So, this was my first meal in a while. I haven’t been sick or anything like that, just super busy. My first meal since Sunday night – good times. Monday was book club and while we eat well, its not really a meal, Tuesday I had a recital, Wednesday I had the worst pizza ever and threw it in the trash – SO I was particularly happy with this simple yet delicious meal.
The hen is easy – salt and pepper inside and out – stuff cavity with 2 cloves of garlic and fresh rosemary. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. The mashed potatoes are easy too – boil potatos, mash with butter, garlic, cheese and whatever else you love to have in potatos. I served this with a nice green salad. It was a very satisfying meal to have after so many days, but I am pretty sure I would have enjoyed it equally well even if I had eaten meals more recently!
Since dinner we have been listening to helicopters and other emergency vehicles – there was a huge explosion at the sugar refinery here in town…wish the best for all the workers and their families…it looks to be pretty bad.
