This morning I was craving some sort of egg casserole. I had to get creative since we didn’t have much to go with it. The only meat we had was the Applegate Farms pepperoni, so I made it a pizza theme.
Pizza Egg Bake
3 Applegate Farms pepperonis, chopped
2 wedges Laughing Cow cheese
1/2 c. egg beaters
1/3 c. Heart Smart Bisquick
Whisk all ingredients together and pour into small greased casserole dish. Bake on 375* F for 25 minutes or until cooked through.
Yum yum yum!
For dinner, I wanted something quick and easy. I got an email from MyLifetime.com about the recipe section of their website called Cook Yourself Thin, and browsed through their recipes until I found something that I wouldn’t have to go to the grocery store for. I came up with tortilla soup.
Tortilla Soup (with my modifications)
1 pound chicken tenders, cut into strips
1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 can chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup water (I used 1 1/2 c. water and added chicken bouillon)
1 teaspoon salt (I left this out)
1 teaspoon ancho chile powder, or your favorite chile powder
I sautéed the chicken breast in a pan, then added it to the pan with the rest of the ingredients and brought to a boil, then let it simmer for about 5 minutes before serving. I also sprinkled in some minced garlic (yes, I really love garlic!).
I was a little worried the flavor wouldn’t be that great since it was such a simple recipe, but I really liked it. Since I added more liquid, it could have used some more tomatoes, but I don’t think we had any more.

I’ve been spending lots of time lately making Christmas presents. I’ll have to show you some of what I’ve done tomorrow night. Are any of you making Christmas presents this year? What are you making?
