Well last night i was feeling a bit under the weather and so Jez decided to mkae some dinner. Well i asked him what he was thinking cuz we have no food in our house. This strike shit from work is hitting us now. But anyways he said he would figure it out. So i let him.

Well about an hour later he told me to come eat. Well he found cabbage and chicken and went to work. Well he made an awesome soup for me to eat while i was sick.


1/2 cabbage head
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4-5 cups of water
3-4 tsp of chicken boulion
1 tsp onion powder

He boiled the cabbage till soft. Mean while cooking the chicken in cubes. Then put the chicken in with the cabbage and added all the rest of the ingredients.

I cut up a reb bell pepper and put some in my soup and it was tasty and he put some hot sauce in his and loved it.

He called it his homemade chicken cabbage soup, kinda like chicken noodle soup but chicken cabbage soup.

Soy Marinated Chicken

Soy Marinated Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 orange
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 lb asparagus
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 Cut chicken breasts diagonally and place in a single layer in the bottom of an oven-proof dish.
2 Pour in soy sauce. Squeeze the juice from half the orange onto the chicken. Cut the other half of the orange into wedges and arrange on top of the chicken.
3 Cover and marinate for several hours.
4 Preheat the oven to 350°F When oven is heated, remove cover from chicken, flip chicken, and bake 20 minutes (uncovered). Flip again and bake another 15 minutes.
5 Meanwhile, trim woody ends from asparagus. Heat a little oil or butter in a heavy skillet. Saute the asparagus, adding the white pepper and lemon juice a little at a time to glaze the asparagus. Cook until desired texture is reached. This will probably not take more than 10 minutes.
6 Serve chicken and orange wedges on top of asparagus.

Homemade Spaghetti sauce with meatballs

Well we finally ran out healthy food to eat and dont have money right now to go to the store so we are eating what we have in the house. Which since we just barely switched over to eating healthy we have remnants of unhealthy food still in the pantry. So i decided to make our ever loving spaghetti sauce that we all love.
1 onion, diced
3 cans spaghetti sauce
2 cans diced spaghetti(we usually use my grandmas canned tomatoes but we ran out and don't live close by her so we have to deal with store bought now)
2-3 tablespoons garlic salt
2-3 tablespoons oregano
1 teaspoon basil leaves
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Throw the onion in a pot and saute it for about 5 minutes and then add everything else and let it come to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer it. Stir it every now and then.
Since we just used what was in the house, we had a bag of meatballs int eh freezer that needed to be eaten so i threw those in with the sauce and let them cook fro about 20 min(as recommended on the package).
Boiled up some noodles and threw it all together.
Well i had my brother over fro diner since he is home alone and doesn't have mommy to cook fro him. Since the rest of my family went to Mexico this week for spring break. But the bag of meatballs didn't have to many in it and well my 19 yr old brother ate all the meatballs out of the sauce.
Well we had tons of sauce left over and i just put it in the fridge for the next night. And i cut up some chicken and threw it int he sauce and warmed it up on the stove top and made some penne noodles and we had chicken in it the next night.
Sorry no picture for that one, i totally spaced it. We have some leftover from that ill take some pics today at lunch and post it. LOL
