I didn't make any progress today with the seed inventory, but I did manage to make dinner. Yay for progress!
Today is the fifth anniversary of my mother-in-law passing away. It's always a rough day for Tony. He had an interview today for a management position in a different department of the same store he works in. It sounds like it went well, despite an otherwise emotionally difficult day.
We had an absolutely beautiful sunset this evening.
Unfortunately, the egg is cracked. While it isn't leaking goo, it is probably still considered "contaminated" as it was on the coop floor. Still cool that they're laying eggs for us.
Herbed Garlic Apple Chicken For The Slow Cooker
Cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces and toss into the slow cooker. Dice up half of a large onion or a whole medium onion. Set aside a large pinch and add the rest to the slow cooker.
In a bowl mix oregano, basil, rosemary, thyme and garlic salt. I used more oregano than the other ingredients, but the rest were pretty evenly added.
Rinse your chicken off, and pat dry. Take a good amount of your seasoning and coat the inside of the chicken. Core and dice a couple apples, get half a head of garlic prepped, and add both the diced apples and the whole garlic cloves to the diced onion you set aside earlier. Use this mix to stuff your chicken. Remember to stuff from the top too!
Put your stuffed chicken on top of the potatoes and onions already in the slow cooker. I tucked the wings back behind the neck because a different recipe I saw said to do that. No idea why. Rub the remaining seasoning all over the skin of the chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours depending on the size of your bird.
I would consider doing this recipe again, either with a store-bought whole chicken, or perhaps with a rabbit.
Off topic note, the chicken had blue to black colored skin, and black bones inside. It was very strange for someone who's never had any chicken outside of the commercially farmed white chicken before.
