Sundays Plan Turned Into Mondays Dinner

United States
March 5, 2018 4:26pm CST
Yesterday my daughter said she wanted to cook dinner and make fried chicken cutlets (which we haven't had in ages). I was looking forward to them as well as not having to cook. But, it turned out that the day got the better of us, flew by faster than we expected and by the time we realized it was dinner time she didn't feel like doing all that work. So, we ordered pizza and now we're having the chicken tonight. No breading and frying for me. I put it all in the crock pot with some honey teryaki marinade and it smells delicious. We'll have it with rice and streamed broccoli. I know my daughter won't care what she comes home to as today was her working day and driving home with a two hour commute is horrible. She'll come in the house starving and exhausted. Tonight we'll relax and watch the auditions for the Voice and I'm sure she'll go to bed early. Tomorrow she's off so I'm hoping we can get to the supermarket and get our shopping done. Another storm is heading our way for Wednesday and I don't think I can make it through another storm without snacks!!!

Does your daughter have a two-hour commute each day every working day? Wow, that would be so exhausting.

She has a two hour commute going to work and coming home which is exhausting but most weeks she only goes into the office two or three days. Hopefully one of these days she'll find a job closer to home.

@Marilynda1225 I'm glad she doesn't have to do it every day.

Ooh, we never had a marinade like that before. We do a lot of marinades for chicken, that is something I need to suggest to my mom.

It's really good and gives a nice spin to plain old chicken

I love fried chicken cutlets, it's not the healthiest food so I refrain to make the cutlets too often, but I love them.

The crock pot saved the day! Enjoy your chicken dinner! We'll probably watch the Voice too after coming home from tae kwon do - we'll have a late dinner of Japanese noodles (udon).

Both pizza, and fried chicken sound good to me! We'll be getting the storm too, supposedly. Hope if we do, that its the snow we get this time. Hope you get your snackies!
