From me to you, with love

I had to go to the grocery store today so this morning I asked the kids what they wanted for dinner. They both yelled out in unison, "SLOP!"

Their two favorite things that I make are things they have lovingly named "slop" and "oil chicken."

Sad, isn't it?

I'm in the middle of making a delicious vat of slop right now. Lucky, lucky kids. Here is the recipe:

Family size box of chicken flavored Rice A Roni
About a third of one of those disgusting sausage shaped things of hamburger
1 can of green beans
1 can of corn
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup

Brown the rice. (Burn it a little, people like that.) Then follow the rest of the directions on the Rice A Roni box. Brown the hamburger, set aside. When rice is done, add hamburger, corn and beans, and cream of mushroom soup. Stir until heated through. Enjoy!

Mmmmmmmmm..... slooooppppppp......

And here is the recipe for oil chicken.

Box of frozen, individually wrapped shapeless lumps of chicken kiev
Family size box of chicken flavored Rice A Roni

Put chicken in oven for as long as the box tells you to. Cook the rice according to the box it comes in. Serve chicken on a bed of the rice. Important: Gently cut the top of the chicken open so as not to squirt the oil all over your face and give yourself (or your child) third degree oil burns. Let the rice get soaked in the chicken's oil. Enjoy!

This meal is mostly reserved for special occasions because although delicious, the oil probably isn't the healthiest thing you'll ever eat.


  1. I'm glad that you posted a picture, other wise I would have thought that you were just making that up. How can it not be good?? Yum...cream o' shroom soup:) - it's a staple of the MN diet. I better stock up while I'm at the grocery store this morning.


I would love your comments.
