Moving Mondays: Rohan to Helm’s Deep, and the West Coast

Friday Flotsam: Endless Varieties of Roasted Chicken
It began of course with the basics. Thyme as the primary seasoning.
Always the roasted chicken is stuffed with onions – for flavoring the meat though it’s fine to eat some too. Usually there are potatoes, often carrots, last time, plantains.
Since then it’s a rotation of flavorings.
Lemon, infused with thyme.
Home-roasted garlic butter under the skin.
Or Berbere and other seasonings, an Ethiopian flair.
Or this week, with a jollof seasoning rub from Ghana.
A roasted chicken is a great excuse to invite the folks over, to share a meal. Plus all the leftovers to enjoy for days after.
Do you have a favorite way to season a chicken for roasting? Let me know in the comments. I’m always tweaking to make something otherwise basic into something new.

I’ve been reading all week.
Among this week’s entries were 2 of a 4 book series by Octavia Butler — but when I went to start book 3 I realized that books 1 and 2 stood alone and I didn’t have to continue in order to get something from the story. And it felt like it was already full. So I didn’t continue.Continue reading “Reading Wednesday: This Week’s Books”
