Week 34 Emeril Chicken Delmonico Caesar Salad and Caramelized Onion and Bacon Mushrooms

I liked the chicken it was like 1 big chicken nugget but had creole seasoning to give it a little kick depending on your level of heat. But I hated the mushroom sauce that went along with it the mushrooms gave of a poop smell which turned me off right away. The Caesar salad was good the dressing needed more Parmesan it was a little to acidic and earthy but that's cause we had half the amount of cheese in it so I now why I didn't taste as good. Lastly the bacon mushrooms were delicious they were earthy sweet and Bacon!!! Loved it.

Wow, What a difference a week makes. We went from an all time high to an all time low. This meal did not go too well. We had trouble with the recipe's. We had trouble with the ingredients. I know I was not on my A game.

The mushrooms turned out to not work too well. We took mushrooms that were dried and tried to wet them and then use them in the sauce. It didn't work. Carl thought they smelled like poop.

I did enjoy making the artichokes. That was fun to eat the meat of the leaves.

The chicken turned out to be ok. It was one of those things that was not too flavorful, but it wasn't terrible. It had and egg batter and then corn flakes on the outside. Lastly, we tried some Caesar salad, but we didn't buy enough of the Parmesan cheese. That didn't have enough flavor. I did learn that Caesar salad has anchovies in the dressing. Who would of thought.
