I am excited. Tomorrow I am going to the Fabulous Food Show here in Cleveland. Last year I Instagrammed the event as I made my way through hundreds of booths. I found some amazing stuff to use in my recipes last year. I can not wait to see what I find this year.

This year I have friends going with me. So it is going to be even more of a blast. You might be asking yourself, why is Dee excited about food expo?

Truthfully it is because I never can make the food blog conventions. One because of money it costs to go. Another reason is that I can never get off work to fly to them. This expo is in my own backyard and it is so much easier to go to.

When I was married, the ex would only allow me to cook one meal for him. That meal was Thanksgiving dinner. I would try to make him the perfect meal. It was my only chance to be a wife to him in a way. So it had to be good.

Anyway, I would make this citrus rosemary salt turkey that I found on the Food Network page. It was really good. Of course, I would change a few things with the recipe.

Flash forward to today. I do not make a whole turkey anymore. Truthfully, it has been years since I have made that turkey. So I have modified what I did for that turkey to a roasting chicken.

I do not make the rosemary salt for this chicken. I now use instead of a lemon olive oil, which by the way I had got at last year’s Fabulous Food Show. It still has the basics of what I do for the turkey, just minus those few details. This chicken is still fabulous.
