    Got a roast chicken to dissect now and get some stock off bones plus the tight meat then carcass out to bin as it gets emptied tomorrow first thing. Don't want it festering in bucket for 2 weeks lol



    I buy them pre roasted as I don't have an oven per say now just microwave oven. These are Tesco chilled ones and they're very good for money

    Looks pretty decent, Grant. You should treat yourself to some nice pasta sometime, or ask your family to do so, particularly that wealthy brother of yours

    Unfortunately, there is a sum total of ZERO Italian restaurants in Wrexham! A good deli is what's really needed, though... This was one of my fav places in Edinburgh, which we regularly used when I was up in Scotland: http://www.valvonacrolla.co.uk/deli-and-foodhalls

    Now, when we're up we go to Bella Fresca or Sartis, in Glasgow: https://www.bellafresca.co.uk/menus/ https://www.sarti.co.uk/sarti-wellington-st

    Btw, that roast chicken looks more like it, as it has some colour! Lol....

    Here's a good recipe for some roasties, to go with it [pretty much the same as Del's], which we always have with roast meats: https://www.afamilyfeast.com/tuscan-roasted-potatoes/

    Been cutting up stuff in the garden with the new chain saw for about an hour, would have taken me all day using the bow saw that I have, food will have to be quick, can't be bothered, had a good lunch anyway, roast chicken, broccoli, carrots, rice and gravy, followed by a couple of apples from the garden.

    Might do some pasta, sort of quick.
