I went through this entire cookbook and have discovered that some menus are soups only, desserts only, cookies only or drinks only. I am piecing together several menus and am having difficulty in making a freakin' decision. Everything is just too good! Tomorrow I will narrow it down and post the final menu.
On another note, just because it comes out of a box or package doesn't mean that is the way it needs to be made. You can always experiment with different things to spice up any dinner. For example, I am not that good at making homemade soup so I buy the Bear Creek brand. Our favorite is Creamy Potatoe. Last night I was craving soup. I made the Creamy Potatoe and just looked at it's monotonal coloring. Boring. I ended up adding Mexicorn and chunks of red potatoes. It was so good! I also made sweet, yellow cornbread. It was the perfect meal for a rainy night!
Feel free to post your comments on how you might spice up a boxed, canned or straight out of the bag dinner!
