The Beverly Hillbillies and Baby Chickens!!

Ok, I know you are probably wondering what in the world does The Beverly Hillbillies have to do with Baby Chickens!!

Well, last night for dinner I decided to try something different for once. Maybe something a little more "refined", if you will, then our normal everyday Hamburger Helper. Don't get me wrong we still love our old faithful HH. Heck, if it wasn't for that "Big Daddy" would of starved our first year of marriage. Seriously.

So, since I was off yesterday in celabration of Martin Luther King and had the extra time, I decided I would make this...

~Cornish Hens
~Mashed Potatoes with Gravy
~Green Bean Casserole

I was so proud of my menu, until "Muscles" came in and said "Do you really expect us to eat baby chickens?" Ok, so much for some culture. All, I could envision was our last name being changed to the Clampetts!!

So, after a little convincing from "Big Daddy" and myself, we finally get "Muscles" to try it. And believe it or not, he seems to enjoy it. Which makes my heart smile. Until, "Miss Priss" walks in from work and I tell her that her plate is in the mircrowave and as she opens the door to the microwave and looks at her plate, she turns to me and says "We are having baby chickens?"

Look out Beverly Hills here we come.....

Thanks for the comment on my blog! Felt better to know that I am not the only one that goes through these things. I think it is the season. Cold and gray! Praying we both come out of it !
