Romen Noodle Cabbage Salad Monday, Nov 12 2012 

This is one of my husband’s favourite salad. It’s pretty, a bit fancy, and easy to make! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย When making this, add the dressing and noodles just before serving. As it sits, the noodles become soft. It’s best when crunchy, but leftovers never go to waste around here! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Romen Noodle Cabbage Salad

1 bag cabbage mix (I make my own: approximately 6 cups of chopped green and purple cabbage, and carrots)
2 bunches of green onions
1/2 cup slivered almonds (toasted 7-8 min. at 375F)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 packages chicken Roman Noodles*, broken into small pieces
3/4 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
2 packages seasoning mix from noodles*

Toss first four ingredients together.

Mix oil, sugar, vinegar and seasoning packages together, pour over the first 4 ingredients and mix well.

 

*I stay away from MSG, which is included in roman noodle packages. So I use other plain minute noodles available in grocery stores, and use a Tbsp MSG-free chicken bouillon instead of the seasoning mix.

Chicken Noodle Soup Wednesday, Oct 12 2011 

This recipe is from a friend of mine. It’s not written super precisely, because soups is just meant to be tossed together, right? Only Grandma’s make soups perfectly because of their years of experience. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย It’s a delicious soup, and if you want to learn to make it from scratch, here is the recipe for you! I often make this when we feel a bit sick. Nothing better than made-from-scratch chicken noodle soup!

Chicken Noodle Soup

Either:

1. Simmer one whole chicken, or chicken parts, in a 6-quart pot for 1-2 hours, with spices. Or,
2. Simmer bones, skin, etc from leftover roast chicken, in a 6-quart pot for 1-2 hours, with spices.

Add spices to simmering chicken:
1 cut up onion
2 Tbsp parsley
3 large bay leaves
1 tsp pepper
2-3 Tbsp salt

Once it’s done simmering, pour soup into another pot using a colander to catch all bones. Put broth and spices back into your soup-pot and any meat you want in it.

Add:
2-3 cups grated carrots
1-2 cups peas
1-2 cups noodles

Simmer for 15 minutes until noodles are cooked. Tastes great with fresh bread or biscuits on the side!
