I've not done much today its been a bad one have had a lot of pain and have felt like I am falling off my scaffolding everytime I move somewhere - but hey s..... happens, today's today tomorrow's tomorrow. So for the best part of the day I have read, and played games and really not done too much. I did however pull my finger out though and made a nice tea. I cooked home roasted spring herb chicken - a mixture of fresh herbs (i.e. thyme, chives, rosemary sage, bay leaf and some lemon verbena that were growing in my herb garden chopped up finely and some crushed garlic also added with butter. I stuffed half an onion in the cavity to keep it moist, whilst cooking and some fresh bay leaves too and cooked under foil for about 2 hours. I also cooked proper oven baked potatoes to go with the chicken. It was served with salad leaves, tomatoes, cucumber, spring onion coleslaw and beetroot and was very tasty. We then had more english strawberries with fresh cream for afters, Very tasty it was too.
The Chicken with the herb stuffing. Sometimes I put the butter mix inbetween the skin and the chicken too, but on this occasion I did not. I then added half an onion into the cavity to keep the chicken moist and a couple of fresh bay leaves and a sprinkle of olive oil just over the bay leaves so they don't burn.
Partly cooked chicken taken out and turned around so that the chicken colours evenly
Nicely coloured golden chicken which was lovely and tender
Its not going to be long before I hit the decks as I am shattered and my back is killing me.
Take care wherever you may be and I hope life is treating you well
