I decided to resurrect this blog with a new post. This summer I cooked some amazing and sometimes creative dishes. As of late, I felt my current dishes failed to measure up to my summer cuisine, so I chose not to post.

BUT... then I thought about my decision. Regardless of where my dishes fall on the fabulous meter, I decided to post them anyway.

So, on my other blog Ah Me So Hongry, I wrote about my participation in a lunch experiment. Here's the post:

Last week, a co-worker called me and proposed a novel idea. She suggested that myself, as well as 3 other teachers take turns bringing lunch for each other. So, in other words, I only worried about packing my lunch 2 days this week:

  • Monday: Salisbury Steak with Mashed Potatoes...7 points. I paired raw carrots with mine.
  • Tuesday: Chicken Tortilla Soup...4 points. I paired cucumbers with my portion.
  • Wednesday (my turn): My mom prepared Enchilasagna from Devin Alexander's cookbook The Most Decadent Diet Ever! 8 points for the entire portion, or 4 points for half. I devoured the entire portion. For my veggie serving I ate cucumbers.
  • Thursday: Taco Bake...not sure of the points, but I requested the recipe. I paired the taco bake with green beans.
  • Friday: Since only 4 of us agreed to this experiment, Friday we're on our own.

My only reservation about this lunch experiment...the lack of control. Although the ladies use Weight Watchers cookbooks to prepare the meals, I worry about the ingredients, specifically salt. Like I said this is an experiment, and we shall she what the results yield. But you must admit, it's a great idea with awesome benefits.

So, this week for my turn I decided to make Chicken Stroganoff in the crock pot....super simple.

Mix FF sour cream and 1 pack of Lipton onion soup mix together.

Throw some chicken breast and the sauce mixture in a crock pot and BAM...Chicken Stroganoff!

I regret to inform you that I forgot to take a picture of the finished bad. You can pair the chicken with either whole wheat pasta or brown rice. Bon Appetite!
