So you may have read my last post about how I hate cooking.  Crazy isn’t it? I have 8 children yet I hate cooking. Seriously. I hate it.  So I decided to take the initiative and change my ways for 2013.  Yes! I have decided to cook atleast one real meal a week – in other words, one meal that isn’t from a box!

To start, I decided I should go simple, so as not to get overly anxious and irritated. Chicken I figured is easy enough so that was what I made.  One dish of chicken was seasoned with shake n’ bake (I gave myself some slack and convinced myself that technically shake n’ bake doesn’t count as a boxed meal – just go with it please).  My bravery went up a whole notch for the other dish of chicken.  I used a bit of oil and montreal steak seasoning! You have to understand, I rarely use any type of spices and or seasoning on anything so this my friends is     a huge step! 
here are my chicken dishes before they went in th oven.

Here is where I became more bolder – spices!
I had to leave to take Marie to training so I wasn’t able to see the children’s reactions when they saw what I had made for them.  However, when I returned there wasn’t much left so obviously they enjoyed it.
Of course, I could be completely wrong and may just end up with a clogged toilet from food that they claimed to have eaten……………
If you have any meal suggestions send them my way! Please!
Until next time,
