Chicken, Squash, & Potatoes, Roasted; question?

We’re getting so fond of the skillet dinners I thought I’d try an oven dinner.

I think the current, popular name is a ‘sheet pan dinner’.

I had to google the difference between a sheet pan and a baking sheet (cookie sheet).

Well, actually, I googled it because I thought there wasn’t a difference and I do like to know that I’m right about something before posting it.

I was wrong.

A sheet pan (according to Google) has a rim all around that is about an inch (2.5cm) high. A baking sheet has little or no rim.

This is a baking sheet dinner.

I (apparently) do not own a sheet pan. I have a baking sheet with a modest, 1/4″ (1cm) rim.

I’m devastated…..

Roast Chicken and Vegetables

Who listens to Spotify?

Who no longer listens to Spotify?

If I want to continue to be able to listen to Neil Young, Joni Mitchel, et al – any suggestions for another streaming service?

I know there are a few out there but I don’t know anyone who listens to any of them. Actually, I’m the only one I know that listens to Spotify – other than an artist friend living on Crete…..

I apparently have boring friends…..

  1. I haven’t listened to Spotify in probably three years now and haven’t listened to Neil Young or Joni Mitchell in probably 30 and wouldn’t start now after everything that’s happened. I have Amazon Unlimited because I have Amazon dots here and at my father in laws across town. We can talk to him and keep track of him that way and he can listen to whatever music he wants to during the day. It’s just easier that way. And we have Sirius in the cars. Beyond that, I use TuneIn sometimes or iHeart Radio. Depends what I’m looking for. I never was a fan of Spotify though. I didn’t like their interface and early on, they used to let ‘artists’ contact users with spammy listen–to-my-music emails and I didn’t like that.

    We had a skillet dinner tonight. Sauerkraut with pork chops 🙂

    • Never heard of the artist contact bit, and I’ve been listening to Spotify for about 5 years…. Years ago I listened to radio365, then Boomer radio – both now gone. We don’t have any ‘virtual assistants’…. no reason not to – just don’t have a reason to have one.
      Kraut – we did too.

  2. This dinner looks terrific. I used to have a cookie sheet pan but all my cookies get baked on a rimmed sheet pan …
    I’ve just started using Apple Music and can’t believe what’s out there.

      • I wanted to pop and and just say, we’re Android users too and I have never been able to really get anything Apple to play well with it. If I can get it to load, it’s always quirky in some way. I remember radio365! What about Onlineradiobox? There’s always Pandora and Soundcloud too.
