The obligatory Duke photo.
Sorry, I will never get tired of taking his picture.
Look! It's baby tomato and onion plants leaning towards the sunlight. I'm so proud of myself for even sprouting plants, so we'll see how the cultivation and transplanting goes this spring.
On the other hand, my herbs are taking their sweet time.
Yesterday, I decided to roast a chicken at 9 a.m. Who knows, don't ask! Ina Garten's lemon chicken with croutons is such a simple but delicious recipe to adapt to your taste. Instead of croutons, I add carrots and potatoes to the roast about half way through. They absorb all of the lemon-infused juices that run out as well as the sweat from the onions that are under the bird. So simple and so good.
