1 whole fryer chicken (sorry, Big mama, but it just got to be that way)
Have one of those days.
Take a nap to get over it being one of those days.
Wake up to everyone demanding food. Of course.
Grab a glass dish from the sink of dishes the kids haven't washed yet, and wash it.
Rinse well and pat dry.
Now, rinse the chicken under running water well and pay dry.
For your own amusement, sit the chicken on the edge of the counter and flap it's wings in a chicken dance.
Abit too much.
Rub the chicken down with olive oil and sprinkle with season salt.
Put in the glass baking dish and cover with foil.
Shove it in a preheated oven of 450 degrees and set the time for an hour.
Remove from oven after an hour. and put on carving board for husband to carve.
Take glass dish and squirt some dish soap in to it, add water and set aside so it's easier to clean after dinner.
Be so stinkin' tired, that you make the kids set the table.
Serve the chicken, sides and enjoy.
Take flack from everyone at the table about how much the chicken tastes like dish soap.
Insist you rinsed the glass dish thoroughly, thankyouverymuch.
Get through dinner without killing anyone.
Insist kids clear the table and do the dishes right then and there.
At the moment, realize that your husband has the glass baking dish next to him on the table.
THAT glass dish.
Realize in a moment of pure, unadulterated glory that SOMEONE WHO SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS carved the chicken and put it back. in. the. glass dish. that. was. full. of. dish. soap. and brought it to the table.
