My aunt came into town and helped me rearrange my pantry. Once I knew what was in my pantry, it was easy to decide what to make for dinner.
I had some Pasta Roni’s Butter and Garlic noodles, sundried tomatoes, black olives, chickpeas, and canned chicken in the pantry. What could I make for dinner?
I cooked up one box of the butter and garlic noodles and added the drained chicken to the noodles.
Once I cooked up the other box of the noodles, I placed half of it in the other bowl. With the other half, I added sundried tomatoes, black olives, and drained chickpeas. YUM! It sort of reminded me of my favorite dish at Piada.
I decided to Google a writing prompt for today because I was coming up blank on what I should write. I found a website called Massive Sway that had writing prompts for each day in October. So I’m using today’s writing prompt.
What do you like to do on a dark and stormy day?
Last night as soon as the Wee One had soon left for his acrobatic lesson with his grandma, the dog decided he was going to jump on me. He was breathing on me and shaking like crazy. Why was he doing that? It was getting ready to storm.
I was working on progress reports at that time so I finished working on them. Then I took a bath and just relaxed.
The rest of the night was stormy. It made for good sleeping weather. However I kept getting interrupted by the dog walking into my room, jumping onto my bed (something he’s not suppose to do), walking around my head, and then jumping off the bed. He did that a few times before finally settling down for the night.
It continued raining throughout today while the temperature was dropping. I wish I wasn’t at work because it would be a good day to just relax, read a book, and cook some cookies or brownies. On a rainy day, it’s nice to make soup in the slow cooker.
In fact, I had made taco soup last night. We had more of the soup for dinner tonight.
Welcome to Day 15 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking. We are at the halfway point of the 31 days of slow cooking.
The Imaginative One is working towards his cooking merit badge. He’s done the camping portion of the merit badge. Now it’s time for him to create a menu and then cook it for us. We are having baked pancakes made with pancake mix rather than from scratch. He’s putting together sandwiches for our lunch. For supper, we are having chicken nuggets and French fries. They didn’t say it had to be healthy.
I’m still helping him with the cooking because there are some basics he doesn’t know.
My family loves fried chicken especially Kentucky Fried Chicken. It’s not healthy to eat KFC though. So when I found this recipe back in February, I was super excited. It’s a little bit healthier because you bake the chicken instead of frying it in oil. Continue reading “Oven “Fried” Chicken (Gluten Free Option)”
