Poulet Poché Au Vin BlancChicken with White Wine and Aromatic Veggies
Serves 4 to 6
Adapted from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume II, by Julia Child and Simone Beck
This is a very simple, basic poached chicken that Julia recommended serving with steamed rice topped with minced parsley and a glass of the same white wine that you used to cook the chicken. Sounds great! (this recipe was copied from Julia Child's book Mastering the Art of French Cooking)

2 carrots, sliced 1 1/2 inches long2 onions, sliced3 stalks celery, sliced1 cup chicken stock or 3 tablespoons butter2-1/2 pounds chicken pieces (any combo of breasts, legs, thighs)Salt and pepper1 1/2 cup dry white wine2 cups chicken stock. The following herbs tied in cheesecloth:1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon, 1 bay leaf, 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, 4 sprigs fresh parsley)
1- Steam the veggies in the chicken stock or in butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Reserve.
2- Arrange the chicken in one layer in a large sauté pan. Season with salt and pepper.
3- Pour the wine and stock over the chicken and tuck the herb packet into the liquid.
4- Simmer, covered, over very low heat until done, about 25 minutes for dark meat, 20 for white.

NOTE: Poaching means slow cooking so that chicken pieces will retain their shape, and will be tender. Boiling will toughen the meat!
5- Serve with the vegetables.

My family took the Super Wubble Bubble Ball on this past weekend! We opened the box and found the instructions were simple to read and follow. It came with an air machine to blow it up, one patch in case of a puncture and a Vaseline like jelly to rub on the bubble to make blowing it up easier.

Once we blew it up,(and yes it will blow up to 3 feet), the fun started! It was bounced on each other, thrown up in the air and placed on head's to fit like a hat! It with stood being bounced against the house and kicked across the front pasture,(we live in the country with acreage) by the time we gave it all we had, it looked like a very dirty, brown dusty huge inflated 3 foot pink ball! Yes it withstood all the fu…
