1 whole chicken + extra chicken thighs or drumsticks
6 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic, skin on
2 lemons, quartered
1 tbsp dried rosemary
2 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper
Save all the bones and any leftover potatoes and garlic. The carcass should be used to make 1 gallon of chicken bone broth for recipes later in the week. Save all the extra chicken and pan drippings for Chicken Pot Pie on Monday.
Are you foot-loose and fancy-free when it comes to cooking up a storm in the kitchen? Do you like to create your own masterpieces with tried and tested recipes? If so, you might relish this slightly healthier version of traditional Scotch eggs.
Scotch eggs were invented by Fortnum & Mason, an old-fashioned department store established in 1707 in the UK. This surprisingly simple yet delicious recipe has two main ingredients: eggs and pork sausage meat. It makes perfect picnic food, travels well, and can be eaten hot or cold.
Being in the garden is healing. Digging in the soil with bare hands and feet while soaking up the sunshine. Fresh water washing the toes via the hose. Where bees are buzzing, hummingbirds fluttering, buds a-blooming and beans are growing.
