Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Creamy Wild Rice, Chicken, and Mushroom Soup w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

It’s been one sleepless and painful night and day. I have been suffering through some extremely painful Phantom Pains. It’s so frustrating because there is nothing you can do to stop them. There’s methods and medicine you can do or take that may work about 5% of the time but for the most part the only thing you can do is try to fight through them. I think I might have got about an hours worth of sleep overnight but that was it. I had nothing for Breakfast but a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad and I went back to bed for most of the Day. The Phantom Pains lessened around 2:00 this afternoon, finally. I’m hoping for a better night tonight! Thank goodness for leftovers, I reheated the Creamy Wild Rice, Chicken, and Mushroom Soup w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread. I’ve left the original post from yesterday below. Take care everyone.

 

I had purchased a bag of Bear Creek Creamy Wild Rice Soup Mix at Walmart a while back. So what better day to try it than a Fall day in November. The package contains the Soup Mix which is loaded with Long Grain Wild Rice. I’ll be adding 8 cups of Water, Pulled Chicken, and sliced Mushrooms. You can already tell this has the makings of one Hearty Comfort Food Soup!

 

 

 

For the Pulled Chicken; Yesterday I purchased a Kroger Simple Truth Rotisserie Whole Chicken. I pulled all the meat and put it in a sealable plastic container, which I put in the fridge to store until needed. I also purchased a small container of Mini Bella Mushrooms, from Meijer, that I sliced up.

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Soup; I brought 8 cups of water to a rolling boil. Whisked in Soup Mix. Reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sea Salt and Pepper to taste. When the Soup was ready I then added 1 cup of the Pulled Chicken and 1 cup of the sliced Mushrooms. Stirred until well blended, and served. One excellent Soup! The Soup came out smooth and creamy and the Long Grain Rice, Chicken, and Mushrooms worked perfect. Hearty and Delicious! I also baked a loaf La Brea Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin for Breakfast this morning. I topped with some Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam and served it with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sort of foggy out this morning. It was cloudy all day and a high of 64 degrees. So it was a god day to stay in and clean the house, vacuum and dusted. Also gave the wooden floor area a good cleaning. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Some of the trees this year in the neighborhood are beautiful! Orange, Yellow, Red, leaves and they look incredible as the sun is setting and hitting them just right. Had everything done by the afternoon and watched some College Football. For Dinner tonight a Comfort Food Dinner, Creamy Wild Rice, Chicken, and Mushroom Soup w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread.
