Roasted Chicken

Roasted my first chicken the other day. I've always done pan roasted chicken breasts, and I was put to the test of doing a whole bird. I did use this recipe from Ina Garten as I needed to follow a recipe. Ive used her other recipe for a rib roast last Xmas that turned out amazing, Ina has simple and tasty recipes to use. So now that I know the basics are to roasting a chicken I can now add my touches to it... I think next time instead of roasting potatoes Ill do a mash and use more fennel.
The skin was so crispy and delicious!

Its kinda nuts that a whole chicken can be cheaper then just buying parts. this was a 4lb chicken and it cost 5 bucks.

Time Warping.

Man its been a minute! about a month and a half to be exact! I have compiled a few photos of whats been happening in that time period.I got a really SHARP new knife from Joe & Michelle (thanks guys!) Went back to Hawaii to celebrate the life of a Kenny Brimer. Had a few Swedes visit us for Halloween. A late in the game BBQ (Nov 13th) with some friends breaking in a new Apt. and Celebrating Fay's Bday.  Of course Turkey Day in which most of the cooking was shared I made mash potatoes and a big batch of Kale. The turkey was cooked by our new roomie Elska. She used a brine over night and it came out amazing, Quinn named her Turkey Lady, also she baked 2 pies...pretty much killed it....MVP....for sure. Having Elska live with us has been awesome, a great homie who loves too cook yummy food. Add couple of pork chops and marinated steaks later to this and we are at this point in time....

 Yep totally random and mix just like my life....and remember its always sweeter when you got bros to spend it with...
