ugh!! My first dinner made in my very own house was a disaster!! I tried so hard . . . and I really CAN cook . . . sigh. . First, I got a recipe from my mother-in-law for chicken and rice. Bought the groceries, was excited. I then forgot to cover the chicken and rice with foil which I realized AFTER I pulled it out of the oven 1.5 hours later. I also cut the tip of my thumb off with a brand new junk knife while I was cutting ingredients for a salad and spilled A&W all over the floor when it exploded upon opening. None of this should have happened. . . sooo . . as it was. . . we ate the poor dried out and hard rice with chicken and it wasn't all that bad. Clayton bandadged my thumb up and I have since cleaned all A&W off of the floor, cabinets, countertops, etc.
Tomorrow night I shall try a roast in the crockpot . .
