Wow! I am really loving how this day has started!
Being the night owl that I am I rarely see 7 a.m. If I do, it is usually because I have something I have to do.
But today is different.
I am up because I want to be up. Yee haw!!
It feels great to sit here in the quiet solitude one can only find in the awakening of a new day.
I have my favorite quiet time music on, we have had our smoothie and now I am savoring my one cup of coffee.
I am glad to report, that I have not had a headache since Sunday.
Do you ever get migraines?
I would not wish one of those on my worst enemy, if I had a worst enemy.
Anyway, I had two last week and the only commonality I could find between the two incidents is PEANUTS!
Oh no! I love home roasted peanuts!
But, if I must give them up, I will.
The only other culprit I can think of is hormones.
Ok, enough of that!
I made this delicious dinner the other day.
I mean it was really delicious.
My nephews wife has made something like this for us before, but I never knew exactly what she used. I'm still not sure this is what she uses, but it is close enough to the flavor of hers for me.
I was kind of afraid to eat it, thinking my migraines might be food related and all, but I gave it a go and all was well.
So, I put three of these Tyson pre cooked chicken breasts in the oven for about 18 minutes:
Now let me just say, normally, I try to avoid pre-cooked products, but this one has no preservatives and it gives this great smoky flavor to the dish, kinda like a Carino's dish. I also like that they are all just about a good portion size. No humongous sized ones. Well, not in this bag, anyway. It was my first time using them.
As that was warming up, I sauteed some mushrooms. I dont know if you would really call it sauteing, because I did not use any oil or butter. I guess you could say, I grilled them.
I love the flavor they get when they get a little toasted.
These Buitoni raw noodles only take 3-4 minutes to cook and they are delicious. So, I threw them in the boiling water when the chicken timer rang. That gave me time to chop the chicken up into bite size pieces.
Then I drained my noodles, added the chicken, mushrooms and this alfredo sauce:
Oh my gosh! It was so tasty and it fed me, Ronnie and my mom. Next time I will put green peas in it.
I would say, it cost about $3 per serving. I wont give you the calorie count, haha. Naw, it really wasn't that high. I just don't remember what it was.
So, there it is.
Oh, one last thing. . . I am not receiving any type of compensation from these fine brands for this post.
I am sure most of you already have a recipe like this in your rotation, but I just thought this was so quick, easy and delicious and I wanted to share.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
