We almost had two keepers this week! Almost! But as I was typing up the chicken dish I thought of a way to really put it over the top, so we just may try it again this week! I'll let you know how it turns out!
In any case, we did have one absolute keeper! Creamy garlic shells was an instant keeper side dish. While not quite as easy as the packaged pasta side dishes from the grocery store, this certainly was more flavorful and every ingredient was known and pronounceable. You should have seen the kids devouring these noodles. They were a great accompaniment to the main chicken dish, and it was a quiet few minutes at the table while everyone was happily chewing away. I do love those dinners when all 5 of us really enjoy all the pieces to the dinner-time puzzle.
One more week to go in my semester, though it just rolls right into the next. No rest for the weary, but at least I shouldn't have winter weather to contend with during my twice weekly commute to class. I do wish I had one week between classes but then I suppose the summer class would push one week further into the heart of summer.
I wonder what keepers we'll discover this week!
