You know, I usually pride myself on being a pretty good cook (Melissa B. notice my use of myself.) So tonight I decided to roast a chicken. My friend, Erin, an amazing cook herself, gave me directions, and they were pretty close to what was on the bird itself. So, I followed them EXACTLY. When I went to cut it at dinner time, it was still bloody (yuck!) So I let it cook longer. Still not done. Then longer, still not done. But the time the thermometer read what it should in the middle, it was burnt on the outside. Now, I don't blame Miss Erin, as I said she is quite a cook!
We had quite a throw together dinner tonight of leftovers. I had corn and sweet potatoes. I don't think I'll roast any chickens in the near future........sigh....it smelled wonderful!!
