I’m starting to think I have a real problem. I started this Chicken A La King post three weeks ago and never finished it. But it’s not just this post…I started reading 4 books and have yet to finish any of them. I love to wash laundry and dry laundry but can never get the folding done. AND I have 5 bottles of shampoo in my shower with an inch of shampoo left in them.
Psychoanalyze me. What’s my deal? The only thing I can finish is an entire plate of brownies! Do I have adult A.D.D.?
I love having people over for dinner but I started realizing how expensive it was getting every time I ran to the grocery store to get ready for the meal. So I am always trying to come up with easy and inexpensive meals for entertaining. That’s the first thing that came to mind when I made this recipe. It’s easy, good, and cheap! Serve it over rice, noodles, toast, or a big fat biscuit like I did!
