Dinner done right!

You know it's gonna be rocky at mealtime when the 5 year old comes into the kitchen, sees you cooking, droops his head dramatically, and whines "I waaaaantedd piiizzzzaaaa".

Sigh. I was trying this Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken recipe I found on Pinterest, and some fried rice. After complaining that he was NOT in the mood for Chinese food, I was pretty sure this was not going to be our most pleasant dinner table experience.

After it was finished & the table was set, he came in announcing how wonderful it smelled.   The hubby & I were both shocked.   We asked him to say the prayer, and he said "Thank you God for this day, and for this food - I think I might like it...."   it was all I could do to keep from laughing during the prayer.   Not that this is the first time I have had to bite my tongue during the dinner prayer...  especially when Hunter is the one doing the praying!  Anyway, all that to say, it was a huge hit.   Hunter loved it, even though he didn't think he would, and AJ said he was going to be very upset if even one piece of that chicken ended up in the trash.

It really was good.  The only thing I am going to try different next time is I would like to try it without the breading & frying.  I know it won't be as traditional sweet & sour that way, but I just want to see how it turns out.  All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this recipe.  And so would the boys.
