Yesterday I had to cook for a meeting at work. I do this about every ten weeks. I think it's kinda fun to use the people I work with as guinea pigs. Mostly I like to bake... sometimes it works out, sometimes not so much. But about every ten weeks I'm up for cooking too. I've done a few of these, sometimes it's just hard to come up with the idea of what to do. This week was one of those times, so I got on good ole www.marthastewart.com.
So this meal was the winner. I was nervous about it because I didn't know how adventurous my co-workers would really want to be on a Wednesday afternoon but I thought it looked good - and something that hadn't been done a bunch before.
Personally I actually really liked this - all of it. It was fairly simple to prepare, although I'm not so confident in the whole frying stuff realm, and I didn't feel like I had the right tools (kept pulling off the breading w/ my tongs). I'm not usually a pasta salad fan either, but I actually liked that one, I'm not sure why. I don't think it was all a big hit overall though. I think it was a little far out for some who probably would have rather had a sandwich or something. I still appreciate you though Martha - and John appreciated the leftovers!
