Thankful Thursday: Poultry

Because appreciation increases joy,
it's Thankful Thursday.

What are you thankful for today? A person, a place, a thing? A story, a song, a poem? I've found the more I appreciate, the more I see to appreciate. Joy expands and contracts in direct relation to our sense of gratitude. Tell me, what makes your world expand?

We are smack in the certainty of winter, and my world is feeling damp, abandoned, cold and cruel.

Thankfully — yes, there is an upside to this dreary disposition — I have learned how to roast a chicken. I'm no gourmet. I like food and love eating but I have no patience for complicated cooking. And I'm frugal to boot. Thank goodness for easy, affordable, delicious roast chicken. After a robust search, I now use this simple recipe. Today, the kitchen is warm and my heart is thawing, and all because of an edible bird.

On this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful for poultry.
