I am so tired of the meals we have had. We are in a runt. For the most part it is because of my very picky children.
I decided to check out other blogs and websites looking for something different. My plan is to try something new almost every night for a week or more. If the family complains too much, then I’ll tack on a few more weeks.
I have some rules:
The first recipe I tried was the Salmon Turnovers from The Happy Housewife. I can’t believe I picked this recipe for my first experiment. Years ago, I bought a can of Salmon. I opened it and found bones things in there. I closed it up and threw it away, never to pick up another can of Salmon ever. Never say never. 😀
It took me five minutes to find the only brand, our grocery store carries, that is boneless and skinless. Then I did something I haven’t done in over 20 years, probably longer. Something I swore I would never do. There goes that word again. I can’t believe I am saying this…I bought, eeekkk, a tube of crescent rolls. You know the kind you use to have to whack on the counter to pop open. My hands were shaking when I picked it up.
Let’s see what is in there.
Uh…never mind. Ignorance is bliss.
I made eight of the turnovers. Four were made without the celery and onions. I figured I had a better chance of getting the kids to take a bite if the green stuff was not in there.
These were quick and easy to make. They turn out real pretty too. Ok, don’t look at how I shaped them, but isn’t the color pretty?
I enjoyed these. They were very good and very filling. Just need one. I also had a mixed green salad to go with them.
Mom: Says we’ll have these again, using whole wheat dough.
Dad: Didn’t eat with us that night.
Son: Said bread and insides were horrible and went to bed hungry.
Girls: Two ate most of it and liked it, but still went to bed hungry because they refuse to eat the salad. Oldest ate half of the bread and then announced she was not hungry. Forget about her saying she was starving before the dinner. 🙄
Next menu up is Chicken LoMein.
If you have a recipe you want me to try on your blog, please let me know and I’ll see if I can add it to the list. 🙂
