Bundled Up

The other day while stranded because of the 1st snow, Kevin and I decided to walk down to Safeway to get some essentials before the 2nd snow hit.  We made sure to bundle up.

Who knew a turtleneck sweater could double as a face mask?!
We picked up a whole chicken to roast because we had a ton of veggies that needed to be used up.  In the veggie bed above:  carrots, parsnips, onion, celery, garlic, shallots, and a sweet potato.  We added about 2 cups of chicken broth and a bunch of thyme and rosemary.
We stuffed the bird with 1/2 lemon, garlic cloves, and thyme.  On top, we seasoned the outside with extra virgin olive oil, thyme, and J.O.s.
J.O. Spice is best known for their crab seasoning, but Kevin picked up the Rotisserie Chicken Spice last time he stopped by their store.  Awesome stuff.
We fought over who got to baste the chicken each time.  Basting is fun.  (We were also in the middle of doing P90x Plyometrics and both wanted the break.)  

All of the veggies, chicken broth and seasonings ended up making some of the best vegetable soup/puree/gravy I have every tasted. 
And it made a ton!
We served the chicken with our veggie soup/puree/gravy and steamed brussels sprouts.
This Saturday, Kevin and I have exciting Valentine's Day plans.  We are taking a cooking class at Dogwood Restaurant in Hampden.  I am so excited to take pictures of our experience and will be sure to share.  I can NOT wait!
