Slow-Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup Meal-Prep Freezer Pack
Not only does this chicken noodle soup recipe utilize the crock pot for a set-it-and-forget-it easy dinner, you can also prep all the ingredients ahead of time and store them away in the freezer to pull out on a day where you forgot to plan dinner. That’s a meal-prep win! Just make sure you thaw the food before adding it to the slow cooker—otherwise it will remain at an unsafe temperature for too long……..

Ground Beef and Pasta Skillet
Sneak extra vegetables into your child’s day (and yours too!) with this easy one-skillet pasta recipe. Finely chop mushrooms to resemble the texture of ground beef and stir them into a classic meat sauce for an extra-healthy twist on a dinnertime favorite…….

Smoky Shrimp, Corn and Pea One-Pot Pasta
Make your sauce and pasta all at once with this fast weeknight pasta dinner recipe. By using the exact amount of water you need to cook the pasta—no colanders here—the starch that cooks off into your pasta water, which you usually drain away, stays in the pot, giving you delectably creamy results…….

Lemongrass Pork and Spaghetti Squash Noodle Bowl with Peanut Sauce
In this Asian-flavored spaghetti squash recipe, thin slices of lean pork tenderloin are marinated with lemongrass, ginger, brown sugar and soy sauce. The flavorful marinade is then cooked with peanut butter and coconut milk to make a delicious sauce for this low-carb noodle bowl…….

Today’s Menu: Reames Chicken and Dumplings and Sliced Carrots

 

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain bread, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had my Morning Cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom was gone most of the day so I stayed home to keep an eye on Dad. Did some house work and outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway area off. With everything done I kicked back and watched some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared Reames Chicken and Dumplings and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

Here’s another one I haven’t prepared in a long time, Reames Chicken and Dumplings. Why i can’t tell you, the Noodle/Dumplings are fantastic to use! While at Meijer I seen a package of these in the Frozen Foods and grabbed a package. To prepare the dish I’ll need; 2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 3 Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless, Skinless chicken breasts (cut into 3/4″ chunks), 1 quart (32oz) Swanson Low Sodium Chicken Broth, 1 tablespoon Parsley flakes, 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper, and 1 bag (12oz) Reames Frozen Flat Dumplings.

 

 

I’m using Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts. I love using these. Their individually wrapped, perfect size, and cook up perfectly. To prepare it; In a large pot, heat oil, add Chicken and cook until chicken is slightly browned.

 

 

 

 

Add Broth, Parsley and Pepper, Bring mixture to a boil. Add Reames Frozen Flat Dumplings, stirring to separate, return to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 25 min. Stir occasionally to prevent dumpling from sticking. Or until dumplings are desired tenderness. All done, and serve! I’ve got to remember to have these more often! They always turn out so good. Easy to prepare and an excellent Noodle. They go perfect with Chicken.

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan , bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. For Dessert later a Jello Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

CHICKEN PAD THAI
Peanuts are a low glycemic index food. Their slow digestion causes sugar to gradually be released into the blood, which can have positive effects on blood sugar control.

Substituting plant-based proteins like peanuts for animal proteins and low-quality carbohydrates can reduce diabetes risk by up to 21-percent.

This recipe is also a good source of Vitamin A (109%), Vitamin C (47%), iron (10%) and calcium (7%).

1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/4 cup water
1 medium zucchini, spiralized (about 1 cup)
2 medium carrots, spiralized (about 1 cup)
1 cup cooked pad thai stir-fry noodles
1 cup bean sprouts
1 cup thinly sliced cabbage
1 lime, quartered
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts, crushed
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Directions

1 – Season chicken with pepper, to taste. In large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil and cook chicken until fully cooked and juices are clear.
2 – Remove chicken from pan and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing.
3 – To make sauce: In small bowl, whisk together honey, chili garlic sauce, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, peanut butter and water.
