What's for dinner tonight?

Pin It
Isn't trying to decide what's for dinner one of the hardest things sometimes?  It seems like I repeat the same recipes every two weeks.  In an attempt to get inspiration on what to make for dinner, I used to spend hours watching the cooking channel.  Over time, I began to enjoy cooking for my wife and to take chances with new things.  Well, today was one of those days where I had to improvise and adapt to the world around me.  I usually make this dish with cream of mushroom soup, but when I was half way done the reality struck me like a bolt of lightening "we're out of cream of mushroom!"  Here is the accidental recipe which turned out to be a home-run!

Survival Food!!?

Pin It
So, it's not really considered a "survival food" where we live, but for some it might serve as a survival food when there is nothing left to eat.  Although I grew up in a culture where bee larvae are considered a delicacy, I probably wouldn't be able to get myself to enjoy one of these unless it was the only thing available and I haven't eaten anything for days...  Just in case you are curious, here is the recipe for those who are brave enough to try some.
