What's for dinner? Hits and a miss

Hello friends!

Today I whipped up a quick dinner of whatever we had on hand.
I am going to share the hits and misses of this easy dinner.
Believe me, there was a MISS!

Have you seen these??
Ooh Aah Swiss cheese, portabella, and button mushrooms stuffed in chicken!
You just bake them for 45 minutes...more on that later...

I also had some little potatoes and followed the recipe on the back of the bag.
You mix the potatoes with melted butter, garlic, lemon, salt, and Parmesan.


Cover and bake for 30 minutes at 350. 


Then uncover and bake for 10 more minutes.

I wanted to add another veggie so I tried this Steamfresh Garlic Cauliflower.

and voila!
The potatoes were FABULOUS! 
I will be making them again. 
But next time I am going to use Little Mommy, Big Appetites 
technique and smash them and roast them some more.

The Steamfresh Cauliflower was impressive. 
I thought it was going to be bland but it was actually really, really good. 
I will also buy them again!

Now for the chicken. Gee doesn't it look appetizing?
Rubbery, banquet food at best.
Definitely will NOT be buying that again!

Overall, this meal was a hit though. Go me :)

    Don't you just hate it when you buy food, prepare it, think it is going to be delicious meal, and it is not good? Especially at today's prices. At least the rest of it was good.

  2. I have just not been in the mood to cook, unless it's crockpot. It's still too hot :(
    Can't wait for fall and cooler weather- then I can make beans!!!
