December 6 and so on...

A great thing about cold weather is cooking warm delicious things and having the house smell all yummy for days afterwards. Just makes me want to roast chickens all the time, you know?

We'll roast a chicken! A regular-sized one this time...
Mix up some chopped garlic, random herbs (maybe some pesto), olive oil, salt, pepper, a little bit of white wine... Loosen the chicken skin and start shoving the mixture in between the meat and skin. I've put quartered lemons and apples inside the chicken before, but today we have oranges, and so I'm wondering about doing that. Don't know for sure yet. Roast for 45 minutes to an hour covered with foil, then remove and roast the rest of the way (45 more minutes, about).

Roasted sweet potatoes, some kind of green veggie will accompany.

Most of the week...
Probably scrounging off extra chicken, eating random leftovers...

Beef (or maybe venison) stroganoff:
Brown meat, add onions, garlic, mushrooms, some extra beef stock, simmer w/ salt and pepper, stir in sour cream, serve over egg noodles.

And maybe, if we're lucky, candy canes for dessert this week! (If I remember to buy some)
