Recipe ~ Hit OR Miss?

I have decided to start sharing recipes when I come up with something in a hurry using our coupon inspired deals. I'll share the good, the bad and the here goes!

It all started with this bottled of Kraft "Teriyaki Sesame Ginger" BBQ was a few days out from expiring and I knew I needed to get it used up hunny was on his way home from work and it had been a very long day for me so nothing was in the works for dinner yet...I knew I had exactly 1 hour to figure out dinner.
I rummaged through the fridge and freezer and came up with this Asian inspired meal on the fly...

I grabbed a package of cooked beef brisket that had been in the freezer (prepared during a freezer beef session) and put it in the microwave to defrost.

Then I added it to a pan with garlic, onion, celery, carrots and some asian spices...once heated through I added the whole bottle of sauce and let it cook until really thick.
This part was: YUMMO!
I had a head of cabbage in the fridge, so I chopped it up and added some spices and let it cook down.
This part was: YUMMO!
I grabbed a bag of Green Giant Steamers "Asian Style Medley" and inserted into the microwave...
When I pulled the veggies out of the microwave I smelled a strong orange was then that I noticed the note on the bag stating that the veggies were in an orange asian sauce...the plan was to mix these with the cabbage and make a stir fry type veggie...I tasted them and was not pleased, it was a horrible tasting sauce, completely ruined the veggies. I plated them anyway, thinking maybe it was just me. Seriously...I could not get anyone to eat these...good thing they were free after coups because they wound up in the trash :-(
This part was: YUCK, double YUCK!!!
Lastly, I grabbed a bag of Lipton Asian Sides " teriyaki noodles" and served them along with the beef.
This part was: YUMMO!
I also knew that I had some vanilla pudding cups in the fridge that would be expiring the next in an effort to use them quickly I made some pudding parfaits...this one is peanut butter/vanilla
and this one is cookies and cream...I took some of the Back to Nature cookies that we had gotten on a great deal a few weeks ago and crushed them...both peanut butter and chocolate creme...then layered them between the vanilla pudding...
This part was: YUMMO!!!
Total cost of this meal was just under $4.00 and fed six people.
