Tonight I made a gigantic mess of the kitchen. GI-GAN-TIC. I made three recipes from two cookbooks, and steamed veggies to make baby food at the same time. On the stove we had fried chicken going, a pot steaming carrots and then apples, cinnamon apples in another pot, potato casserole and a loaf of bread in the oven, and bananas pulverizing in my ninja blender.

ps – that blender is magical.

Anyways, I had this amazing supper going – the chicken, potato casserole, bread, yum… – and The Boy was in his high chair and we were all dancing in the kitchen. I didn’t burn anything, everything was so yummy, and then Husby took a swig of milk. My husband, who has a stomach of steel and never thinks anything tastes/smells/looks off, said, ‘This tastes funny.’

And then I paused, because the chicken was coated in that very milk. He went to the sink and started pouring out the milk.

Friends, there were chunks. GROSS!!!

We stopped eating the chicken, put away the potatoes and loaded up the car to get something not spoiled to eat.


But it was tasty until we knew it was yucky, so here’s the recipe. It’s from the brand-spankin new Gooseberry Patch cookbook, The Christmas Table. I’m giving away a copy – click here to enter! I was going to close the giveaway but am just having too much fun reading all the Christmas memories!
