Mouth-Watering Punch

12 oz. can orange juice concentrate
12 oz. can lemonade concentrate
10 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 Tbs. almond flavoring
1 Tbs. vanilla

Add a 2 liter bottle of 7-Up before you serve. Such a refreshing, mouth-watering combination of tastes. I can never get enough of this stuff.

Chicken in Milk

LOVE this recipe, especially for Sundays! Looking at the ingredients, you just have to go on faith that the flavor is amazing :)

1 whole chicken
1 stick butter
1/2 cinnamon stick
handful fresh sage, leaves picked
2 lemons, zested
6 garlic cloves, skin left on
1 pint whole milk

Preheat oven to 375 degreesF(190degrees C) and find a snug-fitting pot for the chicken. Season it generously all over with salt and pepper, and fry it in the butter, turning the chicken to get it golden brown everywhere you can. Remove from heat, put chicken on a plate, and throw away the butter left in the pot. Put the chicken back in the pot with the rest of the ingredients, and cook in oven for 1 1/2 hours. Baste with juice if you remember, or not, whatever. The lemon zest will split the milk, so it looks a little curdled, but it makes a fantastic sauce. To serve, pull the meat off the bones, pile it onto a platter, and pour over the juice, curds and all. You're welcome.
