Lesson 7: Lessons Learned

I had this post all written up and ready to go many weeks ago; however I have been preoccupied with work, family, and all sorts of stuff that has kept me away from both posting anything and working through the next meal.

I hope to get back on track with the next meal quickly.

Here is my list of Lessons Learned from Menu 7:

1. Chicken is a family-friendly, budget conscious, and in for this menu, an excellent substitute for Guinea Hen.
2. Don't buy cheap pastry bags, they aren't worth the price.
3. When cooking puff pastry, use your own oven.
4. I should let my nephew do all of the technical work (pastry work) so that I don't mess it up.
5. Cooking in an unfamiliar kitchen wasn't as bad as I expected, the oven may be a different temperature, but I didn't have to clean up! (sometimes there are trade-offs that are worth it!)
6. Cook with family, it is a good thing!
7. Cook this main dish again for a family meal! I suggest you do the same!
