A New Year

Well it is a new year and with that comes our "poor" time.  My husband doesn't work much in the winter because his job is mostly seasonal (not the winter season) so we are in what we call our "poor" time.  We will be fine though because we have stocked up on food and have plenty of it.  We will eat from our food storage and buy fresh produce and milk.  Then when he starts working again we will stock back up.  It is a great exercise in learning what we do eat and what we don't eat.  It is also great for food rotation. (obviously).

Here are a few recipes that we will be using this month:

Chicken Casserole
1 can cream of chicken or cream of anything really
1 cup of milk
1 cup of water
1 cup of rice
1 can of chicken
1 can of peas and carrots drained

Mix all together and pour in a casserole dish.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Salt and pepper at the table to taste.

Leftover Chicken Noodle Soup
take any left overs you have of chicken and cut in to small chunks
Any left overs of veggies (drained)
Chicken stock (use water and chicken boullion if you don't have stock)
Sauteed onions and celery and carrots if you have them

Combine together in a pot and bring to a boil.  Put in left over rice or break up pasta (any kind) and let cook until pasta is soft and serve.  While cooking you can season it with salt or pepper or any spices you think would be good.  This is a leftover soup so really anything goes.

Mac and Cheese

You can use a box mix if you have one and then add two slices of American cheese and let melt in with the finished product.  You can add left over ham to this also and make it a meal.

Ham and Eggs

We love breakfast stuff for dinner and have Ham slices and either scrambled eggs or fried eggs every once in a while.

Hope these help!! :)  Hey do me a favor and if you like what you are reading you don't need to leave a comment but click one of the buttons and tell me if you are liking these posts.  Are they interesting? Cool?
