Dream Dinners - R.I.P.

I'm officially done.

When Friday night's dinner went straight from the oven to the garbage can, I decided that life was just too damn short to do this any longer.

The Chicken and Dumplings were atrocious. Vile. I just couldn't bring myself to eat it, and I couldn't, in good conscience, force Dylan to do so either. Did I mention how disgusting this dish was?

Edited to add this photo. Note the raw, oozing biscuit dough (I cooked the time suggested) and the spongy-looking chicken. I'm rather proud of the way this photo demonstrates the utter skankiness of this dish. Doesn't it look horrid???

Have you all heard of freecycle? It's a very cool organization that runs via email list. People post "wants" or "offers" and others on the list respond. For example, a few weeks ago someone posted that they wanted candles. I had some crappy candles that I didn't want cluttering up my house any longer. I responded, and one day later she came and picked them up off my front porch. I love freecycling. It's a great way to get rid of things that probably wouldn't sell on eBay and aren't worth holding on to until a garage sale.

I plan to put the remainder of my Dream Nightmare Dinners on freecycle sometime today. I can't eat another one. Just can't do it.
