The Gray Husband scarf is done!:)

It's done, and he is happy with it!

I read on a knitting blog somewhere (which one escapes me, I apologize) that the person noted that it was neat that you could refer to something as 'gray' or 'grey' depending on how you felt at that moment. I think this scarf is gray with a grey stripe! Good evening to all!:)

Chunky Chicken Vegetable Soup

Right off the back of a Good Season Italian seasoning packet box - this is a hearty and wonderful soup that I made following this recipe - you could do this!

Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 20 minutes Makes: 5 (1-cup) servings

1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1tsp. oil

1 can chicken broth (14-1/2 oz.)

1-1/2 cups water

2 cups assorted cut-up vegetables (such as sliced carrots, broccoli florets and chopped red pepper)

1 envelope GOOD SEASONINGS Italian Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix

1/2 cup MINUTE White Rice, uncooked

2 Tbsp. chopped parsley

COOK and stir chicken in hot oil in large saucepan until browned.

ADD broth, water, vegetables and salad dressing mix. Bring to boil.

Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer 5 minutes.

STIR in rice and parsley; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes.

Great substitute: Substitute 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen mixed vegetables, thawed, for cut-up fresh vegetables.


Comfort foods & an apple a day...

When it gets cold outside, I like my comfort food which the number one has got to be real, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. Peel those potatoes, cut them up in cubes, boil em, strain em, put the butter (I use a vegetable-good-for-you margarine) and (skim) milk in there, mash em up and voila - yuuuu-um!!!

I have been using a packet mixed with water to make my chicken gravy and that has been yummy on top. Mmmm-mmm!!!

Potatoe peeler and potatoes

Peeled and cubed potatoes Yum!


Along with those mashed potatoes, why not coat some chicken legs in an egg wash, load the bread crumbs on and throw them on the barbeque? We don't think it's too late to barbeque in the winter (propane tank) and by Gosh, it was yummy.

Chicken drumsticks (inexpensive at the warehouse store)

Apple and Laughing Cow Cheese (Tiny in Weight Watcher's points! Halleluah!!)

I discovered 'Laughing Cow' off television but my Mother told me where to find in our local grocery store. Imagine my delight to find that one little wedge (and they are pretty small) is only 1 point in Weight Watcher's land. Not to mention eating an apple is a goood thing, also quite loow in points, and in the middle you'll notice Carr's crackers (a foo foo cracker that I found out about while on ANOther diet:). I recently read that eating an apple a day really can be just the thing for most of us, it even has a special anti-oxidant called a riboflavinoid, which I may have spelled incorrectly, found in the skin of the apple that is Oh-So-Good for you!
Have a great evening!
