Tonight, I went full-force wife by roasting a whole chicken. Now, I am descent and pretty frequent cook, however, I do not eat that much meat, and as such, cooking large hunks of protein is still a little intimidating for me. I decided, however, that I just had to through myself into the project, and if I failed, be ready to order a pizza. It was not too difficult, but did involve a few attempts with the thermometer. Eventually, we got there. Here were the results:
|Chicken getting a salt and pepper shower|
|Chicken all trussed and ready to get its potato and carrot friends|
|"After" fresh from the oven|
|The real "After" where the chicken is plated and ready for dinner|
Yesterday I spent the evening reworking a bridesmaid's dress I wore as part of a wedding a few weeks ago. I took out the under slip, shortened the hem, adjusted some trim, and am planning on wearing it to a dinner cruise with my husband this weekend. So, stay tuned to see some before and after pictures of the dress tomorrow.
