Good Morning Everyone! It’s Tuesday. It’s beyond freezing here in PA. I put on my winter coat, scarf and gloves today! It was that cold! I had to scrape frost off my windshield this morning. It was so cold!! These are the morning when I love that I have heated seats. It makes my hour-long drive so much more tolerable in the cold weather. I am loving this weather though. I’d much rather have it be cold than all of that humid weather that we had to deal with this summer.
I am still not feeling myself yet. I woke up feeling really nauseous again. My stomach is feeling strange. I just think I have a bug or something. I keep walking around feeling nauseous. I can eat but I still end up feeling that way. It’s making me feel really unpleasant. I couldn’t take off another day from work. I have so much work to do and I’m going to need to come in this weekend. I just wish I would stop feeling this way! I don’t know what to do. If this feeling went away, I would be fine. I hope and pray it just goes away. I’m trying to take it easy with what I am eating. So hopefully that will help.
Yesterday, I just relaxed the entire day, trying to get myself to feel better. I watched tv and I made an attempt to go outside to get some fresh air to take a walk. I ended up walking for 10 minutes but it was too cold and I wasn’t feeling all that great to be out there any longer. At least I got some fresh air.
For dinner, I made a Campbell’s classic recipe, Chicken and Rice Bake.
Chicken and Rice Bake
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
1 cup water
3/4 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
Stir the soup, water, rice, paprika, and black pepper in a bowl. Place enough of the mixture to coat the bottom of a baking dish reserving the rest to coat the top of the chicken.
Place the four chicken breasts on top of the rice and soup mixture. Sprinkle some additional paprika and pepper on the chicken breasts.
Then pour the rest of the rice and soup mixture to coat the top of the chicken breasts.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender.
This dinner was great! The original recipe does not say to split the soup and rice mixture. They tell you to just put it on the bottom and put the chicken on top. However, I’ve found that it tastes MUCH better when the rice and soup mixture is on top and bottom of the chicken. It adds so much flavor. This is a classic recipe that turns out great every time. So if you are looking for something simple and delicious to make, this is the your recipe.
After dinner, Mike and I watched Dancing with the Stars and 90210 and called it a night and went to bed.
Here I am this morning. I just ate plain hot oatmeal, and I brought along a banana and I am drinking pumpkin coffee.
Ugh. I hope I can make it through this day. I am just going to try to take it easy and focus on my work and maybe that will make me feel better.
Well have a good morning and I’ll be back later.
