Just Call Me Ina…
Sometimes I like to pretend I’m Ina Garten. I live in a fabulous house in the Hamptons, I walk barefoot to my abundant garden to cut fresh herbs and flowers, I make the most delicious food, and I have the most fabulous friends who are florists, boutique owners, drive the coolest cars, have beach barbeques, and drink wine with me at my second house. Oh, and I say the word fabulous a lot.
A girl can dream right?
With the fall weather in full force, I was inspired to make roast chicken. I always use Ina’s recipe for perfect roast chicken. It does indeed comeout perfect every time!
There’s only one problem… I made a seven pound chicken for me, Mr. Weekly Bite, and M.
