made this for dinner tonight, and it was seriously yummy...

Easy Chicken with Almonds for the Crockpot


* 4 to 6 chicken breast halves, washed, skin removed
* 1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream of chicken soup
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 1/3 cup mayonnaise
* 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
* 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
* 1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds

Arrange chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. In a bowl combine soup, lemon juice, mayonnaise, celery, onions, and almonds; pour over chicken breasts. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2.5 hours, until chicken is tender (boneless chicken breast halves will take less time than bone-in). Remove chicken breasts to a serving plate and spoon juices over them. Top with a sprinkling of almonds, if desired.

I served it with some broccoli and buttered penne, but rice would work very well, too.

So the wifelet decided she had a craving for cake tonight.

Alas, we had no cake mixes in the house.

So I say to my wifelet, "You know, I *could* make a cake from scratch, if we have the right ingredients."

So I had her grab me my Joy of Cooking, did some hunting, and had her check if we had certain things...

And now a golden cake is finishing in the oven, and there is a bowl of chocolate silk frosting waiting to go on it.

Rawr, I am Betty Crocker!

Go me.

I have been in more of a cooking mode again, which is good, cuz it saves money and all that...

Thursday it was chicken/broccoli/mushroom spaghetti with cayenne pepper. Easy and very yum.

Yesterday during the day I made Lee some key lime cookies. I generally hate all things key lime, but these were minimal on the lime, so I actually like them okay. Basically they're slightly lime-y sugar cookies. Good thing I like them, because the recipe made like 45 cookies and it would have taken her forever to eat them on her own.

Last night we were watching Chopped at midnight. I hadn't had any meat that day, so I got in the mood to try to play chef and made some food from some proteins in the freezer. No recipes, off the cuff, whatever sounded good. The offerings:

1) Pork medallions pan seared in a broth/sauce consisting of white wine, flour, butter, and mint.

Verdict: Incredibly yummy, and took all of five minutes to cook.

2) Orange roughy filet with a top glaze of a sauce made from butter, a bit of wine, flour, paprika, oregano, and fresh garlic.

Verdict: Not bad. Sauce probably needed less flour and some other seasonings added.

3) "Mystery fish." So I guess it was a fishtery. The label on the plastic was worn away (we do a food service deep freeze in bulk for our meats, so sometimes stuff is in there a long time before we eat it), so I have absolutely no idea what it was. All I did with this one was put a pomegranate balsamic vinegar on it.

Verdict: Nasty. Not a problem with the seasoning, a problem with the fish itself. I think it had been in there a bit *too* long, and was rather freezer-burned.

Oh well, two out of three isn't bad.

Tonight I am making Indian cabbage soup at 10:30 p.m. Why do I cook so late? I dunno. I've made this recipe before, though, and it's delicious, so no guess work here, and it will be my lunch for most of this work week.
supremegoddessofall: (i did something dumb)
1) I hereby declare that any recipe that calls for a squash to be "peeled and diced" shall have no calories for the peeler and dicer, regardless of supposed calorie content. Took me an hour - that shit is work.

2) Anybody else watching Mercy have the same thought I did about the most recent episode? That being "Dude, you better be *glad* you didn't sleep with Dawn, because Buffy *totally* would have kicked your ass."

That is all.

Today's menu selection:

*Pepper marinated teres major beef

*Tuna and thyme risotto

*Handmade curry okra (you don't even want to know how many spices go into this)

There are brownies and key lime squares for dessert.

Why yes, I am awesome. And yes, if you were local, you could come to dinner.

I lied...

We made more food. Desserts today. A banana cream pie (not in the crock pot) and creme brulee (yes, in the crock pot!).

Last night's experiment with pork tenderloin and the crockpot went fairly well. Pork, peas, mushrooms, rice, garlic, and pepper. I didn't know that white rice and the cooker are bad juju, so that part turned out kind of mushy, although still edible. Overall, very good.

Today I made chili. If I do say so myself, I make some kickass chili. Kidney beans, beef, stewed tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and a bunch of garlic powder, Indian chili powder, and cumin. Very yummy and very spicy. Perhaps a bit liquidy, but I actually prefer my chili that way. Definitely clears out your sinuses.

Then, I was rereading OSC's Homecoming series earlier, and they referenced a hot pudding. So my brain got stuck on the idea of a rice pudding. Checked, and I actually had all the ingredients (no raisins, but those are kind of optional anyway), so I currently have a rice pudding cooking on the stove. I think I'm going to fold some bananas in when it's cool and turn it into a banana rice pudding.


In the next couple days I also plan on making an Indian curry chicken using the crockpot and some venison stew. We shall have food for about 2 weeks. Yay!

So we ordered a crockpot off of Amazon the other day, since we were already buying a deep fryer to replace the one that committed suicide the other week.

And today I am using it for the first time to make some pork tenderloin and veggies. Man does it smell good.

*drool* Not ready yet though.

During one of Amazon's daily sales a few weeks ago (thanks, [livejournal.com profile] yendi!), I bought a waffle iron and a sandwich maker.

So today we used the sandwich maker for the first time.

Made panini-type things with turkey, muenster cheese, fresh basil, and tomatos. They were *so* good.

Also made omelets with mushrooms, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese. Now, historically, we have *sucked* at making omelets. But these worked perfectly. Apparently you're supposed to add a bit of baking powder to the eggs. They came out so light and fluffy, and were UBER delicious. Baking powder....who knew?

Also cooked up some cabbage, but not with the sandwich maker. ;)

There is currently a man cooking breakfast in my kitchen.

Now *that* hasn't happened in a long time...

We have Bambi in our freezer.

I feel all clean and stuff. Had a lovely bath with a bath bomb and some lavender oil and shaved. Yay for shaving.

Currently watching The Fog, which so far is fairly cheesy and not particularly scary.

Someone on my friends' list mentioned earlier that they were making deviled eggs. That sounds really good - I think I'll see if I have the ingredients for that and maybe make some myself.

If I do say so myself, I made a KICKASS dinner last night - lightly spiced rice, cabbage soup, and shrimp curry.

I am made of awesome.

This is why I hate my metabolism. Total calorie consumption for the day.

1 Bojangle's Dirty Rice = 166
1 Bojangle's Cajun Filet Sandwich = 337
~12 oz. of sweet tea = 120

1 peach fruit cup = 80 (which includes the syrup, which I don't drink - I'm thinking more like 50 is in what I eat).
1 Michelina's Fettucine Alfredo dinner = 310

Total calorie count for the day = 1013

This is not at all an abnormal food consumption for me for a day.

And what do I weigh?


This is also why I don't normally count calories. Too depressing, too pointless.

I hate skinny people. I hate even more the people who think all of us who aren't size 8 or smaller do nothing but pig out all day. Tell me on what planet 1000 calories a day is pigging out. And tell me that it's fair that I weigh what I do when my typical calorie count for the day is between 800 and 1500.

i rock...

I just made us a 6 course breakfast: curried potatoes, stewed peppers, bacon, hot Italian sausage, bananas, and honey bread.

I rock.

I am hungry and horny. I am not sure what I want to eat first.... ;)
