Round Robin: Chickens Are for Eating

I admit it. As busy as I've been with my new temp job, my job at St. Michael's and various one-off events, I've been too distracted to do much blogging. I even forgot what this week's Round Robin Photo Challenge is until after I ruined one photographic opportunity. This week's topic, as suggested by Sherrie of Sherrie's Stuff, is "Chicken." By the time I looked this up, here's what was left of tonight's dinner:

As it happens, the dogs also had chicken for dinner:

But that's boring. How about something a bit more fun? This is a vintage cookbook we picked up somewhere, sometime:

And here's our Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, with an extra chicken recipe torn from a magazine, at a very specific time in our cultural history:

Along with my new work situation, I've been struggling to get my computer in more usable condition than it's been lately. Today the techs at Staples installed my 2 GB of RAM (I only had 1 before) and reset the computer to its factory settings. Because if this, I no longer have access to my primary photo editing software (see the entry above this one for details). I had to resort to Adobe PhotoShop's bare bones online editor to produce the pics above. But what the heck; it worked!

I promise not to wait a week to post my next entry - in fact, I need to do my Weekend Assignment before going to bed. Meanwhile, let's visit everyone else's chickens!

I was wondering if we'd get some chicken bones this week :0)
I have to admit I do enjoy some fried chicken...

I've been crazy chicken wings ... I may have some for supper.

I played too :)

Hi Karen

Sorry about the computer woes, I can relate. I am making chicken in the Crock Pot even as I type this. Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo. It's delicious!

Lana G! said...

I'm making chicken for dinner tonight! May have to pull out some old recipes!

Linda said...

Such a creative collection of chicken photos---now I'm hungry!

Suzanne R said...

Yummy chicken -- I haven't had it for a while so I must pull some out of the freezer soon and get it cooked. The chicken bones are funny!

Mmm, chicken!
