What you missed when you didn't come to Friday Night BYOP

Other than getting a great preview of the new yarns we just got in before the weekend hordes descend, you missed this:

Kathy, on phone to husband: "Wash the chicken, pat it dry, go into the cavity and pull out and extra globs of chicken fat."

Husband: Like the sound Linus's teacher Miss Othmar from the Peanuts cartoon.

Kathy: "Look on the inside. There is usually a glob of fat."

Husband: Same as above.

Kathy: "Salt and pepper the inside & outside. Roll the lemons on the counter to soften them up. Poke holes in the lemon with a fork or knife."

Husband: Same as above.

Kathy: "About twelve holes. Go into the pulp. No, not all the way to the other side."

Husband: Same as above.

Kathy: "Tie the legs. Bend back the wings. Square pan. Blue square pan. In the cabinet next to the stove. Okay, how about the white round pan over the stove. Okay, how about the blue glass pan. Anything that fits the chicken will work. Okay, fine."

Husband: Same as above.

Kathy: "Breast side down. If you put it in the pan and you poke the top is it boney or fleshy? Are the knees pointing up or down? The knees should be pointing down. The wings should be on top. Yes, knees down, wings on top, boney on top, fleshy on the bottom."

Husband: Same as above.

Kathy: "Oh, the lemons are falling out. Use a toothpick to close the opening. Yes, fold the flaps over and poke the toothpick through. No, I don't see how you can hurt yourself. No, I can't imagine you'd have to go to the emergency room."

Husband: Same as above.

Kathy: "Love you, too. I'll take care of the brussell sprouts when I get home."

Actually it went on much longer.

That's hilarious! I hope the chicken got done without any trips to the emergency room. :)

And I hope the new yarn is lovely too.
