Comfort Zone

I really hate grocery shopping, especially at our commissary, because even though I'm there early, they never have my dog food or bacon if it happens to be on sale. It really irks me, but that's not the point of this post.

I decided to go outside of my comfort zone of easily prepared meals and frozen foods and actually try cooking something different. I picked up a package of Shake and Bake for chicken and noticed a recipe on the back for Easy Chicken Cacciatore Bake. I looked at all the ingredients necessary, and wouldn't you know, I knew exactly what they all were. Whoopee!

I'm excited to try it out tonight, even though I know Addison doesn't like zucchini and diced tomatoes, but oh well, that's why I bought fresh broccoli for him and I will attempt my first ever boiling of fresh broccoli. Yes, I'm that bad.

Tomorrow night I will try out spaghetti pie. I found a very simple recipe for it at www.recipes.com. My mom used to make it when we were younger and I loved it.

Will update tomorrow how it all went! Wish me luck!
