This post is actually really hard to write after being down for 2 days with a stomach bug. You should see the grimace on my face.
These came out really well. They were super easy to make and thought they had a great taste for what they were. I say that because I’m one of those sweet grits girls not savory. The taste reminded me a bit of the grits in shrimp and grits and I do like shrimp and grits. But I don’t know. Overall, I still just like butter and sugar in my grits. It’s one of those things where I’ll eat it if it’s in front of me but I probably won’t be adding this into our meal rotation. The kids didn’t care for it so no reason to have that many grits around.
Chicken Fried Steak
Getting towards the end of this book is kind of hard. Because I made all the recipes up front that sounded so yummy. So the recipes I’m making at this point are for check list only purposes. So I’m not a huge fan of chicken fried steak. It’s another one of those I’ll eat it if it’s in front of me but I don’t have it my rotation. This didn’t go 100% as planned as the oil burned the first few pieces. Mine wasn’t a nice golden brown like hers. In fact, I couldn’t even convince myself to add the picture in the collage. However, overall I thought it was a good attempt. The kids ate it and really can’t ask for too much more than that.
I will never, ever, EVER complain about fried chicken again. KFC, I’m bowed down in awe. It took me forever to get this done. PW had so many instructions about the oil temperature and I simply could not get mine to stay at the temp she required. I even switched pans midway through. In the end though I had fried chicken and it was good. The crust was super yummy and really what else could you ask from fried chicken?
Macaroni and Cheese
These were yummy. Easy and yummy. I prefer these over the crockpot versions I’ve done before.
Once again I had issues with this. When I went to cube the potatoes after they were cooked, none of the skin would stay on and the potatoes were a bit mushy. However, I threw them in the pan with the onions anyway and it was all edible.
This dish was probably the most out of my tastebuds’ wheelhouse. I’m not one to throw in a bunch of different vegetables and eat them. When I get an omelet, it’s a cheese omelet. But I have to say, this had a really good taste. Loved the Monterey Jack cheese on it. And Heather tells me it was good with the potatoes. The kids did not like it at all though so I doubt I’ll make a redo out of this one. Also? It was a lot of prep time cutting everything. I definitely would never take the time to do this in the morning.
Wow, this felt like a rough round of cooking.
