I practiced cutting up a chicken last night! It's really so easy. And I hope to convince you that it is too. With one 5 lb roaster, I used the breasts for dinner, gave the legs to the grandparents, saved the wings in the refrigerator still, and used the rest of it for a delicious stock -- just throw the body in your biggest pot, cover with water and simmer for a couple of hours or as long as you've got. If you have an onion or some carrots - -even better! I'm going to show you all of this at a party I'm hosting on December 3, so save the date! Pampered Chef expert Marion Paterson will show us how to roast a chicken in the microwave! (How's that for fast food). And we'll taste all of Maple View's latest products including our grass-fed beef and eggs. I hope you can join us. Look for your invite in your e-mail box. Meanwhile, I have FRESH roasters right now. You won't get anything like it at the grocery store.
