    French onion soup. I caramelized the onions in the slow cooker. Takes a while, but super easy, and delicious. Low calorie without the French bread and cheese on top the rest of the family had.
    Great for the winter storm we are in the midst of this weekend.

    The last thing I cooked (as in not from frozen or cans!) was a batch of turkey chili yesterday. I use Jenny-O extra lean ground turkey, fresh yellow corn, red sweet peppers, organic no-salt crushed tomatoes, sweet Vidalia onions, fresh garlic cloves, olive oil, oregano, basil, and parsley. I store it in my fridge fresh, and it's good for about three days.

    No added salt or pepper, so people can just season to taste. This has become my go-to, super easy food for convenience, great nutrition, low-fat, low-cal, no salt favorite food this winter. Awesome!

    Do you know how hard it was to only eat 1/2 of one of those steaks and trimming all the fat? :#

    WOW! That steak looks perfectly cooked. Nice job and yes, great self-control. LOL :wink:

    I prepped two freezer meals to support the hubby who is the weekday cook but struggles with that. This was two portions of coca cola chicken cooling before putting in the freezer.

    Brown some chicken pieces in a casserole and set aside. No oil necessary if you are using skin on chicken. Sautee an onion in the same pan and then add minced garlic and fry until fragrant. Toss in 500 ml of regular (not sugar free) coke and 100 ml soy sauce and braise the chicken about 20-25 minutes until done. You can add carrots or any root vegetable or squash that doesn't overcook easily. Put chicken into your freezer containers and turn up the heat to boil the cooking liquid furiously until the sauce turns into a caramelized syruppy mass. Spoon over the chicken. When you warm it up, serve with rice and an asian cucumber salad, or an asian slaw.

    I made chicken soup for lunch, and my husband and I made chicken Marengo for dinner. I am not really new to MFP but I am wanting this time to be different. I tried to put my recipes in and was extremely frustrated! I find it very tricky after the third time putting in the recipe for chicken Marengo I gave up. any suggestions? also as I have been on and off MFP for years, this is my longest streak and I am also new to seeking support which so if you read this and feel inclined please add me to friend.

    I find it much easier to add recipes using the app on my phone rather than using my laptop. I find it much more user friendly.

    For lunch I made radicchio-ricotta ravioli (boughten not hand made) with a sauce of grated zucchini, radicchio chopped fine, EVOO, a touch of garlic, a touch of pepper, broth crystals--all simmered a couple of minutes in a saucepan, then tossed with the ravioli and freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano on top. This turned out great, and it was so colorful--purple and green. If you can't find radicchio ravioli, substitute cheese ravioli.

    Tonight I'm making 7 grain bread grilled cheese, eggs over easy, and spinach that's already wilted tossed in a frying pan with butter and salt.

    Poppers for game snacks today. Huge jalapeno peppers at the grocery today. Filled with a mixture of cream cheese and smoked salmon. They're tasty, but the salmon is not really noticeable. What do you use for fillings in poppers? 138mkcdw3z3y.jpg

    Chicken salad on sourdough bread for dinner tonight. Leftover chicken breasts, celery, an apple and some toasted slivered almonds. Dressed with mayonnaise, stone ground mustard, horseradish and lime juice. My favorite way to use leftover chicken!
