I Might Have, Maybe, Possibly ...

One more day off. Tim's making a map and I'm about to gut my fridge.  Meanwhile, last night's supper was yum. Usually I bake a bird in a big honkin' cast iron with lots of vedge. But yesterday, I wanted to add MORE carrots, onions, garlic and little whole potatoes, so I went with a larger pan.

Best choice, ever. 

The big glass pan roasted the vedge in the chicken stock but didn't poach them, and the texture and taste was fantastic. As for my pear bake ....

... well, I might have, maybe, possibly, put the pear bake in the oven, leaving half of the homemade roasted pearsauce, on my workbench.

  8. PEar bake sounds wonderful but wait, is that wrong to leave half of the pear sauce? Sorry, novice here. Enjoy! hopefully, it all comes out great on this wonderful Labour Day.
    BTw, you asked yesterday what did each of us plan or have for dinner? for us, it was pretty lame really but somewhat healthy --shredded wheat cereal with half a banana sliced up in it.

    1. I should have done that, along with a video of the finished bird but we were hungry, and I forgot.

      Have you cooled down yet? I'm drinking hot tea and wearing two shirts and a coat. Burrrr.

    1. If we lived closer, I'd drop some goodies off to you and your hubby. Workings so hard to get things done. Very exciting though. Can't wait to move, ourselves. Wishing you the best.
