No Time to Cook Chicken
I am not sure what exactly what I was expecting with an entirely canned soup base, but this was inedible. Imagine dipping chicken strips into a can of condensed soup, and that is what this tasted like. We ended up ordering take out. A total waste of money and the time that DID go into preparation. My husband, who will eat almost anything, wouldn't even touch it. I'm sorry but you may want to pass on this one. BTW, after reading other reviews, if you have to entirely modify the recipe, you aren't really rating it based on the recipe's own merits. As written this dish was horrible.

Tomato Bisque II
I have made this several times and it is really, REALLY good. I have played around with it using half-and-half sometimes and cream others. I prefer using cream, because I like it creamy. I would definitely recommend using at least whole milk, and not going below that. Otherwise, it would be too watery, and not at all like a true Bisque. Also, I use canned tomatoes. Two 28 cans work perfectly. Last night I used crushed tomatoes, because it was what I had, and the boyfriend loved the bits of tomato, but I have also used tomato sauce, and I think I prefer the smoothness of it. Either way, it is a fantastic recipe, and fun to play with. It seems to come out great however you manipulate the ingredients!

BBQ Steak Teriyaki
Best steak I have ever made! BTW -- I did deviate a bit from the written instructions. I used 2 good sized ribeye steaks. (it's what I had.) Also, I didn't have the sesame oil, so I used Canola. Also, my oranges were being sorta lame, and didn't want to zest, so I used what zest I could get, and used some of the juice (maybe a few tablespoons) for good measure. One tip if you live near a Safeway or Vons grocery store, their store brand Teriyaki (in the asian foods section - I think it is called safeway select) worked beautifully in this. And the bottle was only 1.79 for 10 ounces. Very affordable! Also, I didn't have a grill, so I just pan fried, if you call it that, with a bit of the marinade. Oh, and I marinated it in a ziploc for about 3 hours. It was seriously fantastic!!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
