Snafu of the Week
So my husband is a chef. Yes, a chef. I am spoiled. I am over weight. I am loved. I only am responsible for dinner once a week. Yes, once a week. Usually my night is taco night, nacho night, or taco salad night. My favorite to cook and eat. Last week I decided to try a crock pot meal I got from Spark Recipes, you can find the recipe here. I altered it a bit by taking out the soups and just using chicken broth. I read the reviews at first and everyone kept saying how mushy it was. I figured since I took the soups out, I might skip on some of the mushiness. But boy was I wrong. The smell was delicious through out the day, it looked awesome through out the day. Everyone was ready for dinner when it was time.
I opened the pot and stirred it around......and it was mush......the broccoli mushed in, the rice was over cooked, the chicken just fell apart (but that was good), it was a bowl of mush. My husband was not impressed. My son Jorden was weird-ed out. My daughter Delena only ate the chicken. How she could tell what was what, still boggles my mind. I did have some positive reactions though. Jaylynn loved it. I just think she was really hungry, I mean, she even had seconds! I liked it, not so much the texture, but the taste was good. And best of all, it was perfect consistency for my 9 month old, Desmond. He ate a nice heaping bowl of it. So this snafu was not all bad.
