Yummy and Easy

Yummy and easy... yep, that's my kind of recipe. I found it on the back of the Stove Top Stuffing box. I changed it a little but it was still yummy. You can find the recipe here. I tried to find the recipe on Kraft's website and it wasn't there. So I had to find it from an outside source but this is exactly the same recipe that I used from the back of the box. What changes did I make? I used chicken instead of turkey and cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken. I'd like to think that I made the changes because I took artistic license and made changes to better suit my families taste. However, the truth is that both of the changes were purely accidental. The chicken? I forgot to buy turkey on the last trip to the grocery store and I had chicken on hand. The cream of mushroom soup? I grabbed the wrong can out of the pantry. The cream of chicken is still in there!

So, did the family like it? Hubby, son and I did. I put some in the baby food grinder and the baby gobbled it right up. The picky three year old is a different story however. All of the ingredients in this recipe are things that she likes when eaten individually. I guess putting them all together changes that for her. She disliked it so much it made her sick. Literally. All. over. herself. and the chair, and the floor. Ya, it was ugly.

So, today I learned how to make a yummy and easy recipe but I also learned that sometimes you need to have a plan B. I also learned that there is yet another way that my daughter is just like her mommy. (I guess we pass on the good genes as well as the bad) So she's picky, I love her anyways!


  1. I will try this recipe.
    Although, I will not share 3year olds experience with my kids. The power of suggestion is great and I want no suggestions as "yuck" put upon them before they try. Afterwards, if they like or not, I will share 3 year old's story. hehe...sorry for you mess.
    Question for you though: what is plan B?

  2. Glad you asked!
    Here's plan B:
    1. Take a deep breath.
    2. Scoop up daughter and deposit in bathtub.
    3. Remove her from tub and give lots of hugs reassuring her that it's OK. (Throwing up freaks her out.)
    4. Call Chairman of meeting that I am supposed to be at to tell I'll be late.
    5. Dress the daughter in favorite Hawaiian sundress. (What the heck, it makes her happy.)
    6. Return to kitchen to assist hubby in vomit clean up.
    7. Nurse the baby who was crying hysterically because he was being neglected.
    8. Break out the lunchmeat and cheese for dinner #2.
    9. Leave for meeting and arrive 20 minutes late.
    10. Stop on the way home and pick up iced coffee for hubby and myself to reward ourselves for surviving the caos.

    That was plan B.
