Today Daylight Savings Time begins for Canadians, except if you live in Saskatchewan.
As I mentioned a little while ago, Saskatchewan doesn't get as much notice as other Canadian provinces.
So, Sunday is a perfect time to go to Carmela's chapter Feeding my Family in Artie's The Sopranos Family Cookbook.
Sometimes Carmela's recipes are pretty basic.
Maybe this recipe is an old favourite from her folks' off the boat days.
Or something Livia actually made and Tony regarded as an old favourite.
If you've invited a few heavy eaters, prepare some more potatoes.
Place them in a single layer in another pan and toss with oil.
Bake a squash or two and you've included a nice orange vegetable in the menu.
Slice another lemon and set aside.
1 chicken, quartered (or 3 1/2 pounds parts)
3 potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
the lemon juice
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 garlic cloves, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Turn the pieces to coat evenly with the oil.
Turn the chicken skin-side up.
Add the lemon slices.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Baste with the pan juices.
Bake, basting occasionally, for 30 minutes longer.
The chicken should be browned and the potatoes tender.
Skim the fat from the pan.
Pour the juices over the chicken.
Sure. The lemon chicken is also good cold.
If there is any leftover.
Which there might be if someone forgot Daylight Savings Time was kicking in or out.
