Day Ate

On the eighth day of Christmas we ATE a lot of food! I roasted my first chicken ever... and almost died.

They were BOGO at Safeway a few weeks ago so I stuck this one in the freezer. I made tomatillo chicken with the other one but made Jake cut it up because I didn't want to touch it. Well, I decided that it was time to get tough and roast this sucker. Just touching the skin had me all gaggy. I rinsed it off and discovered that there were body parts inside of the thing. I almost lost it. I was getting all sweaty and queasy. I didn't want to touch them so I turned the bird and shook it until the parts fell out.

I had to dig pretty deep to get tough enough to rub the chicken down with olive oil. I seasoned it up and then roasted it.

It was totally delicious. I was so proud of myself. I even made homemade mashed potatoes and gravy.

Then we went to the Webb's annual bunco party and ATE so many goodies. We had a blast and I'm pretty sure it was the best bunco party yet. They always have a white elephant gift exchange and Jake ended up with an air horn. Sweet. 


  1. You dumping your bird and shaking it until the parts fell out made me laugh so hard!!! I love you "turtle" :) :) :) lol

  2. That looks delicious. And i guess we know who our friends are now...
