2/15/2011 - Day 31 - Roast chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy & rosemary bread

Tonight we roasted up a chicken we've had in the freezer for a bit & mashed a big pot of potatoes. A simple & delicious dinner with the added benefit of LOTS of leftovers! We'll be eating this bird for the rest of the week!
I stuffed our bird with carrots, apple, & onion chunks, seasoned her with some fennel salt, garlic salt & some Italian Seasonings blend (contains rosemary, thyme, oregano, & parsley). Roasted at 350 degrees breast-down for about 45 minutes, then turned her over & finished roasting until the meat thermometer said she was done (about 45 more minutes). Then I made a simple gravy from the pan drippings, water, & flour. Served with a big green spinach salad that DBF whipped up. Delish!

I also wanted to give you, my Dear Readers, a glimpse into the Sustainable Eating Project dining experience. 

Ninja Salt & Pepper shakers DBF gave me for Xmas always accompany our meals

Fragrant orange roses grace our table this week in honor of Valentine's Day
Sapphire (aka Sapphy-Cat) usually joins us at some point during dinner as stealthily as possible to avoid human detection ;)
