Winter Waning Moon of the Winter Solstice
A long time ago I got a clay pot for cooking, a romertopf. Over many years I used it at least every several weeks, then it went in the cupboard, not to come back into the kitchen. Until today. A free-range chicken, 40 of our garlic cloves, two of our onions and the last of our leeks went in with the last of our carrots and 7 small potatoes. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 475, take the top off to let it brown and voila! A tasty, moist chicken with sides already done. Throw in a steam in the bag collection of green beans, a Kate made chicken gravy and we were ready for lunch.
My cooking tends to be like that, large amounts with leftovers, whether soup or chicken.
