Our dinner was simple, but still not ready on time (1/2 hour late). Figures. We did my favorite Ina Garten chicken recipe on a bed of vegetables. I'm going to say it: how come the chickens at the farmer's market don't come with giblets anymore??
We started by chopping onions, carrots, yukon potatoes, and sweet potatoes and putting them in our roasting pan with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Then you put the chicken on top and roast 1.5 to 1.75 hours. Remove chicken, and let rest before carving. The veggies get all caramely and delicious.
We weren't feeling up to homemade rolls, so pillsbury to the rescue!
Here's my plate before:
I just wasn't that hungry. Of course, I passed out at 8 pm, woke up at 1 am. I've been awake for an hour, so I finished off my plate with a glass of milk, and I'm hoping it will put me to sleep soon. Ugh.
