Roast Chicken with Vegetables

Roast Chicken with Vegetables

From when I was a wee girl I have always loved roast chicken.  It is a wonderful meal anytime of year.  I remember one time when I was younger my mom was making a roast chicken with mashed potatoes.  She had placed the chicken on the table and was just finishing up mashing the potatoes in the kitchen.  I grabbed the chicken off the table and hid underneath the table and ate the chicken.  My mom came out after it was nearly all gone and just stood there saying “the whole thing” over and over again.  Did I mention I love roast chicken 🙂  I was 5 years old I think, fairly young but completely able to devour a whole chicken on my own!  My poor mother, I’m not sure what they had for dinner that night buy my chicken was delicious!
