Date and Rosemary Roast Chicken

Winner, Winner, Roast Chicken Dinner.

I’ve always loved this recipe for Date and Rosemary Roast Chicken. I think I saw the idea in a Readers Digest and made my own off of that. It takes everything up a notch.

My Poppa (Maternal Grandfather) has short term memory loss. He’s always in pain. Doesn’t remember a new person. Doesn’t remember to put on clean clothes. (But my Dad says he never did before anyways!) But…he is the only one who can tell my three sisters and I apart on the phone, first try When Cowboy and I told him and my Grandma I was pregnant,(and 16) he got up right away, gave me a big hug, and said, “Well you know we’ll be behind you 100% of the way”. Isn’t that crazy how a man who has forgotten the social … Continue reading Teach ’em young
