Today we have our Travel League, last but one. This time in New Hamburg. I am not sure if I am up to bowling yet awhile. I am probably going along for lunch at least and will see when I get there. Haven’t bowled for the last two of our bowling sessions, in fact I didn’t even go although Matt did.
Last night I watched The Legend of the Guardians:The Owls of Ga’hoole. I loved it, great movie and the owls themselves are extremely realistic especially in some of the flying scenes. Our artistic sinlaw is particularly fond of owls so he really should see it if he hasn’t done so already. There are a lot of Australian accents in the movie – don’t know who is doing the voices. It is not all sweetness and light either, not sure if it has an age rating.
That’s it for today, gotta go get ready.
Here’s a recipe from Kraft especially for people with diabetes. A different take on Chicken Cacciatore.
Chicken Cacciatore with Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Makes 4 servings.
What You Need
3/4 lb. red potatoes (about 2), cut into 1-inch chunks
1-1/2 cups small fresh cauliflower florets
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
1/2 cup KRAFT Light Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
1 pkg. (8 oz.) sliced fresh mushrooms
1 each green and yellow pepper, chopped
1 can (14.5 oz.) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup (1/2 of 8-oz. tub) PHILADELPHIA Chive & Onion 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
COOK potatoes and cauliflower in boiling water in large saucepan 20 min. or until tender.
MEANWHILE, cook chicken in large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat 3 to 4 min. on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to plate; cover to keep warm.
ADD dressing, mushrooms and peppers to skillet; cook and stir 6 min. Add tomatoes; simmer 8 min. Return chicken to skillet; spoon sauce over chicken. Simmer 3 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF).
DRAIN potato mixture; return to pan. Add reduced-fat cream cheese; mash until potato mixture is fluffy. Serve topped with chicken, vegetables and basil.
Kraft Kitchens Tips
Substitute Italian parsley for the basil.
Have a great day
