Here’s the roast chicken I did for family Thanksgiving:
It’s got a thyme-garlic-lemon rub on it and it was just as spectacularly yummy as it looks. Crisp on the outside, juicy on the inside.
Craft-wise right now I’m making a new brocade doublet and knitting a bunch of gifts. I had a realization this week: I really like being able to make things. Roast a whole bird for the table, make cool clothes and things — it’s so tactile and functional.
It’s like I might actually survive after an apocalypse or something.
The finale of The Last Kingdom: holy cow, people. Just fantastic. That battle needs to be required viewing for all SCA people everywhere. I want more.
And I finished Jessica Jones: There was some real boneheaded idiot plotting between about episode 7 and 11. But it managed to pull it back together for the finale. Can’t say this is a favorite — it went really dark, even for me. But I’m glad this show exists.
