It rained all weekend, and has continued raining all week. The sun is supposed to shine tomorrow and for the next five days, though! Yesterday morning i got tired of sitting around the house, so i got dressed, grabbed my umbrella and went for a walk to return my library books. I found two new books to take out, and when i got home I decided to make a recipe for dinner from one of them. This one is called "Taste of Home: The Busy Family Cookbook". Here is a picture of the dish, it looks so delicious!
One Dish Chicken with Vegetables.
1 envelope onion soup mix.
1/2 tsp garlic powder.
1/4 cup olive oil.
4 boneless skinless chicken halves.
4 medium potatoes, cut into chunks.
4 medium carrots, cut into 1/4 inch slices.
In a small bowl, combine soup mix, oil and garlic powder. Spoon half into a resealable bag, add veggies, seal bag and turn to coat. Spoon remaining mix into another bag, add chicken, turn to coat. Bake in ungreased 11 by 7 inch pan covered for 15 minutes; at 425 F. Uncover and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until juices run clear and veggies are tender.
OK, so mine does not look quite as pretty, but i forgot to cover the dish for the first 15 minutes. It tastes alright, just a bit burnt. I took some to work for dinner last night and someone in the lunchroom sniffed the air and said something smelled 'Toxic'. I told him all i could smell was my burnt dinner...i am hoping that is not what he smelled to. I am not going to give up on this one, I think I will try it again soon.
Lately around here I have been reading about a new webpage called Pintrest, it is this really neat site that you can create boards, like folders, and pin things to them. I finally remembered about it look enough to investigate and sign up; so far,I have 5 boards, four being for recipes! If you want to find me over there, I am going by NatashaMarieM. Or, just look for my burnt chicken, because I will be pinning it there soon!
Hope everyone is having a great week, i'm keeping my fingers crossed for the sun tomorrow!!
