Yet another meal my children have rejected based on it's looks alone.

Really starting to piss me off. Now I know why my friend Jude quick cooking when her youngest turned 12. They wouldn't eat what she fixed.

I made Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken. I wasn't too sure about it, but I figured what the hell, give it a try.
I added a half of an onion chopped up instead of onion powder (which I don't have) and at the end I tossed in about a 1/4 cup of white wine and a half a pound of peas (gotta sneak in those veggies somewhere dammit). It's actually pretty damned good. Next time I won't use 6 chicken thighs (as suggested in the dead tree version), it was too much meat. I'm thinking four would be plenty and I'd double the peas. But I threw in what I had. Oh, and next time a handful of chopped parsley I think would go really good.

Good acted like I was trying to poison them.

No food until breakfast! The kitchen is now closed.
