       Easter Menu




Egg Salad Sandwiches
(want to use all those hard boil eggs up)


Roasted Potatoes
Pineapple Cake with Whip Cream


-1 large broiler/fryer whole chicken (as big as your crock will fit)
-thyme, rosemary, sage, parsley (Italian Seasoning)
-salt & ground pepper
-40 cloves UNPEELED garlic (buy in a jar already peeled)

Season the chicken in and out with salt, pepper, and generously with the herbs. Place on top of the celery. Place the cloves all around and on top of the chicken. Cover and cook on low 8 hours.
Remove chicken and celery to serving platter. Remove garlic to small bowl

-1/4 cup cream
-2 - 3 tablespoons cornstarch
-salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Skim the fat off the liquid in the crockpot. Turn to high. Add the cream. Mix cornstarch with a small amount of water until smooth and add to liquid. Stir, cover and heat until thickened. You can pour some on the chicken and put the rest in a gravy boat.
Serve with noodles or garlic mashed potatoes made from some of that wonderful roasted garlic in the pot.
