I roasted a chicken - I marinated it in some lemon juice, soy sauce and garlic for a few hours before roasting it in a hot oven surrounded by some vegies. I was very impressed with the way it turned out - nice and golden and glistening. Tasty too apparently!
for myself, I cooked up a big pot of minestrone soup, with plenty for the freezer to be eaten another day. And because it was just for me, I put in some fresh asparagus, and some tinned beans to make it extra yummy!
