Purple chickens

Ok so Cam at A Women's Place posted about her husband describing the appearance of her dinner as "Disgusting". I linked her blog entry here.

I have had one very memorable experience when my food looked ... well.... less than appetizing. One night we had .. lavender chicken for dinner. No the chicken didn't have lavender in it. The color of the chicken was lavender.

It was one of those well we have this and this and this so let me try putting all of it together and see what we get. I made stuffed chicken breast in a wine sauce. I stuffed the chicken breasts with onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and cream cheese. Sounds good right? I didn't have any white wine but we did have some red wine in the fridge. Well apparently when you mix red wine and cream cheese together to make a sauce it makes a nice purple color not associated with most food.

I wasn't overly happy with the way it looked but my husband didn't say a thing. If you could get past the color it was actually very good. In fact it made an encore. I actually made it on purpose the second time. And it was great. It's one of those meals that you just close your eyes and eat it. After our meat free lent it might make a come back. If it does I'll have to post pictures of it.

What kind of mishaps have you had in the kitchen?

  1. Too funny...I did the EXACT same thing once! Except I stuffed the chicken breast with celery and olives and peppers and onions, I think. It was really, really purple.
    I just stumbled on your blog from Allison's, and saw you follow Cam too...are you from CAF? That's how I "know" both of them.
    Coincidentally, I also live in a "Big City, TX" :)
