Ok it is roast chicken. The bird is soaking in salt water. The sides will be probably be a rice, quinoa and orzo pilaf, stuffing, carrots and/or broccoli or salad and gravy. Dessert will most likely be an apple crisp. Daughter wants corn bread but I'm not sure about that.

(The cat is beside himself!! LOL He LOVES chicken raw OR cooked. He is meowing and I swear I can see him trying to figure out how to get up on the counter, remove the bowl with the apples I put on the top of the bowl and the lid.)

Roast chicken dinner – chicken breast, legs and wings rubbed with herb butter (soft butter, poultry seasoning, dry thyme, dry rosemary, sage, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns) and under breast skin, cavity stuffed with ½ onion, celery stalk, carrot and home grown dry rosemary); I roasted the chicken in my stainless steel 5 ½ qt sauté pan with a round rack in it



Stuffing (celery and onion sautéed in butter (seasoned with , poultry seasoning, dry thyme, dry rosemary, sage, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns and ground dry porcini mushrooms, chicken stock and herb season stuffing )



Roast chicken, mashed potatoes (butter, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns, just enough sour cream and ½ & ½ to make it smooth and creamy), corn & carrots



And pan gravy (the rendered chicken fat from the roasted chicken, white whole wheat flour, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns, poultry seasoning and homemade chicken stock from the simmered neck and innards).





Dessert was apple crisp (granny smith apples, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, walnuts, pinch salt, Splenda brown sugar and melted butter) topped with blended butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pinch salt and uncooked rolled oats)



The pussy cat got the innards chopped in the blender then dry chow and broth added – he was happy happy!!
