I've been busy!

Confession....I have not been to the grocery since before Thanksgiving. What can I say? I've been busy! It seems like my life is going non-stop!

So today I was going to go to the grocery, but it is soooo cold outside. I just didn't feel like going out. So I headed into the fridge and pantry to see what I could come up with for dinner...

I managed to whip up the following from things in the cupboard and freezer!

Chicken & Noodles
3 small frozen chicken breasts
1/2 bag of small egg noodles
1 carton + 1 can of chicken broth
2 TBS corn starch
salt & pepper
I cooked the frozen chicken breast in the chicken broth for about 30 min, and shredded with a fork. Next I cooked the noodles in the broth w/ the chicken for 10 min. I added the corn starch to about 1/4 cup water and then added the mixture to the broth to thicken. Season w/ salt and pepper.
I served the chicken & noodles over Trader Joe's Instant Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and brussel sprouts on the side. It hit the spot!

mmm...I love chicken & noodles. Both of my grandma's used to make this often and I've never been able to make it quite the same. I've never used corn starch, so maybe that's what I am missing. Yours looks excellent!

Hey Crista! I got your shower gift, thank you so much! That was so sweet of you! I love the bib, maybe she'll even get to watch some IU basketball this season if they can get their act together and win a few games!
