It only took six months, but the change spoken of in August is now complete.
Listen to how it goes:
Perfect Roast Chicken (a perfect Valentine's dinner, according to the spouse)
6-lb roasting chicken
Heat oven to 325. Rinse chicken (cooking novices: take that gut bag out of the chicken!) and place breast side up on rack in roaster. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and about 1 tsp. of thyme. Place chicken in oven and let roast until done, about 2.5-3 hours (use a thermometer to check doneness. If you don't know how to do this, please go read up on it before you poison yourself).
