Dinner was in the oven and I was hoping we could eat before she had to leave. We've had a hard time getting dinner ready before she leaves in the evening. She ends up eating late, and by herself, when she gets home. I started dinner earlier in hopes we'd be able to eat together. It's nice to have the opportunity to sit down as a family to dinner. Dinner seemed to be coming along on schedule. The potatoes were nearly done cooking and ready to mashed. The lima beans were simmering. The smells from the oven were beginning to permeate the house.
"Is that cheese I smell cooking?" inquired John as he watched the hockey game from the couch in his Sunday attire. If it has cheese, he might be interested in joining us.
John had taken a break from March Madness so Jeff had gone into the other room to watch the games. Jeff waits all year for this madness. He consults his bracket to see how it is looking and asks, "What are we having for dinner? It smells good."
"I'm trying a new recipe," I reply from the kitchen.
"Is it a Pinterest recipe?" Cassie jokes. She's getting used to my Pinterest experimenting. Nobody complains because most of the Pinterest experiments have gone quite well. It seems like we have been eating the same thing for years, but Pinterest has livened up our mealtimes.
The timer buzzes and I pull the chicken out of oven. The smell of parmesan cheese fills the house. The coating has cooked to a slight brown crisp and looks delicious. When I cut into one of the chicken breasts to check it, I'm delighted to see it looks moist and tender inside. It looks like another Pinterest success! We gather around the table. The oohs and aahs continue. Yes, this recipe is a keeper.
We enjoy our meal and our time together. For dessert, no bake cookies. This recipe works every time and you guessed it, it's from Pinterest. (My Pinterest boards)
