Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

Big News!

I have been talking with my friend, who I will call High School Prom Queen, and she has been giving me cooking tips. She manages a family with three kids as well, volunteers, updates her household, exercises with me, teaches Religious Ed... all these things and she can still manage to create enticing, enjoyable, scrumptious meals for her family of five like pratically EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!

Sooo, in taking her culinary advice, I am going to attempt to pick out, and purchase, and take home, and de-gut, and wipe off, and pat dry, and lubricate and salt and pepper, and cook in a roasting pan (which I need to buy one of those too) a...

CHICKEN!

She says it's really easy.

PS... although I can't attempt this tonight because I've organized a neighborhood ladies' night out so while, I won't be in the kitchen whipping up a roasted chicken, I may have some funny stuff to post about all the Desperate Housewives and what happens when you get twenty of us together in a room at a restaurant with a two-hour open bar.

I am glad to see that you are still not on your hiatus. I enjoy reading your funny and entertaining antedotes on a daily basis. Have fun tonight! Your friend must be on ritilan(sp?) to be able to do all the the things you metioned! Remember that episode of desperate housewives!

I don't do whole birds. They freak me out. Boneless and skinless is the only way for me. Good luck molesting that chicken! Yeck!

Anon--believe it or not, I have NEVER seen a Desperate Housewives episode! I figure, why watch it when I'm living it! LOL. My friend will LOVE hearing that she's on ritalin now too!

Eatmis--I don't do bones either. Yuck.

Good luck! I don't cook. For the past 5 nights, since Hubs has been in England, I've been on my own. Not my idea of a good time!

OK, I'm always asking myself--why does she have time to cook? Why is her house actually decorated? Who actually climbed up there to put those matching pots on that really high shelf, anyway? Why don't I do stuff like that?

Answer to most such questions: Because I'd rather have written a book than roasted a chicken. Grocery stores roast chickens. Get your head out of that oven and WRITE! (You know you want too...)
