Well, the slaughter was the first hurdle.

The second was whether or not I’d actually be able to eat an animal I raised.

I had an early and light lunch, and roasting chicken always takes so much longer than I anticipate, so by the time it was ready, I was famished.

It wasn’t pretty – the wings had been removed for the sake of ease, we’d cut through the breast bones to make it easier to remove the organs, and I’d cut the feet off a good bit too high on this one by accident. I put some herbs in the cavity, “stitched” it all back together with toothpicks, set the bird on a bed of potatoes and carrots, and smothered it with herb butter.

The taste was absolutely incredible. More people should do this.

    There is NO chicken as good as FRESH chicken. And know, you this too.

    As for moi, I am a fan of the onion and peppers food group, but to each their own.

    Bon appetit!
