Last night's dinner

I had alot of inquiries wondering what I made for dinner last night, that my son stayed home a little longer for... LOL!!

It wasn't the recipe that did it, really.... it was one of the simplest meals I've ever made.... I'm almost embarrassed to say how simple it was, one of those 'throw together' dinners, you know... LOL!!

I had some cubed chicken leftover from something else I'd made the day before, it was already seasoned and cooked, so it was easy to toss into a pot of elbow macaroni soup, which I started by saute'ing onion & garlic with the macaroni in olive oil, and later adding tomato sauce (I actually used V-8 juice instead of tomatoe sauce, because it's what I had, it works the same, and it has even MORE vitamins!) and water. Then I threw in the chicken, brought it all to a boil, then lowered it to simmer.

Very simple, but it was just nice to feel so appreciated, you know.... I think ANYTHING on the stove at that moment would have been perfect. = )



  1. Olfactory senses are a powerful motivator :o)

  2. Sounds sort of minestroney-ish. Yum!

  3. It does sound very good. Thanks for sharing. I think sometimes those kind of things are the best anyway

  4. Sometimes the meals thrown together are the best meals. :-)

    I'm glad you enjoyed the time with your son.


  5. sounds delicious! my husband does a lot of things like that too; just finds what we have and becomes creative like that and usually they come out tasting good

    most importantly, it kept your son home for a bit!

    we got tons of rain, did you?


  6. There~you've got a recipe to post on Food Friday. Sounds good. Linda in WA

  7. Mommas cookin' is always the best!

  8. Those are the best meals, a bit of this and a bit of that and mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....
    Have a great day!! :)

  9. Ok, you had me until you mentioned tomato juice, lol. Sounds warm and inviting though!

  10. That's sounds delicious...and easy. How cool is that?


  11. The smells from a home cooked meal. The ingredient you forgot to mention is 'a mother's love'... That can make all the difference in the world as to why he stayed around for a while.


  12. It sounds like reason enough for me to stay home and eat too!
