Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Chicken with Lemony Egg Noodles and Peas (On the Run? Swim!)

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on May 26, 2009 ][ In Chicken & Other Poultry, Pasta ]

The last couple of weeks have been hectic around here. The end of school always is for those of us with school age children. I haven’t had time to write and (here’s a confession) not much time to exercise. For the most part I have eaten well balanced meals and not totally fallen off the wagon of good health. Though I know people think my husband and I always eat healthy and exercise consistently, it’s just not possible to be that perfect. Your good health should be at the top of your priorities but don’t give up and allow yourself to fail because a week went by without going to the gym or you pigged out at the Memorial Day barbeque.

What are the Tedders looking forward to next month? Swimming! Summer is almost here and pools are opening up. Swimming is possibly the best exercise there is. My husband’s 82 year old mother still swims 5 days a week in the summer. It has kept her fit and contributed to her good health and energy. My husband loves to swim and my daughter is on the local swim team. I plan to swim laps this summer to battle the winter holiday bulge. Why should kids have all the fun? Jump in and join the fun.

Here’s a new recipe for after that swim that goes together in no time. My whole family loved it.
Chicken with Lemony Egg Noodles and Peas
8 oz. egg noodles
4 oz. sugar snap peas
1 c. frozen green peas
1 c. shredded carrots
1 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. heavy cream (I used 2% milk)
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
salt & pepper to taste
2 c. leftover chicken (I keep Tyson’s frozen roasted chicken chunks on hand)

Cook noodles as usual but add sugar snap peas the noodles for last minute of cooking. Place carrots and frozen peas in a colander in sink. Drain noodles and sugar snap peas over carrots and peas.
While noodles are draining, heat broth, cream, lemon peel in same sauce pan to boiling. Add chicken and noodle mixture into sauce. Heat through, stirring constantly.

Add a fruit salad or some bread & you are done.
