What's for Dinner?

So since this is supposed to by my version of a journal, I thought it would be a good idea to keep track of some of my daily stuff.  Like cooking.  Which we all have to do several times a day.  I love a good roast chicken.  So here is a naked chicken!  I am probably breaking some kind of chicken nudity laws, so let's dress it up a little!

Rub it all over with olive oil, kosher salt, and ground black pepper, and 400 F and about 1 and 1/2 hours later...
Voila!  Yummy roast chicken!  Now what to serve with it?  Thank goodness for Pinterest!  I found this great recipe to try on there the other day--parmesan roasted potatoes.  
Gather your ingredients,  yukon gold potatoes, paprika, olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.

Cube the yukon potatoes and then toss with the 
olive oil, paprika, salt, pepper, and cheese.  

This is what you end up with...yummmmmmm.

Of course, every good meal needs some greens--this is one of my favorite and easiest salads
Gather up some mixed greens, with spinach preferably, feta, dried cranberries and pecan pieces.

Yummy greens,  now add the toppings:  pecans, cranberries and feta.  Which for some reason I didn't take a picture of.  Just pretend there are some crumbly bits of white cheese on there.

And now the secret weapon:

This dressing is FABULOUS!  Girard's champagne vinaigrette-- and the best part is, you can get it right here in Enid, OK in our little ol' Walmart!  It really enhances the tart of the cranberries and the sweetness of the pecans....Go get some!   And enjoy!  And have some tomorrow for lunch!  Now, what is for dinner tomorrow?
