Lemon Herbs Roasted Chicken Drumsticks 檸檬香草烤雞腿

当我在准备这道檸檬香草烤雞腿时,老公为我播了这首好听的英文老歌。
因为歌词里正好有我材料中的迷迭香和百里香。
一面听歌,一面准备食物,好轻松自在!:) 
While I was preparing this Lemon Herbs roasted chicken, my hubby is playing a lovely english folk song for me. The song called 'Scarborough Fair' which the herbs of parsley, sage,rosemary and thyme are repeated in each verse in the lyric. 
Yeah! A pretty nice song...It makes me feel more relaxed, lol...
Scarborough Fair ~ by Simon & Garfunkel
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme
顺便分享这首英文老歌给你听 :)
