sheet pan chicken w/ roasted baby potatoes

this time of year is a food bloggers nightmare.  truly.  the fact that the sun goes down at 4:30 before dinner is even in the oven means that my photos turn out to be an embarrassing attempt at trying to make good food look appealing and it's not happening.

does anyone have a light box they want to lend me?

my shattered iPhone and i gave up at an attempt and instead i'm sticking with the photo from the recipe i made.
thanks daylight savings.  and winter.  and no light box.
jen fail. blog fail.
dinner win.
