One of our favorite summer meals is a batch of brats from the grill! Put those babies on buns with horseradish mustard and I’m in heaven! (in moderation,of course!) After a long day at the pool, I was so looking forward to our old standard summer dinner, with fresh green beans from the garden and brown rice.
The grill heated up to the perfect temperature, the brats and hot dogs were placed with care. We turned them every few minutes and our mouths watered each time we put the tongs to work. With just a few minutes left, we closed the back door and sat on the couch for a few moments of pre-dinner peace.
Then, instead of going out to gather up our perfectly roasted… um… whatever’s in those, we were greeted by tongues of flames and black, crispy… um… whatever those look like.
So I retreated to my kitchen and scrounged up some chicken casserole.
- Rice: Check, already cooked
- Canned Chicken: Check, but rather use fresh
- Cream of Something Soup: Uh oh, nope! Let’s substitute Velveeta and sour cream.
- Salt and Pepper, Garlic
Put it all together and what do you get? Mediocre, but edible chicken casserole with home baked pita chips. Well, it was better than feeding them the leftover pizza and crazy bread from lunch!
