Son (and dog) coming for tea. Son heads off on a camping trip tomorrow with girlfriend and another couple. So we have fur-face staying with us for the next fortnight.
So I'm cooking a full chook, with veg packed around it in my big cast iron pot. I shall need my truss to remove it from the stove.
A slurp of gravy to serve.

Get David to lift it out for you...... I love veggies when they have been cooked like that..... You've given me an idea for Sunday's cook in!
I had the last of the sausage and veggies for dinner and tea and St Augur on oatcakes for a top up with an apple for pudding. Butcher's day today...... I think a small chicken is on the list!

It was delicious Stanley...Potatoes, Carrot, quartered onion, pumpkin, Broccoli, Sprouts and the Chicken ( with Gravy). We all filled our boots. I heated the cast iron pot for 10 mins before adding the food, and put an inch of Chicken Stock in to heat. Then had it on a low setting for over 2 hours ( closer to two and a half as we got chatting and left it), turning the Chicken half way through. It just fell off the bone.
Easy Peasy cooking.

I got the chicken, I'll roast mine because I like the veggies roasted....
Cooked some broth bits.... Steak pudding and peas for dinner. Cornish Pasty and veggies for tea with a cream trifle Kath slipped in my shopping.

Mine had to be done on stove top. Still without an oven at this point. I am getting quite inventive with what is available to me though. (My problem being hubby's heavy workload and time free to go and choose kitchen appliances. It will happen, we just have to be patient.)

You're being very adaptable Maz!
I had Scotch egg and peas with some of the stuffing I made with the gravy from the chicken. At teatime I had a cold pork pie and nibbles, not very hungry.... Plenty of veggies cooked and a roast chicken in the fridge. I pushed an onion up the chicken's bum, why is that so satisfying? Is it just me?

Easy to make lasagne in the microwave. I've never done it any other way.

I'm glad your chickens are still alive, China. (She who must be coming home soon will be pleased about that).

I am in a mood for Chicken Curry tonight.
Son's dog likes to lie in strategic places in the kitchen, such as against the fridge door or directly below the food prep area. She likes to be the first to know if food is being prepared. (You can't sneak anything from the pantry or fridge without that dog knowing. It is easier to deny yourself food than attempt to outwit her)

Had the legs and wings of the chicken for dinner and the rest of the meat on two oven bottoms with stuffing for tea. I grilled 4 sausage and popped them in the slow cooker with the last of the veggies, that'll see me through the day!

Steak pudding and mushy peas for dinner. I mentioned yesterday the potato glut so I peeled three small ones, cut them into wedges, parboiled them and then deep fried them in the new dripping. They were lovely with salt and vinegar.....

3 are still alive, the scraggy one died a few weeks ago and was buried not eaten.
She who must be obeyed gets back next Saturday, I can see an end to the spam sandwiches.

Same as yesterday, the last of the spuds at teatime. No afters apart from some peanuts and an apple. I have extended the rest of the veggies and cabbage with baked beans and frozen peas. I shall grill six sausages to give it some protein.
