Cream of Chicken and Veggie Soup and Cornbread Muffins
In slow cooker add:
1 can mixed veggies (tomatoes were included in this can)
1 can cream of chicken soup
Leftover baked chicken, amount up to you
Water, amount up to you
Cook on slow until thoroughly heated and can be left on longer, of course which is one of the good things about using a slow cooker. I just make sure I have enough water to assure it can be left for amount of time I think it will be before mealtime.
I made regular cornbread batch. Instead of making a pone of bread, I placed in muffin pans. I baked this in toaster oven on 350 for about 25 minutes. I baked on lower rack and moved to top rack to brown for just the last few minutes.
Easy, healthy (to me), and delicious.

If any of my posts inspire someone that may not like to cook the long, drawn out way or just don’t feel like cooking due to health problems, etc. then I am glad I helped.
Thank you for reading my blog and feel free to share.
My Food Diary August 2012
For a change, quick breakfast of cheese toast, egg, and sliced fruit.
Whole wheat bread with grated cheese, toasted in a toaster oven. Egg done on top of stove in a very small amount of butter. Added a few slices of fresh fruit that I had on hand.
My Food Diary July 2012 Apricot/Apple Cobbler with Topping
I baked this cobbler in toaster oven. Even though the toaster oven heats up the kitchen less than a regular oven—it still takes too long to do this very often during hot weather. Delicious, though! LOL
Whew! Getting Started With My Blog!
I’ve decided to do a diary of sorts of things I prepare and eat. I can look back and know about how healthy I really have been eating, or not. LOL
I will not provide recipes that are long and complicated. I have medical conditions that require that I eat healthy but not spend all day cooking a long, drawn out meal. I think senior citizens, the elderly (or whatever the preferred name for those over 50 is these days), people with health problems, or those who are single or a couple will be more interested in the simple, usually not beautiful, uncomplicated, but healthy things I put on here.
I live in Louisiana. It gets mighty hot down here in the summer. Heating up the kitchen and raising the temperature doesn’t work for me! So I use my appliances a LOT.
I like using the NuWave or Rapid Wave oven. I like being able to quickly put frozen stuff in there and it be done really fast, compared with conventional ovens. I also think it helps save energy since I’m not using a full, big oven and saving time since I’m not stirring and looking over things all day. I also use a toaster oven, slow cooker, rice cooker, and pop up toaster. I love my appliances. LOL They, are time savers and step savers to me. Just saying.
I’ve looked at a lot of things on Pinterest before I realized I could have a blog about it. So, I’m going to give it a try.
There are so many wonderful ideas, beautifully crafted items, and home decorating tips on Pinterest. Not to mention the vast number of recipes that are so tempting to try.
I may get the courage to post some of my results after trying some of the “how-to” instructions. That should be interesting. LOL
You may follow me on twitter @lilme2day . Look forward to “meeting” you on here and exchanging ideas.
