Tonight I began living off my list and made a completely new meal full of foods I have never tried to make before. I suppose that's not entirely true...we had white grape juice which I have made previous to tonight, however, everything else was brand new to my repotoire.
Side: Italian cut green beans with oil and Italian seasonings
Pasta: Linguine (never tried this type of noodle)
Main Course: Chicken Cacciatore (oh yeah, that's Italian)
Dessert: No-Bake/Whatever Cookies
I will be the first to admit that I am no chef, but all of this was rip roarin' delicious!! Quite seriously, through some cooking miracle, it WORKED! The sauce was delicately seasoned to perfection, the cookies were a perfect combination of chocolatey and coconuty goodness, and even the beans had something special to them tonight!
I really did pat myself on the back during dinner tonight...gotta relish my little victories!
