Chicken/Turkey and Dressing


Bake your chicken in an oven bag and add a couple of stalks of celery, green onions and season to taste. In addition, add a 1/2 cup of water so that you will have broth for your dressing.
If desired, bake your chicken the way in normally do.

Sometimes I use an oven bag when I’m not cooking a turkey or large dinner.

Tomato Basil Soup

There’s nothing like Tomato Basil Soup. 





I wasn’t sure how the soup would come out since I didn’t have fresh tomatoes on hand; however, it was fantastic.

Now I’m convinced that I can enjoy one of my favorite soups anytime of the year.  In an effort to cut back on my spending, I’m trying to use what I have.  In doing so, the results have been very rewarding.
