WIAW #12, Wednesday Walkabout #3

Happy WIAW and Walkabout Wednesday!!

This week on What I Ate Wednesday, I am going to feature my Sunday and Tuesday dinners.  Why you ask?  Because Sunday is featuring a favorite crockpot meal in our house and Tuesday represents my favorite dinner in the winter.

Thanks as always to Jenn for such a great link up!

Disclaimer: I realize I am not like everyone else who links up to WIAW!  I am not a vegan, major healthy eater, or big workout person.  I am who I am, and I like who I am.  So please forgive me if you don't see a lot of healthy stuff on my blog.  I try, but am still happy with who I am!  :) 

Sunday dinner: (A Pinterest Find)

Crockpot Chicken and Rice


2-4 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese 

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 pkg. italian dressing seasoning (the dried kind in the packet)

2 tsp. of pepper (an addition my husband and I love to this meal)

rice (I used minute rice)

Stir the cream cheese, cream of chicken, and seasoning together in the crock-pot   Put the frozen chicken in and cover with the mix. cook on high 4-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked and fall-apart-tender.  The chicken will get very tender and shred in the crock-pot just from you stirring it every so often.  Once the meal is fully cooked, make your rice.  Place rice on a place and scoop delicious chicken mixture on top of it.  Eat and be in heaven!  :)  

I have had this meal as a left over also.  It heats up really well and I think tastes just as good as the day you made it. 

 As you can see, I made some crossaints to go with the meal and some peas (GREEN) for me to eat!

Tuesday dinner: 

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

In Saint Louis, we had an unexpected snow come through the area.  About an 1" fell.  Not a lot, I know but when you don't know snow is coming, it catches you and all of St. Louis off guard!  I wanted something "warm" for dinner.  Tomato soup was CALLING MY NAME!

Tips on a very delicious grilled cheese and tomato soup:

-Use french or sesame seed bread from a bakery (grocery store bakery)
-Use milk in your soup instead of water
-Mix the soup and milk together with a whisk or hand mixer or even a food processor
-You want the soup to be "frothy" Mmmmm, soooo good!
-Dip your grilled cheese in the soup!  :)
-Enjoy the warmness you will receive from the meal

Love grilled cheese and soup! I never have the right ingredients at school, but it was a classic when I was a kid :)
