Roasting a chicken and it smells YUMMEROO!
OK… it’s only about half way through… what I am really smelling is the garlic I put all over it.
I PLANNED on getting out of work, getting to the store and coming home, getting a 3 pound chicken in the oven for an hour then taking the cleaned carcass and turning into soup.
What I DID was get out of work much later than I wanted… go to the store and take WAY more time than I expected because of “tax free weekend” crowds.
End up with a 5 pound chicken, because there was no 3 pound chicken.
Get home 45 minutes later than expected with 45 minutes more chicken roasting to do…
So CLEARLY I am not making soup tonight, but the chicken will at least be cooked, and I can chill it overnight and clean it tomorrow and make soup then.
This is the excitement of my life.
Actually, I find the chicken soup pretty exciting because it means I have lunches for every day next week 🙂
Chicken, turnips, carrots, green beans… SOUP!!
Tomorrow… a trip to the farmers market… and the Harris Teeter is having some really great sales on meat… in GIANT packages, so I’ll have to spend some time cutting and bagging for freezing.
Sunday taking the nephews to see the Ice Age movie… should be fun.
Followed by…. DRAGON BUFFET! Oh how I love my Chinese Food!
I’ll be sure to post a review of the movie – it’ll give me something to talk about besides FOOOOOOD!
