on the breast bone with two hands to flatten the chicken.
- Rub your favourite spice blend all over the chicken, both sides
- Slide the chicken into a large freezer bag.
- Or, bag the chicken first and then add your favourite marinade
- Close the bag while pushing out the air then put the bag into a second bag to ensure no leakage.
- Keep in your fridge and cooler until you get to the cottage. Keep cold until ready to grill.
- Cook on medium indirect heat until thoroughly cooked, then finish over a flame at the end to crisp the skin.
