The Return of Sunday Dinner

I realize it is Thursday night, and kinda late, but I just had to share. Recently, Manly has switched from working nights to working days. Hallelujah. We were on the night shift for 13 years and I thought it was going to kill me. Now that he is working days, he is also off on weekends, which is a blinking miracle. I am now making big family Sunday dinners to celebrate. I intend to keep celebrating like this for the rest of my life. There are a few things I think are perfect for Sunday dinner - like pot roast, jambalaya, Italian fried chicken and just plan old roasted chicken. Apparently, the roasted chicken in the winner around here. I was saving it for Sunday dinner, the monkeys wanted it for dinner every night. Here is the way it is done.

1 whole chicken (organic if I can find it AND afford it)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Soy sauce
1 teaspoon Teriyaki sauce
a couple of shakes of garlic power
a couple of shakes of onion powder

Put the chicken in a roasting pan, poor the sauces over it, shake on the powders and bake at 350 until golden brown. You can bast it a couple of times if you remember.

Make gravy from the drippings with a little water and corn starch (instructions on the corn starch box). Serve it all with brown rice.
