My parents invited us over for dinner on Saturday and since the weather is decidedly fall these days my mom thought a roast chicken dinner with all the fixings sounded like a great idea. Here are the two beautiful birds she stuffed and roasted:
But I'm getting ahead of myself. We started with some snacks while we had drinks, including sundried tomatoes and mozzarella on little toasts:

SP made his amazing, buttery biscuits:

This was one fantastic meal! The chicken couldn't have been more tender or juicy and all the sides were delicious. This was a good trial run for Thanksgiving since we have pretty much the same meal on that day as well.
