The girls are back in Georgia for the holidays. That leaves me Tessa and Miley home alone for about 17 days. I will have to focus on eating healthy foods since I too often eat quick, easy one-player foods when I am home alone.
Prior to leaving, Ashley had been asking me to make a chick-un noodle soup. She had been craving the salty, simple, comforting food for awhile. The day before they left, I dove in. I nailed the chick-un with my own seitan recipe and a very slow roast with some broth and corn starch. Then the soup was simple, a few veggies, noodles, and I tossed my chick-un in just prior to serving to they were nice and firm.
It came out perfect. Kaleigh really enjoyed it. She said it was her favorite kind of chick-un noodle soup, chunky, veggies, and not slimy. Ashley thought it was really good as well.
Sadly, as usual, I made too much and have been eating it alone for days. I am about over it. Fortunately, it is just about gone and I will be able to move on to other foods. At least I have something other than veggie burgers on the menu while home alone!
