I want this engraved on my headstone.
To your question: I would have inserted a thermometer, told her the standard temperature for roasted chicken is [blah-blah] and--if she gave her standard rebuttal--would have walked out of the room and returned with 16 cookbooks, set them down in front of her and shown her the proof.
My MIL used to put chicken/turkey/pork/roasts in a 9:00 AM and we would eat them at 6:00 PM. When she was cooking, I would just gnaw on old shoe leather to whet my appetite.
