One woman's foray into cooking for herself, for her family, and for her friends. It's not always picture-perfect, sometimes a little messy, but it's always delicious. Join me in exploring new recipes, savoring the "résultats" and learning from the "erreurs".
Sunday afternoon. The morning cloudiness and drizzle cleared and it's turned out to be a beautiful day. And the perfect Sunday evening meal is a roast chicken dinner. I prefer the high heat method of roasting. The chicken always turns out juicy and tender.
Of course, potatoes and gravy are a must when roasting a chicken. I had some red potatoes I quartered and boiled with a couple of cloves of garlic. When the potatoes were cooked, I drained them, smashed them with milk and butter, salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper, then stirred in a handful of chopped fresh basil. Delicious! And plenty of leftovers for tomorrow. Yay!
