So last night we had a dinner adventure.
Ina Garten's Roasted chicken with lemon, red potatoes and croutons, Ina's roasted pears with walnuts, cranberries and blue cheese and chicken flavored rice pilaf (Uncle Ben's...)
The chicken came out great-- I basted it with white wine, apple cider and chicken broth. The pears were wonderful! Though they are more of a fall/winter taste-- the pears are cooked in an apple cider, port and brown sugar mixture which makes for a very tasty, but very strong flavor.
All in all it was a tasty meal!
