roasted chicken

There times when one really can not be bothered to cook. Times when even boiling an egg is too much work. well that was me two weekends ago. I really just could not be bothered. It was a Sunday after church, i was sleepy and hungry so what I did i called Mr. Man into the kitchen and told him today would be the day I’d teach him how to fix something quick easy and tasty. He mixed up the marinade, we were to hungry to wait for the sauces to sit so he popped it into the oven and we sat then ate. EASY!! life should always be that easy. HAPPY COOKING!!
