My Concoctions

I like some weird food combos sometimes. To me, actually, I don't think they are weird. But my family sometimes does.

Take this morning, for instance. I was eating a small bowl of cooked oatmeal with a little peanut butter, some chocolate chips, and a few grape nuts thrown in for good crunch. I LOVE IT. It's fairly healthy (hey - the choc chips don't count for much) and yummy.

I also like a tortilla with peanut butter lathered on it, some cut up bananas, and choc chips - rolled up.

The girls have taken to liking my vanilla yogurt with chocolate chips.

Do you see a theme with my chocolate chips? HA HA - Sometimes you just need that little bit of something sweet in the morning.

I love to mix my own soups together. I love Progresso Light Chicken Noodle. I will throw in some rice, some beans (usually garbanzo but sometimes black beans), some cooked chicken (I usually throw leftover in the freezer so have some shredded ready to go) and occasionally some corn. It's sooo good. If I need more broth I throw in another can of chicken broth. Sometimes if I have leftover spaghetti, I'll even throw some leftover spaghetti noodles into the mix or a little chopped onion. It makes a good amount so I'l throw the extra into tupperware and freeze for yummy lunches.

I love potato chips and salsa. Not tortilla chips and salsa (which I also like) but POTATO CHIPS and salsa. I think it's something about the salt. But I haven't had this in a long time. Trying to stay away from that fattening addiction. But it's reallly good.

I'm sure there's more. I don't know what it is - but something in the last year or so has gotten me adding things together like this.

Others may think I'm weird - but it works for me! :)
