So simple. So good.

Today we're having another Thanksgiving-style meal with all the fixings.

Yesterday we hit an Irish eatery (Tim's Irish), and we both ordered the Pub House Burger. From the bun, to the meat, to the side of chips (fries), the meal was delicious. Well worth the money and I can't wait to go back.

Then we hit a small whole foods market filled with goodies. Now waiting on my shelves are tons of fun ingredients to play with during the remainder of our Staycation Holiday. I even got stuff to make homemade marshmallows. How cool is that?

After the bookstore cafe, we hit Best Buy for Tim's big Halloween gift - a BluRay player. And get this, by waiting until yesterday we saved 71 smackers with coupons, discounts and online price adjustments. How cool is that? I know ... it's nearly as cool as buying ingredients for homemade marshmallows.

Meanwhile, dig this shot (click the chicken to enlarge). Note the liquid at the bottom.

I always add 125ml (a little over 4oz) of homemade chicken broth to the Pryex and a few spoonfuls inside the bird, just before roasting. Once done, that liquid makes an amazing base for gravy.

So simple. So good.

How about you? Eat anything yummy today? I'd love to hear about it.


  1. Wow, that bird looks amazing! What's the seasoning on top made up of? Looks deeeeeelish!!

  2. Hi Barmaid,

    For this guy, I used Spice Hunter's Organic Poultry Seasoning, Kosher salt, organic black pepper and extra virgin olive oil. Cooked in a Pryex with 125ml (a little over 4oz) of homemade chicken broth.

    180 Celsius, 350 Fahrenheit and Gas Mark 4 for roasting. Bird cooks 20 minutes per pound or until done.

    You can look at the seasoning bottle at this post: http://thehappywhisk.blogspot.com/2010/10/organic-mayo-for-cold-chicken-salad.html

    Enjoy and Happy Eating :-)

  3. That looks so great. I love the photo, too. Also, congrats on the big savings!

  4. Hi Christian - Thanks. Eat anything yummy today? What are you making for Nerd Sunday?

    Yes, 71 bucks cheaper, really worth the wait. Tim loves it. He's watching Spartacus now while I goof around in the Net.

    Happy Eating :-)
