we had pie for dinner tonight

Tonight while I was making dinner, I saw some blueberries in the fridge. They needed to be used badly. While digging around I also found a pie crust.  I really wanted blueberry cobbler.  So I just kind of threw some stuff together.  Thank goodness I did.  The rest of the meal I cooked was HORRIBLE! 

I baked chicken marinated in Lawry's Sundried Tomato marinade.  I made brown rice and mixed vegetables.  The chicken was so dry...yuck! I'm not sure why I ever waste my time baking chicken.  I'm not good at it.   The veggies were nasty.  The brown rice was I guess I cooked it wrong also.  Every once in awhile I'm allowed to mess up. All we could do is laugh. 
 Have you seen Christmas Vacation?  Remember the way Clark was chewing the dry turkey that was over cooked. That was the scene at our house tonigh. 

Hey...every once in awhile it is ok to eat pie for dinner :)

Thanks for the laugh...I could totally see you chewing your chicken like Clark Griswold:) I'm no good at baking chicken either. I think I am afraid to underbake it, so I always end up cooking it way too long! That pie sounds so yummy:)
