Back into the kitchen

I used to be a big fan of Kenny Rogers Rotissries here for many years. But of late, I felt that the quality of the food served has taken a plunge. However, I must add that their Corn Muffins still taste as good as ever and I would sometimes just pop by to pick up a few whenever cravings hit. I love roast chicken.
