Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 1

Recipe 294
Chicken No. 14,754-Chicken Bustard (in Basil-Mustard Sauce)
Matt rating ****

So I was able to start tonight as we have a sick baby in the house and were unable to attend the family dinner we were supposed to go to. Right after church I headed to the local Sunflower Market to get my produce and stuff to make salad to go along with tonight's dinner.

I chose tonight's meal based on the fact that I got a 5 pound package of chicken when I went grocery shopping yesterday. Because of copyright rules I won't post the entire recipe here, but I'll note the ingredients used.

EVOO (If you are a Rachael Ray fan you know what this term is!)
Chicken stock
Dijon mustard
Sour cream
Basil (fresh from my garden!)

This meal was very simple to make and turned out delicious. The mustard and lemon flavors were dominate and were so good paired with the chicken. I placed the chicken on a bed of egg noodles (not in the recipe) and topped with the sauce. I added a simple salad of red leaf lettuce (on sale at the Sunflower Market for 88 cents!) and a lemon vinaigrette to compliment the lemon and thyme flavors in the sauce. Matt and I both thought this was a great recipe and definitely a keeper!

I will post a "Matt rating" for every recipe, with a possible five stars(*****). Keep in mind that Matt is a very picky eater so I will note my agreement or disagreement as necessary ;-)

Not sure what's for dinner tomorrow night, although I have a feeling it will call for ground beef, since I picked up four pounds of it yesterday! I guess I'd better get back to my kitchen and freeze all the extra meat I bought!
