So, I realize this is not the most attractive looking dinner I've ever posted, but I'd love to see YOU try and make that look pretty :)
Pretty or not, it was good. Heath loved it and asked me to make it again sometime (poor guy never gets repeats since I make new recipes every week). While I didn't love it, it wasn't bad.
To me it had a heavy ketchup taste to it. Makes sense since there's a cup of the stuff in there, but it was very noticeable to me...Heath, not so much. He loved the flavor.
Jesse liked the vegges, but not the meat. Eh. I'll take what I can get with him.
Even though it bakes for 2 1/2 hours, it's a very easy recipe. This is most likely a weekender though. For people who work, your'e not gonna be home to put this in the oven at 3pm so it's ready by 5:30. So you may want to save this for a day off.
Ok guys, lots to do today! Cleaning, laundry, a meeting, grocery shopping, more laundry, and then helping the boy build an 'Epic Train Track' (that's what he said...'Epic') in his room this evening. Have a great day and I'll see y'all tomorrow!
