Yeah, it’s a slow news day. Sorry.

Garlic, chicken and potatoes. Cubed. In a pan. Baked.


  • 4 garlic pieces, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced and diced
  • 6 potatoes, peeled, cubed
  • 5 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 box of Pacific Cream of Chicken soup
  • 1 C hemp or coconut milk, whatever is on the shelf
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

Slice and dice and cube. Layer all the chunky stuff in a pan. Mix the soup and the milk and the seasonings and pour all of that over the top of the chunks and bits.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, covered and another 30 minutes, uncovered. This makes a total of one hour baking time if you are playing along with our home game.




Company Chicken

Yeah, well the company’s going to arrive soon. Not a lot of time to run to the store, and I don’t want to feed them frozen pizza. What to make? What to make? Well, in this case it was more of a question of: “What’s in the cupboard and sort of works together?”

Things to work with for inspiration…. a bowl of potatoes, some chicken breasts, package of chicken sausage and a box of soup. Hmmm.

Add some curry powder and an onion!!! That’s it! voila. Dinner.  Bonus: it smells really good while it’s baking.

Chicken Curry with Potatoes

  • 6 chicken sausages, sliced //Amylu Brand, andouille is what I used
  • 5 chicken breasts, cut into smaller portions
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 6 potatoes, sliced
  • 1 box of Pacific Brand cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 T Montreal steak seasoning
  • 2 tsp curry powder (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder

Layered in the above order, in a baking pan. Covered with foil and baked for 2 hours at 350. Baked another 45 minutes uncovered to brown the potatoes, and reduce the gravy a little bit.

Very yummy.



Giant Sweet Potatoes

Egads. The sweet potatoes are taking over the planet! These things are ginormous!

I am used to shopping at the generic grocery store and purchasing sweet potatoes that are usually the size of my hand. So, when I was placing my order with the co-op veggie people this week, I thought I would try some of their sweet potatoes.

This is what I got:

One potato, two potato...

Note: those are quarters in the picture next to the potatoes.

Cubed and boiled up in the largest stockpot I have. So, in the end it was 8 cups of mashed sweet potato ready to eat, or use in a recipe. Yummy.


Princess Potatoes

We are hosting a princess party tomorrow, and while there are cupcakes and tiaras involved…. real food will be needed as well.  If there are any leftovers, they are GREAT as leftovers. Reheats nicely as a side dish and is super comfort food. mmmm

These go nicely with the menu for tomorrow. And the way I make them, they are gluten free. Because I can, and because I have to.  So there.

Princess Potatoes

  • 1 box of Pacific Brand Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 1 – 8 oz.  carton of sour cream
  • 1/2- 3/4  C coconut milk depends on how soupy you want your sauce to be!
  • 1/2 C red onion -chopped or minced to your liking… or use green onions, or white or yellow.  Go crazy and use all four kinds mixed up together if you want to.
  • 3 cups of shredded cheese (we used monterey jack-colby)
