It’s dinner time!

Not to brag, but I really outdid myself for dinner tonight. My roasted chicken turned out perfect — the meat practically fell off the bone, and stayed juicy and flavorful. Brining the bird had a lot to do with it. I also made apple stuffing from scratch. The Wife loved it and we have about a pound of meat left over from a tender young fryer. A serviceable Pinot Bianco went well with the food while we sat on our outdoor screened porch and enjoyed the fact that the summer heat has broken by virtue of our weekend-long position underneat the cloud skirt surrounding Hurricane Katrina, currently moving towards Louisiana (where, oddly enough, I have to go on Tuesday). But I’ve had enough vino and good food that for the time being, I’m content to let the hurricane go where it’s going to go and adopt a zen attitude about my upcoming trip.

  1. Go on brag, you earned it. The bird was darn good and looked like those on the covers of cook books. Really folks, that good. Hubby’s kitchen concoctions almost always turns out this fabulos, so I’m used to it, but all the same KUDOS to my guy! Yum!
