New Delhi is just off the 80 from Dallas, right? Right?

i am in a culinary rut.
i came to another brilliant realization, that i don't have a whole lot going on in the variety dinner department. i tend to cook the same things over and over.
mind you, the Husband isn't complaining. he knows better. he might end up cooking.
so tonight, on my Holy Pilgrimage to Target (face it: you go for toilet paper and end up with a hundred freaking dollar bill)for toilet paper (see above), i came home with some cute oblong tins from the dollar section, polo shirts for Brendan, colored pencils...well, you get the idea.
but when i saw this box dinner, it was all over with.
it looks soooo yummy! it must go home with me!! i must cook it! tonight!
and originally, i was thinking of making a chicken curry. so i've gone from New Delhi to Dallas and haven't even left the O.C.
it's in the oven as we speak. it is just a different road than what i originally envisioned.
but let's face it: with the amount of sleep i got, i could screw up the curry and turn it into heaven only knows what.
and while i'm feeling pretty dang proud of myself, i just realized that i gotta do this again Wednesday. any ideas?

Since most of my meals recently have consisted of either sandwiches or pasta, I went shopping today and picked up a bag of frozen chicken breasts. We have several bags of frozen veggies in the freezer, but no meat to go with them.

I also got a rotisserie chicken, and a bag of salad to have tonight. Pretty proud of myself too!

Good luck on the quest for new cuisine!

I LOVE Archer Farms! It's one of my favorite brands. I really enjoy the spearment water too. Anyway, was it good??? I'll have to look closer at the grocery section next time I'm in there.

No new ideas, but I want to know - was the Tamale Pie good?

I'm with Steff...I love archer farms too, but haven't tried that yet. Tell us how it tuned out. I love to cook and I'm good at it, but I'm a basic yummy food cook because I have a house full of picky eaters.
