Dinner Bonanza Day 1!

Here's dinner! Hang on to the leftover chicken because it's going into tomorrow's dinner! 
Hope you enjoy! 

Whole baked chicken 
1 medium roasting chicken 
Poultry seasoning
1 cup white wine 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat chicken in poultry seasoning.  Bake for thirty minutes then pour white wine over chicken.  Bake an additional 30 minutes or until juices run clear.  Baste in wine juices occasionally.  

Mashed sweet potatoes 
3 medium sweet potatoes 
1/2 cup milk
1 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs butter
1 tsp apple pie seasoning 

Bake/microwave sweet potatoes until tender.  Chop sweet potatoes and mash with remaining ingredients.  I keep the skin on to hang on to some of the nutrients, but you could also peel before mashing if you prefer a smoother dish. 

Creamy cucumber salad
1 large cucumber, peeled, halved and sliced thinly
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp dill 
Salt and pepper to taste.

Combine all ingredients and allow to hang out 15 minutes before serving.  Season with salt and pepper.

Balsamic strawberries
Got this one from Runner's World Magazine and boy is it yummy!
1 pint strawberries
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp balsamic vinegar

Slice strawberries and combine with sugar and vinegar.  Allow to marinate 15 minutes before serving. Delish!
