The joy of real chicken

Sunday night we had a great dinner: roast chicken from Falling Sky Farm, green beans with garlic, roasted potatoes and carrots, and salad. All of it from local farms. The chicken was moist and flavorful, the beans and potatoes excellent.

Last night we used the left-over chicken to make soft tacos with tomato-corn salsa. Again, excellent. I made the corn tortillas myself; it isn't hard, but I always forget that I need to do it until almost everything else is ready. Which means lots of rushed tortilla rolling and masa flour all over the counters. But the result was worth the mess.
