Menu Plan Monday

Chilly greetings from middle TN. ! There is a rumor of those rare, elusive white flaky things going around the area here - LOL

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! We ended up freezing our leftover turkey, as the day after we were gifted with two large whole chickens that needed to be cooked ASAP. What a wonderful gift! I decided to roast one for dinner that night with all the trimmings, and do a "rotisserie" style one in the crock pot. Then I skinned it, easy peasy while still warm, and made chicken salad. I use to do that all the time when I worked in a deli, for ten years! It was soooo yummy for lunch yesterday after church.

Here is the chicken after I skinned it. For crock pot rotisserie simply spray pot with pan spray, put 5 or 6 aluminum foil balls in bottom of pot and cook on low for 6 hours. Don't forget to clean chicken, and season as you wish. I used lemon pepper.

Here is a shot of our roast chicken with all the trimmings, I seasoned with Italian Herb seasoning that I found in a neat new grinder!

This week our menu is much more pedestrian. For more Menu Plan Monday visit
