We had dinner not that long ago at laV –– a gorgeous, modern French restaurant here in town with an impeccable kitchen staff. I don’t usually order chicken when I go out to eat but I had heard only good things about the one on the laV dinner menu. Juicy, wood-oven roasted chicken for two, served with Brioche croutons, tomatoes, arugula, and green olives … oh it was amazing. The good news was that we had eaten so much before the entree actually arrived, that when it finally did, we were almost full and I had to save room for dessert(s). This was perfect, for you see, it left us enough to take home and enjoy for lunch the next day. Ever since this meal, I have found myself craving those green olives. With red peppers and sweet potatoes at the markets, I decided to try a marriage of the flavors. Mediterranean Sweet Potato Stuffed Peppers swirling with feta cheese and a combination of black and green olives made for a dish hearty enough to satisfy us all minus the awesome kitchen staff. Anyone want to do some dishes? Will pay in food.
