One of the biggest challenges for me is cooking something other than noodles; however, this meal was all about noodles! I guess I have not conquered that challenge yet!
Typically my cooking starts off with a recipe that I have found, then I improvise to the point it is nothing like the original! That would be how this meal came out.
Tonight, I made Chicken Noodles, very simple and for me that’s a start.
- 1 Bag of No Yolk Egg Noodles
- 1 Can of Cream of Chicken
- 1 Can of Chicken Broth
- 2 4.5oz Canned Chicken
- 1 Bag of Frozen Mixed Veggies
- A Dash of Garlic Powder
- A Dash of Basil
Note: I say a ‘dash’ this can be interpreted in many different ways, did I mention I never measure anything! This is ‘Mommy Hates Cooking‘, right?
I cooked the egg noodles as instructed on the package. Then, in a skillet I added all the remaining ingredients and let them boil. After draining the noodles, I mixed the skillet mixture with the noodles and viola dinner is served. This only took about 20 minutes to cook and would be great with a whole wheat roll.
For me, it was bland, which is why I added the garlic powder; however, there was something missing. It needed maybe some type of spice? Suggestions?
My husband’s thoughts? MORE NOODLES!? He told me he has been made fun of at work for the amount of noodle dishes he brings. So, although he enjoyed it, I have made a vow to him that my next meal will not include noodles.
That’s it and now on to the next cooking adventure!
