With cold weather settled in the area for the weekend, and gray skies, I felt like staying closer to home and hibernating. After a nice morning sleeping in and visit to the gym, I watched a few episodes of Ramsey's Best Restaurant and got inspired to cook something different.
Arugula salad with oranges.
Attempt at Zuni Roast Chicken.
My attempt was partially foiled by the sensitive and temperamental smoke alarm in our apartment. I couldn't get the nice deep golden brown like I wanted, but it was still nice and juicy. With mashed potatoes, gravy and roasted onions, poblano peppers and carrots, we had a nice dinner at home that reminded my boyfriend of Thanksgiving.
