I have two chickens roasting in the oven right now and Albin has been sitting in front of it complaining loudly for quite some time. That he already has gotten a bit more than half a pound of roasted chicken doesn’t mean much 🙂 🙂
I bought one of the chickens at the super market last week and it was rather cheap so I bought four of them. The other one I bought today on my way home, it costed a third more per kilo and I’m pretty sure I’ll get at least twice as much meat from that one than the cheap one. The expensive one is in fact much cheaper than the cheap one 🙂
I remember when I was a kid that when one bought a chicken they had put the heart, liver and some other stuff in a plastic bag inside the chicken and it was really important to remember to pick out that bag before cooking the bird 🙂 Everything tasted melted plastic otherwise and yes that happened in my family, my mother has never been a great cook. I can tell You loads of histories when it comes to her cooking but for now all You need to know is that I learned early in life to cook my own food 🙂 🙂
I also remember that one could buy hen in the stores. I guess it was hen that was used for egg production that when they had come to roads end were slaughtered. They actually remind me of the cheap chicken I bought, not a whole lot of meat on them. We usually boiled them for a very long time and then we made a stew or hen in curry. It was quite delicious to be honest but I don’t think one can buy hen any more, at least not in Swedish stores. Roosters are hard to find as well and to be honest, how many do Coq au vine now days.
It finally looks as if Albin no longer loose weight, so now I really hope that he will start gaining it instead. It is time to make myself something to eat, it is over 8 hours since I last had something.
Have a great day!
