Default Chocolate Pudding

I like the chocolate pudding with a dash of cayenne pepper. I know it sounds weird, but it tastes great and I don't make it any other way now

One other thing that I do, is mix up the entire box of packets at the same time, using a large bowl and a hand mixer. Each serving fits perfectly into a Ziploc 1 cup storage container. They turn out so creamy and easily stack 3 or 4 high in the fridge, so they're ready to grab and go.

Pinky:

Chocolate puddings are my favorite, too, and that's a great idea with the mixer. I put a little bit of salt in them, and then add the chocolate WF syrup. Delish!

I liked Jordanna's Chai Tea idea, but I like mine on ice so I used...

2 cups water to one Bigelow Chai Tea bag (I left the tea bag steep for a few so that the tea was nice and strong).
Pour 1 cup tea over ice, add 1/2 of a Vanilla To go Drink and stir.

I get to have two nice, cold Chai teas drinks this way. It was so yummy, I couldn't believe it.

Default Honey Mustard Chicken

8 chicken breasts
1 cup WF Honey Dijon dressing
2 tbl Dijon mustard
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1-1/2 c chicken stock

Make very small slits down the length of each breast (helps the sauce penetrate). Season the chicken breasts with poultry seasoning on both sides and brown them (don't overcook, it will continue to cook in the sauce). Combine all the other ingredients in a bowl while chicken cooks.

Once the chicken is browned, lower the heat and pour the sauce over it. Simmer 20 minutes (low simmer). After 20 minutes remove the chicken, whisk up the sauce to smooth it. Serve chicken hot with a spoonful of sauce.

**I adapted this recipe from one I found on the web and made it with 4 breasts because I like more sauce. I didn't know if I could have chicken stock so I made it without. It came out a little dry but tasted pretty good! Next time I'm going to add the chicken stock.

Default Cappuccino Tweak

My husband leaves at 4:30 am for work and enjoys the Cappuccino for breakfast. This is his preference:

Cappuccino Packet
6 oz cold water
Dash of Cinnamon
1 pkt of Splenda - Mocha Flavor Blend for Coffee
Shake in Shaker
1.5 - 2 oz hot water
1 tsp of Instant Folgers Decaf
Warm on Stove or Microwave to desired drinking temperature

*** I noted that adding the hot water (from coffee brewer) after pouring the mixture into a pan on the stove and then adding the instant coffee reduced the foam down to about a 1/4 inch on top

Mix Soup and veggies in the same saute pan to heat to desired temp
Put Spinach in bowl

Here's one of my favorites.

1 C steamed shredded cabbage
1 C packed spinach, chopped
1 t dehydrated onion
1 packed Raspberry jello

Make the Jello in the normal way and ad onion with the hot water

Steam the cabbage 3-4 minutes in microwave steamer; add the spinach the last minute. (This is not necessary if you don't have thyroid issues.)

Mix and let set.*

*Note to people who use microwave steaming bags: I bought a microwave steamer dirt cheap at a local drug store and have probably used it every day since -- for vegetables and fish. In the long run it is so much cheaper than the bags. Just a thought.

Well, I grew up in the Jello generation and jello salad with vegetables or fruit -- even tuna, ugh -- was VERY common. Often olives and other stuff was added, too. Hey, don't you listen to A Prairie Home Companion?

You should post this in the recipes thread... It sounds yummy!

hehehehe - this makes me laugh. I was at a wedding on Saturday night and they had jello salad with marshmallows, apples, celery and other odd stuff in it. Marshmallows & fruit I understand - celery I do not!

I get a fruit and jello salad but sorry spinach and cabbage are a little "out there" for me. I live on the Canadian shield, no prairies here.

Well, all I can say is "youse guys ain't adventuresome." A little Western Pennsylvania colloquial to spice up your life.

This my favorite. Make your vanilla pudding and sprinkle cinnamon on top. I love it!
