Celebratory Dinner

To celebrate the job offer I got yesterday, I whipped up an awesome dinner for myself and Polo Guy. The chicken turned out so delicious that I thought I'd share the recipe:

1 whole chicken (split in half)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 tablespoon herbes de provance (if you don't have these, just add a dash or two of your favorite herbs)

Mix together all ingredients (except chicken - duh). Place chicken in roasting pan and pour 1/2 of liquid mixture over it, rubbing to make sure it's well coated. Reserve the remaining liquid for basting. Bake for 2 hours at 325 - I have a convection roast feature, which gets the skin really brown and crisp, but if cooking in a conventional oven, I'd suggest 350.

When chicken is done, remove from pan to large platter and deglaze the roasting pan with red wine (I only had half a bottle left by the time the chicken got done!). Add in sliced mushrooms and onions and reduce.

This was yummy paired with a simple green salad and some oven roasted potatoes! (Since I'm new to the blogging world, I'll let you in on some personal information related to the previous sentance. Notice I didn't say yum-o because I CANNOT STAND RACHEL RAY. In my opinion she's a Martha wanna-be and not a very good one at that. That said if you love her, more power to you, I just perfer Martha's cool perfection!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
