First let me start off by saying this is not MY recipe. It is from a newspaper clipping I got many years ago from Campbell's Soup. I tried to find the exact recipe online but the closest I could find is this one. (Click "this one" to link to the recipe... ha!) I tried to take a picture of my cut out recipe paper but it was not pretty so I'll save you!
Anyways... Back to Dinner! I haven't made this is such a long time. I was thinking of it for a while now and every time I'd try to make it I wouldn't have something in the house... BOO! Last night however the stars aligned and everything was in the pantry and freezer! AWESOME!
I have Tuesdays off of work because I only work 4 days (yes I know Tuesdays are an odd day to have off but it was my choice to have that day off... so there! LOL) so I took the plunge and decided I would let Chrissy help me make dinner.... This was a first for us. I usually shoo her out of the kitchen and ban her to the living room while I make dinner. It goes faster without help and since I'm usually making dinner when I get home from work and I'm on a tight schedule for dinner and all the other night time activities that need to get done before bed...
So first things first I turned on my Christmas gift from Jake! I'm super excited that I no longer have to listen to kids shows while I'm cooking!
|Best Christmas Gift Ever!|
I start pulling out dinner items and I get the nightly question "What's for dinner?" My response Chicken and Rice... Her response "Good I like Chicken"... Ha! Ya OK, can I tape that response so when you are fighting at the table with me I can have proof that you said you'd like it...
Then I got a new question, "Can I help you?" I stopped turned around to a huge smiley face... Sure I said... I figured this was an easy kid-help friendly meal. So I got all the ingredients measured out and she dumped them in the pan and stirred... I felt like a broken record saying not so fast, don't splash it but it was so cute seeing how excited she was to help me and I couldn't help but feel sad when I noticed that she didn't have to stand on anything to help me stir. My baby is getting so big!
Hope you have a wonderful dinner tonight! Let your kid(s) help you!
