Yesterday, Sunday, I bought and roasted a whole chicken with lemon and garlic stuffed into the cavity. I roasted it breast side down for the first hour in a stoneware covered roaster, and then I flipped the bird over for the last 30 minutes. This made the best chicken ever!
After the chicken cooled I pulled all the meat off (I’ll use for lunch meat and chicken pot pie), placed the bones back into a large pot filled it with water and added Wildtree’s vegetable bullion mix. A few hours later on low heat and I have a delicious bone broth which I can make rice and beans with.
Now on to my menu.
Monday: We have a favorite Mexican restaurant that we had a coupon for, so we invited Nana out to dinner.
Tuesday: Meat Ball Subs on hogi rolls
Wednesday: Chicken pot pie
Thursday: Beans and rice with tortillas
Saturday: Pizza (hopefully making this with my sourdough starter)
Sunday I’ll start this all over again.
After this week my sourdough starter should be ready for it’s first batch of bread. I am so excited for this to work but I am holding it lightly as this is my first starter.
The tower next to my starter are “sprouting trays.” These trays are currently sprouting alfalfa for salads, sandwiches or right out of the tray. I hope to have a post about sprouts when I am confident I know what I am talking about. 🙂
