My first roast chicken

Here's a picture of the first whole chicken I ever roasted.  It's obviously a "before" picture, and unfortunately I forgot to take a "when it's done" picture.  Craig and Kristi both said it tasted good.  The veggies were carrots, rutebegas, turnips, red potatoes, an onion, and leeks.  I used this recipe, and would recommend it whole-heartedly.
Also, the chicken cost less than it weighed.  Yes, they were different units of measurement, but still... The chicken weighed four pounds and cost less than $4.  Next time I think I'll splurge and get a happy chicken if I can find one.  Plus, we can make stock this weekend out of the bones!
