Can you believe.....we didn't have King Ranch Chicken for dinner last night. It was doomed to fail from the get-go, I tell you. I had taken out chicken to thaw, and then put that into a pot to boil while I prepped everything else. I noticed I didn't have a can of cheese soup, like I usually use, so eh....no biggie, I thought....I'd just use a can of cream of mushroom. Problem solved. Then I looked in the fridge. Hmm. Only 10 tortillas. (I don't use flour tortillas because I don't like the texture of them when they've been mixed with soups.) BUT.......I thought maybe I could make it work. So, after a while of boiling the chicken, I go to take the chicken off the stove and cool it so I can shred it. It's only then that I notice my chicken is ......... grey. Yes, I said grey. I stood there looking at it thinking 'Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....' and then I start trying to figure out why I would have GREY chicken.
and then it hits me.
The pot I used to boil the chicken was the same pot Ryan used to dye her clothes BLACK in.......and just possibly, she didn't wash it well enough.
So. out went the chicken, because I'm pretty sure that would not have been safe to eat.
.......and there I stand in the kitchen thinking 'ok...since I only took out chicken and there's not that much time to thaw anything else, I guess it's gonna have to be something meatless.....'. I was tired, I was starting to get crabby, and I was losing the desire to cook real fast. Soooo........I decided on......Pasta Alfredo. I had a jar of Alfredo, I had pasta, so there it was. The kids loved it. I, on the other hand, was grossed out and only ate a very small amount. Ick.... just wasn't in the mood for it, I guess, because normally I love alfredo......
Anyway......a couple of people have asked how the pizza (from the last entry) was.
To be honest, it was gross. I don't like Little Cesears. I DO like Hungry Howie's (and they do flavored crusts), and I told Jesse so. LOL He said HE liked Little Cesears better, and I was like 'A-HA! The REAL reason ....you lowly sad man!!!' heh heh.......but to be perfectly honest.......of all the chain pizza places around here........I like...........
Chuck E. Cheese.
Don't tell the kids I actually like that place or they'll try to con me into going all the time.
I don't know what's for dinner tonight, though.......CCD classes are on, I think. We're supposed to get 'weather' but considering last weeks' classes were cancelled because of 'potential weather' and there was nothing, I think we're probably gonna end up going.
Hmm....maybe I can talk Jesse into buying dinner....
