From Daryl aka Avery
This past week, I have had two long (delightful) weekends of family plus a new doggie in our lives. Oh, yes, and a major cold hit me.
I needed something easy to make for dinner. I mean easy. My character Jenna, in the Cookbook Nook mysteries, needs recipes that use only five ingredients. She's not much of a cook yet. I am, but that doesn't mean I don't like simple.
When life comes at you fast, go simple! New slogan. :) You know what I mean. Return to the recipes you can make with your eyes closed. The ones you can tweak if you like with extra herbs. The ones that look pretty and fill the house with a fabulous aroma. To me, other than sweets--which always do the trick--the aroma of roast chicken or turkey just make me calm. So, today, in an effort of keeping it simple…
I'm sharing roast orange chicken.
But, first, more pictures of Sparky.
By the way, I had NO idea a puppy could chew so much!
Okay, that's a lie. Yes, I did, but honestly, wow! Chew, chew, chew.
It's endless. Unless, of course, he's sleeping…or wanting to play ball, or wanting to play hide and seek behind the bushes because he found something yummy to stick in his mouth and doesn't like mommy's tone about dropping whatever the heck it is.
Oh, wait, that's not Sparky. Yes, the little one (Tyler) wanted to see what it was like to live a dog's life.
Sparky especially likes the pant legs of little helpers in the kitchen.
|He also likes being under things. He will soon outgrow this stool!|
ROAST ORANGE CHICKEN
Squeeze the orange juice over the chicken and put the orange in the chicken cavity, too. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and rosemary (crushed).
Does anybody have a good cold cure???
