Tonight was a rare night on the farm. My 8 year old daughter and I were home...Alone! No boys to be seen! This just NEVER happens!
I wanted it to be a special evening, so I told her we could do "anything she wanted." Guess what she wanted to do? She wanted to cook dinner for the two of us...all by herself.
Hmmmm. I figured we would be dining on ice cream and cookies.
Instead, she emerged from the pantry carrying two cans of Chef Boyardee Beefaroni.
Well that was easy! I thought to myself.
But the Little-Foreman-in-Pink IS my daughter, and she informed me that she wanted to cook "like Mommy" and turn one thing into something else!
I was stumped, so I did what I always do and went to my trusty internet for inspiration. I found the Chef Boyardee web site, and guess what?? They actually have chef-created recipes using their products! (http://www.chefboyardee.com/recipes)
Some looked more interesting than others, but they all got our minds going, and we were determined to come up with our own creation using our Chef Boyardee Beefaroni.
We decided to make a Beefaroni Pot Pie! Yep, I said it! A Chef Boyardee Beefaroni Pot Pie! This is how we did it...
