Well first off we had the mozzarella chicken for dinner
...This was an interesting dinner to make. Because, well as I have said before I don't like wine...I don't like the way it smells tastes, anything...I have never cooked with it until last week when we made French onion soup. When I made that I realized, Hey!! I like cooking with wine! So I found this yummy looking recipe With a butter garlic wine sauce and decided to make it.. Well first things first I made some seasoned bread crumbs , because I didn't have any. I threw 4 pieces of toast, a couple of shakes of Parmesan cheese, some basil and Italian seasoning, and some oregano (I never measure anything LOL) into a blender, and pulverized it :). Then I made up the little chicken packages, they looked awesome. Then it was time to simmer the garlic butter and wine together......It started fine....and then I smelled it...The hot wine smell...Oh my, It was the most awful thing I have ever smelled, (aside from hot mulled wine ewwwww) I was half tempted to throw out the sauce right then and there, And I came pretty darn close to doing just that...But then I decided that I would just put that sauce on a few pieces of chicken, enough for us all to try, The rest I put into another baking dish and used spaghetti sauce on :). I had to have a "safe" back up plan. Ok well in the next 45 min. My house started to smell AMAZING.. Just wonderful, really. Then it was time to eat. I was nervous, and scared but decided I was going to taste the wine sauced chicken first...To my surprise it was good, I mean really good....OMG was it good, The sauce ended up tasting like shrimp scampi sauce...though it could have used a bit more garlic, it was still really good....Alex didn't like it....Alex Didn't like it in the spaghetti sauce either...Though from now on That is the ONLY way I will make chicken Parmesan.. It was good too. But the wine sauce was to die for!
Then for dessert... Brownies, cooked in the crockpot...in coffee mugs....topped with....Apple pie a la mode ice cream
They were awesome
Here they are cooking
And that is what we had for dinner and dessert yesterday...and it was good!
