Today is April Fool’s Day. Under any other circumstance, we’d be having all sorts of fun today with crazy posting and the like. But not this year. This year April Fool’s Day happens to fall during Holy Week. That take precedence in my book.Continue reading “Honoring Holy Thursday”
I’ve noticed something while strolling through the meat section of our local markets that I find amusing. From the well-stocked chain stores, to the mega box stores and every kind of market in between that there is a new kind of chicken to be had in the meat section. It’s a Spatchcock chicken. Some have been rubbed with seasonings, others have slices of citrus tucked around them, while still others are draped in herbs such as Rosemary and Thyme. All are twice the price per pound of a regular whole chicken. I really don’t think that little sprig of herb or some spice or slices of citrus are worth the asking price. So it must be the chicken, right? After all, it’s a Spatchcock chicken – a special breed, right? It must be. This new bred of chicken has no backbone so as to spread out flat on a Styrofoam tray.
