Kade came out and said "Yum, my favorite chicken." He likes the legs because he gets to play around with the bones. (I usually can't get the leg to come off with the meat intact and if I do the thigh comes along with it.) He checked out the chicken then said, "I don't see the head." I told him that the head gets cut off before it goes to the store. He replied, "Now that is gross." I had a good giggle. He's still willing to eat the chicken though. I cooked early today. I made corn bread muffins and sweet potato casserole to go with it. I'll cook some green beans to go with it. Can't wait for dinner time.

I wanted to share a picture of one of my favorite kitchen appliances. I don't use it that often but when I do I love it. It's the George Foreman Contact Roaster. (It looks like it's no longer available but there's something like it, if you're interested.) We got this several years ago with a Foreman Grill. Did not like the grill. We sold the grill and kept the roaster. The thing I love about it is not the so-so easy clean up but that I can put a chicken in it, set the timer for about 65 minutes, and walk away. When the timer beeps I know I have delicious falling off the bone chicken. Sometimes I fancy it up with seasonings or put fruit inside it. I'd love a good marinade if anyone has one without garlic. I have learned to put the chicken in breast down and it's even juicier.
