Put the thought of 'this birds weights X pounds so I should roast it at X temp. for X amount of time' completely out of your mind.
Check the deep internal temp. of anything you're roasting especially meats until the temp. has reached a prescribed temp.

If they are Orthodox, bring a bottle of Kosher wine. It would be perfectly appropriate. Do you have a place to buy kosher wine near you? Tulips are also nice, but then you have to make sure to arrive before the candle lighting because they will not be able to touch the flowers after the that. Kind of long story to explain why.

Flowers are a lovely idea. Consider having them delivered earlier in the day which would give ample time to arrange, etc.

Yes, I can get Kosher wine. I was wondering about flowers because I know it is not appropriate to send/give flowers when someone dies. Thanks, Charlie, I knew you'd be able to help me with etiquette!

Quick suggestion needed

We do not brink flowers to the funeral or to the grave site. Nothing wrong with bringing flowers to the house.
P.S. Or do what Janet has suggested.

Although it has been a long cold winter, I'm going with the bottle of wine. Safe, easy.

I would have not covered them. I like the look and the taste of crispy skin.

Now that's interesting. I'm just off to Google to find out why.

G'night all.
