If you’ve read my blog for more than 3 days, you know that I can’t cook for shit. I do OK baking certain things (cupcakes, brownies) but when it comes to cooking, I’m so lost it’s ridiculous.
I want to change this. So, I’m starting small. Before we met up with the personal trainer tonight, I made Cream of Mushroom Chicken and baked asparagus and Brussels sprouts.
Wow. Just typing that and I’m already feeling fancy.
Cream of Mushroom Chicken
- 6 very thin chicken breasts (thawed)
- 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
- 1/2 can of water
- Chili Powder (don’t ask)
- Shredded Cheese
Baked Brussels Sprouts and Asparagus
- Light Olive Oil (I have the spray kind, which really helps with portion control.)
- Sea Salt
- Lemon juice
It all tasted pretty good. I think there’s room for improvement, but it’s a start. I didn’t go overboard on any ingredients because honestly, I’m not comfortable enough to experiment right now and don’t have much in the house.
Oh, and Brussels sprouts passed the taste test with me no matter what ya’ll said on the blog’s Facebook page.
And lastly, I found this online today:
Sweet baby Jesus. I never thought to put Reese’s cups in Peanut Blossoms before. I’ve always used Hershey Kisses. I must have these.
Oh, and here’s and old picture that’s proof I can make Peanut Blossoms. And dye my hair badly.
