we went to a street fair in times square today, so as we were leaving dinner was a toss up between the russian tea room and my wife's favourite italian joint Puttanesca, Italian Restaurants in NYC .

i lost the coin toss, so we had italian.

we started with insalata verde and insalata di barbabietole.
next was penne in an anchovy sugo, then squid ink tagliatelle fra diavolo, and ossobuco.
for dessert, espresso and a port wine poached pear with vanilla ice cream.

Roasted a 5 1/2 lb fresh free range chicken ... bought at an organic farm not far from home, farm processed (killed and cleaned) on Sat morn. aromatics in cavity, root veggies added to roaster. 1 1/2 hrs at 325*F in convection oven.

Bird was spectacular...real flavor, pan drippings made awesome gravy ... veggies were wonderful (yukon golds, parsnips, carrots, shallots)

Contrary to my norm, I made dressing outside the bird ... fresh breadcrumbs from 1/2 a loaf of rustic Italian I had in the fridge, thyme and sage, sage sausage, onion celery, a cup of brown rice (leftover), broth, s & p. Drizzled with some of the chicken fat from the bird and baked covered. Came out very well.

This was kinda a dry run for Thanksgiving as I've ordered my turkey from the same farm.

So good!

Last night, we had heated-up leftover pork chops, fresh homemade applesauce, savory onions from a recipe in the cookbook that came with my new Advantium microwave/oven, and baked potatoes, also cooked in the Advantium.
