Roasted chicken quarters & Roasted baby potatoes

                                            This is a close up of the 1st egg that our chickens laid.
It was smaller than our store bought eggs.
Its "life" did not last long because I accidently dropped it.
But this morning, there was another egg waiting in the nest.
And this afternoon, another little egg was laid.
Here are some other pictures from this weekend.
2 dogs, but they only ever play with 1 toy.

Liberally season the chicken. We left the skin on, but if you chose you can take it off since you will be cooking the chicken in liquid; so you don't have to worry about it drying out.
dried chicken= YUCK
These 2 dishes will make your entire house smell amazing due to the ingredients in the herbs de provence.
It usually contains lavender, sage, thyme, rosemary, and so forth.
