I used another one of my favorite shower gifts; my clay pot made by Scheurich-Keramik. It's excellent to use when making Calico Beans. It's even more amazing roasting a chicken! The chicken comes out incredibly moist and tender. No need for a knife, your fork will do just fine!
I didn't add anything to the chicken. I just put it into the pot. Covered and roasted for 1 hour and 10 min at 350 degrees. Look how beautiful that bird is! And I'm a Vegan!
I didn't follow any particular recipe for my Chicken Noodle Soup. I simply roasted a chicken. Used some chicken stock, frozen veggies, fresh rosemary, one leek, some corn we canned this summer, and egg noodles. I let that cook up in the crock pot for the afternoon and that was it.
But I really can't enjoy a steamy bowl of soup without warm homemade bread to go with it. C'mon who could, really!?
So I thought a loaf of Rosemary Olive Oil Bread would be a perfect addition to the meal.
That's some good looking dough!
We ALL devoured this! It was amazing!
I'm always amazed at the power of cooking. The smells, textures, sights....It's such a powerful thing, cooking.
You never know where a trip down memory lane will take you.
What are some of your fond wedding shower memories?
