Making a roasted chicken with veggies! (A first for me)
Good Monday morning! Today I will be having a first. I am going to make a whole chicken with roasted vegetables for dinner. You may be thinking: So, what? What's the big deal? Well, I have never made a whole chicken before! I have made chicken cutlets, chicken tenders, chicken salad, chicken fried steak (which is actually not chicken at all), but NEVER a whole chicken! I has always scared me a little bit :-P
But today, I will tackle it...face my fears (so to speak).
I posted this on Facebook today to a friend: Yesterday we went to the Fresh Market to pick up several specialty ingredients I needed for the new dishes I am planning on making this week. As we were
shopping my husband turned to me and said, "So, you are going to make gourmet meals this week?" He looked like a little boy in a candy store...so CUTE! He was all excited! I have to say he is the main reason I am doing this. He likes to eat and I want to give him food he will enjoy!
So, here we go...I promise to report the good, the bad and the ugly...on this journey of COOKING!
Note the coffee mug in this picture...that was cup #2 this morning!
