We eat a lot of chicken. I rarely buy a whole chicken, and buying a whole ‘cut-up’ chicken, which I used to do in the U.S., is not an option here.
I can get boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chicken thighs with legs, which we then cut apart, and, occasionally, chicken wings, or just chicken thighs. Even more rare, and only in summer, are just chicken legs.
When I was a child chicken was reserved for Sunday dinner and was always a whole chicken that my mother cut up and roasted. It was her signature dish.
I’ve never successfully replicated it…. I think it had something to do with the special cast iron skillet she browned it in first. I don’t had a cast iron skillet (I know, shame on me).
I am, however, quite successful and grilling chicken breasts. Well – mon mari does the grilling, I do the flavoring.
It works for us.

I may have mentioned last fall that mon mari bought a new toy: chainsaw on a stick.
It’s electric so it doesn’t way a ton, and on a long stick which lets him trim the trees without getting on a ladder and hoisting up the big chainsaw.
He’s been playing.
This is a photo I took a few years ago of our well:
It normally is covered with pots of geraniums with the birdbath in the middle. The evergreen on the left and the wisteria on the right grow together. They were getting a little out of control. The geraniums weren’t getting any sun and, even in a downpour, no water managed to get to the birdbath.
The geraniums were moved to the table by the barn, temporarily.
The birdbath was moved to the center of the lawn, permanently. It will be much easier to take care of there.
And the 2 trees were trimmed. We hope that enough of the wisteria has been removed that the evergreen will continue to live. The whole right side was draped in wisteria vines. Both trees had branches low enough that one had to duck.
The geraniums will be moved back, shortly.
We might even fix the pump on the well…..
