I brined a whole chicken on Friday.
Then roasted it.
This is a big deal for someone who lacks culinary skills.
But for some reason, I wanted to brine and roast a chicken.
Enter Aunt D.
Everyone should have a sister in law like Aunt D,
who is a fabulous cook.
She talked me through the steps of brining.
Then the steps to roasting.
Then she probably hung up at laughed at me.
I wanted to be just like Amy Adams in the movie Julie and Julia (read the book…it’s even better!).
Instead, I think I came out looking more like Amelia Bedelia.
She made a date cake and instead of using dates (the fruit) she cut out squares of a calendar and added them to the cake batter.
Yep. That’s something I would do.
Actually, I did fine.
And the chicken was divine.
Brine, people. BRINE.
Alrighty then. I’m getting a tad carried away with the rhyme….
