cooking fiasco

so saturday i decided to roast a chicken, complete with stuffing. as vegetables around the bird, i used a sweet potato, mushrooms, and an onion. i made a sausage and mushroom stuffing.
now, i used a bag of stuffing mix from the store -- essentially dried cubes of white and wheat bread, with some seasonings. bad, bad idea. it was a leftover bag from amy and i. only after cooking the chicken two hours and taking my first bite did i remember why this bag was never used up; it tasted like ass. and i know it was the bread cubes because it was the same taste of ass from when we had used them before -- two completely different stuffing recipes, same essence of ass. it was horrible. so we threw away all the stuffing. chet had a couple bite of chicken, and a couple mushroom slices. guess what: while he cooks with yams a lot, he doesn't like them unless they're accompanied by some other root vegetable. totally felt like a failure with this meal. it was lovely. however, it gets better.
we get home from the closing night party, and chet makes himself a sandwich with some of the chicken. hooray! he leaves the pan of chicken carcass on the counter in case i want any of the meat left on it. i don't. so i pick up the pan, turn toward the refrigerator, and proceed to throw the entire damn chicken on the kitchen floor. 5 second rule. i picked it up, put it back in the foil pan, and shoved it into the fridge. tonight i'm using it for chicken stock. after the trouble i've encountered with this stupid bird, i am NOT throwing it in the garbage. but maybe i'll rinse it first.

oh it was horrible. i don't know how they got that taste. and i don't know why we didn't throw the bag away after the first disaster with them.
