I have a 6 lb. roaster chicken I want to cook for dinner tonight, which will take a couple of hours to cook, which means putting it in the oven by about 3:00. But, I have to go get my daughter at daycare at 4pm and it's about a 30-minute round trip. Do I:
a) Put the chicken in and leave the oven on while I go get her (please don't tell my insurance company);
b) Put the chicken in and turn the oven off while I'm gone, and turn it back on when I return (will I have Sam and Ella over for dinner?); or
c) Just cook the damn bird tomorrow?
I have stuff in the oven right now which should be done by 3pm, so I can't put it in there now.
