Snow days

17 02 2008

Although this past week in Northern Virginia did bring school delays and some closures due to freezing rain; life here will never compare to the winter wonderland of Northern Maine.  The following are photos from the snow fall this past week in Presque Isle, Maine.

You Never Know. . .

It seems the days of the week are passing by me and I have yet to get to the grocery store.  Not knowing what dinner I would put on the table this evening as I walked out the door this morning, I was racking my brain on my way home.  Hmm, spaghetti, nope no spaghetti sauce, stroganoff. . . yeah that might work!  Got home and no sour cream, argh!  What’s a woman to do? 

Improvise!  Pull out the recipe book, look at three separate recipes and try to concoct a mess out of all three substituting what you don’t have for something in a different recipe.  Well here is what I came up with:

Bethany’s Cheesy Cream of Chicken and Spinach over noodles! =)

  • cut up 2 chicken breasts and brown in frying pan
  • pour 1 can cream of chicken into sauce pan
  • add 3/4 cup milk
  • add 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • stir this all together until melted
  • add 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • remember that you have spinach in the frig and decide that it would probably be good mixed in with everything else.  Chop it up and stir into mixture
  • add cooked chicken and stir together
  • serve over whole wheat Rotini noodles
