Dog Days Continue

by Anne Bennett on July 25, 2012

Right after I snapped his picture, Whit plunged in and took a swim. Standard poodles are water dogs.

Here is where I found puppy Whitman late yesterday afternoon, perched on the top steps of the swimming pool. At the time the temperature in Kansas City was 102 degrees F.

Today is going to top out at 104 degrees F., not fit weather for cooking inside. I, for one, am weary of salad, salad, salad, thus tonight I’m turning my covered grill into an oven and roasting a chicken.

I normally buy a 4-pound bird but had to settle for a 3-pounder. The butcher at the market said that in this hellish weather the local poultry farmer hasn’t been able to get his chickens to eat enough to gain weight.

Great. Chickens, among the dumbest creatures on earth, are doing better at weight maintenance than I am.

Well, Anne, how did that chicken turn out? I am roasting a chicken today but haven’t yet decided what method to use.
I have checked out some of the cookbooks you discussed a few posts ago and am looking forward to trying a few new things.
Good to see you posting again…missed you for a few days. 🙂 I read even when I don’t comment ’cause you make life a little happier.
