Potluck Chicken Tetrazzini

Posted on

Warning:  Your non-vegetable-loving husband (or significant other, or kid if you chose that route) may eat asparagus willingly when you tuck it in with noodles  and chicken with a creamy base and then top it with sourdough bread.

This recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens circa May 2007.  It was well worth the wait.

You know I love some color.  I refrained from using the picture of the pile of asparagus and the three whole peppers.

The recipe actually called for red and/or yellow peppers, but I had to go crazy and throw in the orange.   Life on the wild side, you know.

Chicken a la king, anyone?

Best thing about this concoction:  282 calories per serving.

In other news:  One of the many reasons I consider my charmed life charmed is my ability to travel.  Maybe you’ve noticed I’ve been sitting still for a while.  Well, the biggest obstacle has been because in the last few months we’ve been turning our backyard into an oasis.  And when I say we, I mean paying a landscape company.

Way back in January this was it:

After a lot of steps, including tree removal, this is it:

I planted the garden patch myself, though.

And on the back deck I have all of my herbs.  Don’t worry, I replaced that one white pot in the middle.  I also have four big pots of strawberries that I haven’t taken a picture of yet.  As of today I am waging war on the squirrels, but that’s a story for another day.

In case you’re wondering, the white picket fence is to keep out the bunnies.  I’m afraid there may be some blood shed by the end of the summer.

Even though I haven’t gotten on a plane in six months or more I have been quite busy being Farmer Jane.   As my wise friend Marnie said, it isn’t easy working the land.

Eat Well and Savor.
