First, I pretended it was mid-April and put on my flip flops.
Second, I prepared a cup of iced green tea (my favorite).
And third, I jotted down a list of flowers to buy for the front porch.
Warm weather can do that to you.
Make you wear sandals without a pedicure.
Give you a jolt of energy, like you’ve just had a double shot of espresso.
Or inspire you to start writing a list of all the places you’d like to visit over summer and the sundresses you need to buy for your travels.
It was a wonderful Sunday.
Of course, there was plenty of sports over the weekend, but near-perfect weather was cause for a mini celebration.
Because of the lovely weather and busy weekend, I’m going to leave you with a few photos to highlight this gorgeous roast chicken with lemon and tarragon and then I’m going to send you Ms. Stewart (that’s Martha Stewart) to get the recipe.
I know, lazy.
But, you’ll forgive me when you see just how easy it is to make this perfect roast chicken. I used fresh tarragon, but you could use fresh thyme or rosemary. All yield a delicious roast chicken for tonight’s supper.
Don’t be intimidated by preparing a roast chicken. It’s basically butter, salt and black pepper, fresh herbs, a whole lemon and garlic. I bet you have most of what you need already.
Once it’s in the oven, you’ve got time to help your kids with homework, set the table or throw a frisbee (it’s warm out, remember?).
Hope spring has arrived at your home too!
