Your Chicken is Roasted

January 31, 2017: Monday Night Massacre

Tonight the Cheeto Supreme fired the Acting Attorney General Sally Yates because she told him his Executive Order to deny entry from 7 Muslim majority countries, targeting Muslims especially, was not legal. He had asked her to stay on until the new Attorney General is confirmed but tonight she kept her oath of office, a vow of loyalty to the Constitution. He accused her of betrayal.  Betrayal.  He underestimated her integrity. Word is a new Acting AG has been sworn in, Dana Boete, but by whom and when is uncertain.

He then fired the director of ICE, probably because he and the head of CBP couldn’t figure out how to carry out his orders. The CBP was dumped yesterday.

This all comes on top of the revelation that senior staffers on the Judiciary Committee were used to write Friday’s Executive Order without the knowledge of their bosses. They were also required to sign NDAs. They all need to be fired by their bosses.

This looks like a Constitutional crisis to me.

Roast Chicken

1 roasting hen, approximately 6 lbs.                                      1 tsp salt & 1 tsp pepper

1 stick of butter (1/2 Cup)                                                           3 – 4 bay leaves

3 – 4 cloves of garlic, crushed or 1 Tbsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp each of thyme, marjoram, sage, oregano, and dried basil

Rinse your chicken & pat dry, place in a roasting pan & put it into the cold oven. Set the oven to 375°. Melt the butter in a saucepan on low and add everything else. When the butter is melted brush the entire chicken with the butter & herbs. In 30 minutes baste the chicken again with the rest of the herbed butter or the drippings in the pan. Let the chicken roast for another 30 minutes and check for doneness by piercing a thigh with a sharp fork; if the juices are clear it’s done. The skin should be crispy and golden brown and the smell should have driven you half mad by now.

This recipe is slightly more intensely flavored than a roast chicken that is meant to be served warm, because this is supposed to be served cold at a picnic which we have never done. We always eat it while it’s still pretty warm, as soon as possible after removing from the oven.
