long weekend to celebrate Easter. My to-do list is almost sorted. Plans have been made to visit church, time for long distance calls to family, friends to get-together, sharing of home cooked meals, drinks, more meals, more drinks, and not to forget a treasure hunt for delicious melt- in- the mouth creamy Easter Eggs for the kids. The simplest part of the planning has been the Menu for my Easter meals. I have planned a simple yet delicious Easter menu with minimum effort :) Well for many, an Easter meal is incomplete without a Roast of some sort. Though I like the traditional Chicken Roast with stuffing, hubby is not a big fan of it, he finds it boring, does nothing for his tastebuds ;). So to satisy his spicy palate I tend to make this super simple Spicy Roast Chicken as a main dish in our Easter meal. One of the things that I really like about this Roast chicken is the use of everyday spices for the marination, in addition to lemon juice/ vinegar, of course a generous amount of salt. After marinating the chicken, it is roasted until it is moist and falling apart tender. Served along with roasted herb potatoes, roast vegetables and a cooling fruit n nut, Apple, Walnut, Mint and Yoghurt salad. What a meal!
I want buttery-soft roasted potatoes, herb-rubbed pork roasts studded with garlic cloves, crispy-skinned roastchicken stuffed with whole lemons, and thick slices of rare roast beef crusted with mustard
