Italian Chicken and seasoned vegetables

Image
I made this a few weeks ago, and it was a keeper at our place so I decided to make it for some of our meals this week. I thought it would only make 4 servings, but it made 5 1/3 servings.  instead.

Here is the recipe. I lost this recipe for awhile and found another one that seemed similar but not as tasty looking, so I was happy when I found it. Now I'll never lose it again and neither will you. :-) I added the sweet mini bell peppers to the dish because I got it confused with another recipe. :/ And I had a yellow onion to use up so I used it instead of a red one.








Underneath the chicken (3.5 ounces of cooked chicken to be exact) is white basmati rice. I had never cooked it before and found I really like it! No more plain generic rice for me!

I used-
2 pounds raw boneless skinless chicken breast
6.5 ounces fresh broccoli
8.3 ounces chopped mini bell peppers (cut into thirds)
20 sweet cherubs cherry tomatoes
3.4 ounces onions chopped
1 pound zucchini sliced

Chicken broccoli rice meal prep $3 each

This recipe cost approximately $3 each to make. It's served with a yummy yogurt sauce that is added after it's heated up.

Microwave bowls

So, I was at the kitchen store the other day and noticed that the fabric microwave bowls were getting low so I told the lady the makes them that I'd be happy to help her make more if she wanted me to.

She gave me the supplies and I sewed these up. I actually made 14 total. They are hard to take pictures of. But there are so many different styles of prints.



The pattern for these is super simple. I've never seen anything like it on the web. This easy, I mean. The quilt shop sells the pattern for $1. If you want me to send you one, let me know. It is printed on a single sheet of paper so it's just the cost of a stamp plus $1.

If you would like to me make you one, send me a message. We can discuss fabrics, quantity, and prices.

Meal prepping is fun!

Image
A few weeks ago hubby found me a YouTube channel that shares meal prepping recipes. We've tried two of their recipes so far and quite impressed! Meal prepping is such a great idea for when you come home from work exhausted and don't want to eat out. You just simply pop your ready made meal in the microwave and it's ready in a few minutes.

I've tried making pad Thai in the past, but I never cared for it, until tonight.

Here is where I found the recipe.

I am so glad I thought to ask my local kitchen store if they had any woks for sale. They had one left, on clearance. Normally it would have been $85 but I got it for $60. I love the wok! No more do I have the food falling out of the pan. There's so much space to cook it all in.






15 bean soup with cornbread

Image
I have fond memories of eating beans and cornbread with my Granny every week. The only thing is that she liked to use a ton of vegetable oil in it. When we lived with her, I had to hide the bottle so she didn't use too much.

Anyways, I decided to make a batch of 15 bean soup for supper tonight. I tried making some awhile back according to the directions but I found it tasted too watery.





First, I soaked the beans overnight. Then I rinsed the beans and drained them. Put them in my large oval crockpot and put just enough water to barely cover the beans. I put the lid on at 8 in the morning and set to low. Around noon, I checked on it and the beans had nearly cooked all the way. I opened up a can of diced tomatoes and added some dried onions and garlic powder.




 About 2 in the afternoon, I added a pound of diced cubed ham. It is simmering nicely while the cornbread bakes.




I have two favorite cornbread recipes that I use depending on my mood. I grew up on spicy cornbread. I wish I had m…

Farmhouse kitchen cloth

I found this pattern on ravelry. It reminds me of my knitted dish cloth with ridges pattern. It looks similar but is made differently.

Here is what I have so far.


This cloth is a set of six that I'm making for an order. I'll post up all six when I get the ends of the others weaved in. I'm trying to make six different cloths.
