This week has been a little different. I've been having tooth pain and long story short is, I have an abscessed tooth. With this being late in the month and Christmas coming up the dental practice will be closing up shop for a two week period. So I need to hustle and try and get a root canal or decide to have the offending tooth pulled. Decisions....
This brings me to the reason we all need that easy meal prep so you get the big return on a great dinner with minimal effort. You can concentrate on other things, ideas or whatever you need.
I can never have enough chicken on the menu, so it seems. There is just so much you can do with a whole chicken and I chose to do the simplest thing - roast it surrounded by veggies. Just rub it down with olive oil and salt and pepper it. I also used roasted garlic powder.
The reason I thought of a roasted chicken verses so many other quickie meals is I read about it in my last book. It was presented as an excellent homey dinner and I knew I wanted that comfort food as soon as possible. This was from The Missing Years.
Obviously pick your own veggies & method.
I’ve made soup with the remainder and that hits the spot for lunch on a cold day. It’s 33 degrees here as I type in north Florida. Next year we will be somewhere warmer ...I hope.
Lots of plans for upcoming the new year, hoping for travel, hook up with a few foodie events, reading challenges and getting fit.
Wishing you and yours a lovey holiday if I don’t manage to get back on line to post.
