Other flop was......... I baked my whole chicken for hours. It was aromatic and juicy when I dug in it with my fork, ready to eat some of it with my salad for lunch. Tangled in my fork, came out a plastic thing..........containing neck and gizzard etc.. UGH! I hate it when that happens. Because of how plastics release carcinogens, I am sorry to say that this chicken (de-boned) became a treat for my cats and dogs. May I be wiser with my raw chicken next time, and check the inside!!!
Ready for some kitchen successes now!
This is one of those, "Hm, what can I make for us......?" meals out of what I find.
*one can of Northern beans
*one can Rotel (seasoned) tomatoes
*2/3 package of cream cheese
*about two cups crumbled, cooked (pulled from the freezer) ground hamburger meat
* 1/8 cup of CUMIN seasoning
*one pound of dried split peas (cost under $2)
cooked on low in couple quarts of water, stirring occasionally.
*Then I added chopped onion and a package of already prepared "match-stick" cut carrots, and a splash of olive oil.
This yumminess will feed me for lunch for a week. To see other examples of how my daughter eat at lunch during the school year, go here to see my post about just that!
