Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

Noodles n Chicken Baby Carrots 003
Had plenty of rain overnight, but no big storms as they predicted. After the rains passed through it took the high humidity and high temps with it. As our day went on the temperature kept dropping to about 71 degrees, love that! Dad finally got to come home today, about time! He’s doing a lot better, he’ll still have to take therapy here at the house for a while. But it beats staying at those rehab centers. For dinner tonight I prepared Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 
I used Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n Noodles Fixins’. Another of my favorite Comfort Foods! I used to buy this at Walmart all the time but they no longer make it, lack of sales they say. So now I purchase it on-line from different sites, last of their stock. Anyway it comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Seasoning, I added the Chicken. I cut up 2 Perdue Perfect Portions 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 also had of side of Boiled Sliced Carrots leftover that I warmed up and a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, that I buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then for dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Mac & cheese can be a true comfort on a gloomy day, and our healthy update takes advantage of extra-sharp Cheddar balanced with creamy low-fat cottage cheese and tucks a layer of spinach into the middle, which may help picky eaters down their vegetables.

8 Tricks for the Best Healthy Chili

Who doesn’t love Chili! Here’s some tips on making it healthier from the Eating Well Web site. I left the link at the bottom of the post.

Eating Well

 

Learn how to make chili even tastier with our tricks for the best chili.
Chili is the ultimate cold-weather comfort food. More than simply delicious, healthy chili is an easy one-pot meal made with ingredients you already have on hand, and can easily be stretched to feed a crowd on football Sundays or after a long day of raking or shoveling. Use these simple tricks to make chili healthy but still hearty and satisfying.

 

Chili Trick #1: Season Boldly
Using generous amounts of spice in your chili is a great way to add great flavor without any added fat or calories. Classic chili spices include chili and cumin (and cayenne for those who like it really hot). Have fun experimenting with different seasonings; cinnamon and allspice can add wonderful depth of flavor, like in our Pork & Plantain Chili…..

 
Chili Trick #2: Choose Lean Protein
To make a classic beef chili that’s still healthy, choose beef that is at least 90%-lean, which fits into the USDA guidelines for lean meats. Or opt for lean and flavorful ground turkey breast instead….

Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Cut Green Beans and Whole Grain Bread

 

chicken-n-noodles-002
Another very cool morning and beautiful Fall Day out again. Stopped by Jungle Jim’s Market with my parents, picked up some produce and Ocean Perch. Love that store, there’s always something going on in the store and today they cooking breakfast dishes with Ostrich Eggs! Amazing how huge those Eggs are, big enough to feed 5 people on 1 Egg (if not more). For dinner tonight I prepared Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Cut Green Beans and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

 

I used Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n Noodles Fixins’. Another of my favorite Comfort Foods! It comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Fixings, 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, removed and sliced into small pieces. Then added the Chicken back to the pan along with the can of Noodles and 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 also heated up a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans and a couple of slices of buttered Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
