What's For Dinner?

I like to cook. I like to try new recipes. I am always on the look out for new and different things. My family doesn't always like some of my experiments. Tonight's experiment worked out really well. I saw French Chicken in a Pot on Today a few weeks ago and have been wanting to try it. Not only was it good. It was ridiculously easy. The folks around here were BIG FANS of dinner as well. The only thing I did differently was add some mushrooms to the pan sauce. I had some I needed to use before they went bad so I sliced them and added them to the pan sauce. Worked out perfectly. I also discovered that O&C really love mushrooms. I made some roasted vegetables to go with it. The dudes at 2 helpings. Diva wouldn't touch her vegetables but ate 2 helpings of the chicken.
The vegetables I roasted were sweet potatoes, parsnips and carrots. I diced them and tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper. I baked them at 425 for about 30 minutes. You can cool them on paper towels to soak up some extra oil or just leave it. I do both. You can do this with about any vegetable. Carrots, parsnips and broccoli are the most popular around here.

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken.

Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back)
Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs.
Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven.
Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine! She came over today to make some pasta. While she…

I Just Taught Myself How To Add Pictures To My Blog...

It's about time I figured it out.
We went and stayed with family over New Year's. Diva rode a horse and a big green tractor. 

                  She thought she was a VERY big deal getting to ride Goldie on New Year's Day



Mr. Hubs dabbles in photography. He never gives himself enough credit. He had to watch Shrek and Donkey for a few hours this weekend. This is how he spent his time...
