All the descriptive adjectives--pretty, sparkling, fluffy have been exhausted this winter, enough already. I feel like we are living in a shake 'em up snow globe, no sooner does it settle than Mama Nature sends another blast our way. I am tired of white and annoyed when it sidelines my plans as it did, confining me to home and hearth. I did not venture out to drive in the winds with limited visibility nor was I tempted as there were reports of the potential to slide along the roads if the plows had not already been through..
It was a day to stay home and a good day to cook. It has been quite some time since I stuffed and roasted a chicken because for the two of us, it's preferable to stick with chicken parts, breasts or thighs and occasional drumsticks although wings are a great snack. However the market had these chickens on sale, very cheap and with my purchase of two bottles of wine I got $2 off any poultry, bringing the cost to $1. So I picked up a whole chicken Friday intending to do something with it over the weekend. Those intentions did not materialize but Monday's snow day was an opportune time to stuff and roast this bird. Jerry is not a fan of what he refers to as "sea gull" although he grudgingly eats the day's menu; I am a big fan of chicken, amd roasting filled the house with wonderful scents.
