Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Boiled Mini Carrots and Whole Grain Bread
Busy day today running errands and fially getting around to cleaning the car. Anyway for dinner tonight I went with the Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken ‘n’Noodles Fixins’. It comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Seasoning, I added the Chicken. I cut up 2 Chicken Breasts seasoning them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Ground Smoked Cumin, and Parsley. I then fried them in a large skillet until done and added the can of Fixins’. Cooked until it the Sauce was bubbling and heated throughout. The broth that’s with Noodles is incredible! Rich and thick and seasoned just right. I left the info and web site link to Margaret Holmes at the end of the post. I had sides of Mini Carrots and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later I picked up some Mini Ice Cream Cones. Keebler Cones 15 calories and 8 carbs per cone. I’ll be making Blue Bunny Chocolate/Vanilla Swirl Frozen Yogurt cones tonight!

Today’s Menu: Baked Copper River Salmon w/ Edamame, Sliced Carrots, and Whole Grain Bread
I had a beautiful Copper River Salmon Fillet for dinner tonight! I thought I was out of the Copper River Fillets but found this in freezer the other day. I rubbed the fillet with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I baked it at 400 degrees for 11 minutes. Perfect, love that Salmon!
For sides I had sliced Carrots, that I boiled, Pictsweet Edamame w/ Sea Salt, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread . That’s the first time I had tried the Edamame and it might be the last. It was bland and just not to tasty . For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with Cool Whip Free.

Coconut macaroons are very easy to make. They have only four ingredients, mix up easily, and require only 15 minutes to cook. The only trick, especially when not using sugar (which attracts moisture), is keeping them from being too dry. Here’s how I do it.
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
4 egg whites from large eggs (should be about ½ cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sugar substitute (I like liquid forms of Splenda, with zero carbs)
about 2 Tablespoons water
1) Heat oven to 375 F. Line baking sheet with either parchment paper on a silicone mat.
2) Measure egg whites. If they aren’t quite ½ cup, add a little water to reach that level. Then add the vanilla, liquid sweetener if using, and water so that sweetener and water together equal 2 Tablespoons.
3) If using powdered sweetener, mix in with unsweetened coconut.
4) Mix dry and wet ingredients together. The mixture should just hold together. Let set a minute or two and you’ll be able to mold them better.
5) Roll into balls a little bigger than an inch in diameter. Slightly flatten and put on baking sheet (whatever shape you put them in is how they will stay, so this is your chance). Put at least half an inch apart.
6) Turn down the oven to 325 F, and bake for about 15 minutes, but start checking them a couple of minutes before. You want them golden brown on the bottom, and just barely starting to brown on top (though if you like them a little crispier, bake a couple of minutes longer).
Makes about 14 cookies, but yield will vary based on size of the cookies.
