Roast Chicken Dinner

On Saturday our friends C & D came over for dinner. With all the cold weather and snow we've been having we thought a nice roast chicken dinner would be the perfect meal.

I coated the chicken in a mix of butter, oil, rosemary and thyme and stuffed the cavity with smashed garlic cloves, pieces of lemon and sprigs of rosemary and thyme. The smell coming from the oven as it was roasting was intoxicatingly delicious.

To round out the meal I made mashed potatoes, finally breaking out the potato ricer I bought ages ago. It takes a little elbow grease, but the potatoes come out super creamy. I also steamed some green beans and we had two kinds of crusty bread and butter.

C & D brought a variety of pastries for dessert:

I'm not sure what each one is, but we cut these into four pieces and all were great.
Pin It!


  1. The shell shaped one is called Sfogliatelle- the white one is a Napoleon and Im not sure of the yummy looking chocolate one! MMMMMMMM They are all my favorites!

  2. Sgofliatelles and Napolians are my favorite pastries!!!!!!!!!!
