How to slowly roast a chicken

Gee it was cold this morning. The measured temperature was only –1 °C but the apparent temperature was a lot less. While I was walking I was thinking about how I was going to roast a chicken for dinner tonight.

I did my usual walk around Lake Ginninderra and noticed a lot of frost.

To warm up I cooked breakfast. I heard that it is bacon week so I made sure I can a piece of crispy bacon and some eggs.

For lunch I made myself hot and spicy creamy garlic prawns with bacon.
