Last Night for dinner John and I had chicken! I was quite excited about this, since we hadn’t found a chicken yet that met our sustainable, humane, organic standards. I stumbled across Murray’s Chicken Breasts, at a Publix in College Park (I don’t ever shop over there, but I should since they have quite a selection of meat and dairy that fit our needs, compared to our Publix up...
