Roast chicken

Well, had my first piano lesson yesterday morning with Richard Devens. I had quite a nice time learning. I’m going to try and learn one of Bach’s 2 part inventions and one of Shumann’s Scenes from Childhood. We had Phillip Fisher and his wife Anne over for dinner last night and had a wonderful time. We are all confused about how long it actually takes to cook a chicken. The Joy of Cooking says it takes 1 hour for a 4 pound bird and 8 minutes for each extra pound at 400F, but he’s found it takes much longer for it to reach the desired internal temperature of 175F. He thought the meal was a bit overdone. I made an orange, almond rum cake which turned out pretty well.
