-Chili Almond Asparagus (I found this recipe on Pinterest...really are you surprised?) And let me tell you this was to DIE for!!!! This kids didn't eat this, they opted for a regular side salad. But veggies are veggies so let them have the salad.
-Baked apples with sweet vanilla milk for dessert.
Oven Fried Drumsticks
This is a favorite at our house. It also makes really really yummy chicken fingers!!
The roasted potatoes are my kids favorite way of doing potatoes. Here's what I do, it's really very basic, but they are so yummy.
Roasted Dill potatoes(forgive me for no real measurements...and no picture)
6 potatoes, cut up in bite sized pieces
Splash of olive oil
Dill seasoning(I have a Pampered Chef seasoning that we love...but it is almost all gone)
Place potatoes on baking sheet. Add oil and seasonings and stir to coat. Bake in oven warmed at 400F for 30-40minute or until golden brown. I usually stir them after about 20 minutes or so so that they get nice and toasty on all sides.
For dessert we had baked apples. I didn't have any ice cream or whip cream to go with them so instead I made some sweet vanilla milk( I just made this up on a whim but it turned out really nice)
Sweet Vanilla Milk
In a sauce pan over high heat bring 1 1/2 cups whole milk, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar to a boil, reduce hear and let simmer for 20 minutes. serve over baked apples.
It was the perfect touch.
