Roasted Chicken With Veggies


Roasted Chicken Recipe For Winter

It’s been snowy for more than two weeks, which makes us crave for soup and oven dishes more. Oh and of course for green tea, sage tea and salep! When it first snew this year, we rushed out even it was night time to feel the star shape snow on our face after a long summer and fall time.

We couldn’t wait more for playing snowball. It wasn’t only two of us who were joyous because of snow. Lots of people were out enjoying themselves with snow, they were playing snowball, making snowman, walking and even lying on snow.

We have already got used to living with snow and it’s not very likely to see people outside playing with snow these days. People are trying to escape from snow anow and they are rushing into their homes to have a cup of hot drink. It looks like they are bored of snow and they start to wait for sunny spring days! This is human nature, isn’t it?

This roasted chicken and veggies was made on such a snowy weekend. We love to cook inside when it’s rainy or snowy outside! This fantastic dish came out with what we had in the refrigerator. We had it with a large bowl of green salad.

    What a great dish for the cold weather! It snowed for the first time this winter in London yesterday and so today I’ve woken up with lots of snow on the ground. It looks pretty but I’m planning to stay inside in the warmth all day and maybe cook something nice later on.

    What beautiful pictures of the snow. I am fascinated by the recipes too, they all look so delicious.
    Most of all I am fascinated by the picture of yourself. This is really cool. I know nothing about Turkey. The only Turkish women I have met in Texas were dressed like Catholic nuns. Suits with long skirts and a short veil to match.
    I formed the idea that all people in Turkey, both men and women, wear suits and are very serious.
    No one I know in Texas knows anything about Turkey or any of the countries in that part of the world. They don’t really tell you anything in school. The magazine and news articles emphasize armed conflict in any articles they print about other countries.
    They make the entire world seem sad and scary.
    People around the world must think Americans are stupid and they are not far wrong. But the best remedy for this is sites like yours that tell about the everyday good things that we all share, all over the world.
    Everyday people are not enemies. It’s wrong for the people in the governments to start these wars and they do it by keeping people in ignorance and making people scared.
    The American news media is the worst worst worst about that.
    It is controlled by a few very powerful corporations.
    It’s lies.
    We can go around this by talking directly to each other online about food and the good things we all hold in common.

      Hi Lorna, thanks for this sincere comment and glad to hear that you like my blog. People outside Turkey might have prejudice about my country as they don’t know much about it. Some even think that we ride camels here :) It may be because Turkey is not a big country or as you mention, media and their owners could be blamed for this. Well, I started my blog with these thoughts 4 years ago, so at Give Recipe I’m trying to tell about my country, along with its food and culture. Nice to ‘meet’ you here!
