I had a couple of extra hours on Friday afternoon (3ish actually), so I made the Cheats French Cassoulet. It took a little time, chopping, browning, etc. but it was really worth it. I did the oven method (not the crockpot). I served it over mashed potatoes with buttered, toasted bread we will NOT talk about the amount of butter or calories - sshh.
As you know I never know how the family will react to new meals, i.e. the Garlic Chicken - so I served the hubby up his bowl and held my breath ...
His comment, "Wow, you could sell this!"
I take this as a very high compliment from my hubby!!!
My dear daughter came home a little later, with a friend, of course (we always seem to have an extra girl or two over the weekends) ... and while they didn't say much, they both sat at the table and ate it - so I'm marking that down as a success too!
I'm trying out these recipes because I'm really wanting to start having dinner parties ... I think they are a lost art. I'm not sure if this will be on one of those menus, but this will be made in our house again!!
