Dinner In A Hurry


When I found out that I was going to have hungry grandchildren to visit yesterday I wanted to make something quick and easy so that I could sit and visit while it cooked.  Due to a time crunch on the visit as the boys had to return home to get ready for school for today it had to be a quick meal.  Their mom had said that she could pick up a pizza on the way.

Homemade and nutritious for me always wins hands down.  I said I had already started to just come and visit.

I took chicken thighs and placed them in my roaster pan where I poured Wishbone Lite Italian Dressing on them enough to well coat them.  I covered with foil and placed them in the oven at 350 F.

I then proceeded to peel potatoes.  Both yellow butter and Red potatoes since I did not have enough of the yellow butter ones.  I placed them in a pan of water cubed with a hint of sea salt and let them boil with the cover slightly ajar.

I then took one container of Vanilla Yogurt, a container of Sour Cream, several varieties of fruit that I had (Mine were canned although frozen do work well) and 1/4 cup of marshmallows  I mixed them together in the bowl and let them sit in the fridge.

I was able to sit and visit, only being interrupted by my timer every fifteen minutes to turn the chicken.

The potatoes were finished and we added one stick of butter and one container of sour cream to whip them with the beater..

The thighs were done and we ate.  The meat fell easily from the bone and was very tender.  To have the boys comment how good the chicken was felt good.

They were surprised when I said that I had dessert.  First response was “What is that?”  I handed each a fork to stick in the mixture to taste.

Each had a big bowl of it and the last one finished the bowl.  I had a bag of coconut on the side to sprinkle on the top if the wanted it.  (I do not care for coconut so it always is a side option for me.)

A side salad was the other option which was offered.  Simple cherry tomatoes and romaine lettuce with a choice of dressings.

Complete meal that was quick and easy with no measuring and I was able to spend time with my guests.

Thank you for reading.
