3 IDEAS USING A WHOLE ROASTED CHICKEN
- Start by calling your specialty food stores and SUPPORT THE LOCAL BUSINESSES in your area. Almost all of them are offering curbside pickup. If pickup is not available, you could try delivery options such as InstaCart or Shipt. Paying a small fee for a delivery service also helps out your local community. This saves you time while supporting individuals in your city.
- GIVE THANKS! Meat of any kind is hard to find right now. We encourage you to take a moment and thank God for the meal that is before you. We are reminded many times in the Bible where at a feast or celebration, meat was a delicacy. In Bible times, bread was the main course of a meal. As we are gathering at our table with our families, enjoy the conversation and acknowledge the blessing that is before you.
- Finally, we encourage you to pause and ponder how the FARMER that was able to get the meat to your table. Think of the person and/or family business behind this beautiful roasted chicken that is before you. When we pause to reflect the process and what it took to have this whole roasted chicken on the table, may we will slow you down and savor each bite.
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him. Psalm 34:8
