Talking I cooked!!!

I cooked!!!!!!!!!

I made it from a recipe!
its called "Crispy Chicken with Asparagus Sauce" from campbells kitchen.com

I can't believe it. I browned the chicken just like the recipe says, and I didn't burn it this time!!!!
I followed everything word for word- except the 2tablespoons of veg oil, because I did that, and the first 2 pieces of chicken didn't look so good, so I said what the heck and put in a lot more oil, fried the chicken and it is actually looking good!
I stayed infront of that stove, and did not leave, because I did not want to waste the chicken like I usually do.
I followed the sauce recipe word by word, but added a little more water, the rice looks good.

*sigh* hope my toddler likes it! she is taking an early nap right now, so when she wakes up I will feed it to her.

I already ate, and it tasted really good to me, a different type of food than what we usually eat.

anyways, I am happy now, and I will be extremely happy if my girl likes it.

Good for YOU!

Don't gauge your success on what a toddler thinks, tho... they often don't know what's good. Their taste buds are underdeveloped, to be generous.

be thrilled that you made something you would like to eat again. and keep on keeping on! Just like swimming, just jumping into the pool can be the hardest part!

What she said!!!

I have 3 kids, 1 wont eat most anything, but I'm not cooking around him. He can learn to eat something besides pizza and fish sticks!!! It's a battle but well worth it!

thanks for all your support guys!!!!!!!!!

My little girl actually liked it! I couldn't belive that she ate it, I said to her "I will give you icecream after!"........ and I guess she understood (2years1month). And she ate it almost all!!!!!!!!!

I am happy, and I will keep trying new things.

I never had a lot of variety growing up-but now I can change that with my little girl.

thanks again!
