Doing A Little Kitchen Work

After my husband left for work this afternoon I decided to busy myself getting some kitchen work done. 

Today I made hot chocolate mix and 2 different Lipton rice mixes to use for side dishes.  One of the mixes I found here.  I made the Creamy Herb Rice.  The only thing I did differently is I added dried green peppers that I had picked up in Iowa at the Amish store, instead of the minced celery.

I grilled two chicken breast on my George Foreman grill and then added them to this Ramen noodle salad.  I did not buy the broccoli slaw.  Instead I made my own with my food processor.  Next time I think I will make my own Cole slaw mix also but otherwise I followed the rest of the recipe.  I am having this for dinner and then there will also be enough for several lunches.  By the way I am a follower of One Creative Housewife. It is a really good blog, you should check it out!

I am also getting the prep work done for homemade pizza for dinner tomorrow night.  I have grated a 2lb block of cheese.  I still need to dice some onion, green pepper and black olives.  But those really should not take long.

Not bad for a slow Sunday!
