You know how you get some things for Christmas and you’re not sure what to do with them, but you think you might need them so you stick them in a drawer? You know those things? Well, I’ve had such a thing sitting in the back of one of my kitchen drawers for YEARS. YEARS,I say. I’m actually kinda embarrassed to be admitting that. It was a gift from my loving step-mother-in-law (how’s that for a mouthful) several Christmases ago. (Hi Dottie!) She knows I love to cook and got me the perfect gift. Except I wasn’t really sure what to do with it and shoved it in a drawer and forgot about it. For YEARS – have I already said that?
Anyway, last Sunday I was making Ina’s delicious GARLIC ROAST CHICKEN WITH VEGETABLES (divine by the way). It called for the legs to be tied together. One to ALWAYS follow directions, I was scrambling to figure out what to tie them with. Can you tell I haven’t roasted a chicken lately? Looking in the drawers, I found the box labeled THE FOOD LOOP. Thinking that it might help my plight, I opened the box. Yes, I know it is tragic that I hadn’t even opened the box in all these YEARS! This is what I found.
Perfect! I took one of the cute pink “silicone trussing tools” and made a quick loop around the legs of that there bird.
I tweeted the picture of the chicken and got hysterical comments back. One friend wanted to know if there was a pink hair bow to go with it. My mom thought I had used one of the Princess’s hair elastics.
I have found a new friend in the kitchen – THE FOOD LOOP. I love it.
Disclaimer: I was not given The Food Loop to review. It was a gift from the aforementioned step-mother-in-law. All opinions are mine and mine alone. I just wanted to share the goodness.
