Unappreciated — ACIMH

So I’m learning to cook, in the Better Late than Never category.  Tonight I made my first-ever roast chicken, and the Actual Conversation In My House went something like this;

Me: I made my first-ever roasted chicken**! Isn’t it beautiful??

Navy Guy: You roasted it upside down.

Me: But at least it’s roasted. And beautiful! And I made my first-ever gravy that turned out great!!

Navy Guy: Too much salt in the gravy.

Me: WELL, AT LEAST I TOOK OUT THE FREAKING PLASTIC BAGS OF GUNK, UNLIKE THAT TIME WITH THE THANKSGIVING TURKEY.

College Ninja: (helpfully) That was two times, Mom.

Me: I hate you all. Go find your own dinner.

**Thanks to the Barefoot Contessa for the recipe–it’s totally delicious!

    I think your roasted chicken looks delish. I absolutely love the Barefoot Contessa..she is awesome. I too have tried this recipe after watching her show and haven’t been disappointed in the results. I hope Navy Guy and College Ninja had the chicken and gave you huge high fives on the deliciousness of it.

    Love your new website too…it rocks.
