Dinner Saturday March 8--

I have decided to cook something I have not had in a long time. Roast Chicken. I picked up some leeks,golden potatoes, carrots. I'll be rubbing the chicken down with butter and seasoning with salt, pepper, garlic(a little) a few other spices as the mood strikes me.

I don't know why I don't make this more often but I bet it's been 10 years since I roasted one.

For dessert... Acai sorbet....

'scuse me, Jeff. Aren't you just a little ahead of the rest of us? Buck and I haven't even eaten Friday's evening meal yet.

It's a no-cook day. Going to a Zydeco Festival. Great food. Great music. I'm looking forward to it.

I am defrosting some thick pork chops which I'm going to quickly saute and then finish in a mushroom cream sauce, with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. I may make a cake since I'm snowed in today and I have PMS (God help my poor husband).

I love to roast a whole chicken and do it quite often, or maybe every two months or so. Love how it smells while roasting, love what you can do to it, love how it's easily absorbed into many more meals. I like to use my Romertopf ceramic roaster. They come out so moist.

Eating out so don't know what eatery I'll land in tonight.

Happy Saturday to you all..........
