  3. Yum. I use to do this a lot with whole chickens. Roasted celery is a favorite. I like to pour some white wine on mine, and maybe a little in my glass…

    That looks interesting! I may have to try it! I love roasting whole chickens but my hubs doesn’t like it, thinks it’s too messy, haha. He doesn’t appreciate the beauty of a whole cooked bird. This sounds like a good compromise. And I never would have thought to add pumpkin…
