Ziploc Omlette?

Just saw this ... another one that I am posting here to try out later on ....

A fun one for those with Kiddies!

* Have kids write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.
* Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.
* Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, onion, mushrooms, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.
* Each kid adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shakes it. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
* Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelettes in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.
* Open the bags and the omelette will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.

Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup

I had no clue as to what to do for dinner last night, so I did a "this looks like it might be a good combo" deal and made my own Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup.

Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup (serves 4-6)
1 can corn kernels (salt reduced)
1 can creamed corn
1 brown onion, diced
1 spring onion, sliced - into rings
2 OXO chicken stock cubes
2 Chicken Breasts
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce

1. Dice brown onion and fry off until translucent. Then take off the heat.
2. Cut chicken lengthways (horizontal) then vertically across the breast so that ou end up with thin stips of chicken.
3. Put onions back on heat and add chicken to seal.
4. Add creamed corn and corn kernels to saucepan.
5. Boil kettle. Add a crumbled stock cube into each remaining can of corn. top up the can with boiled water and stir - ensuring stock cube is dissolved. Then add stock to saucepan.
6. Add in soy sauce and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile slice spring onions.
7. Taste. Add more soy if required, or salt and pepper to taste. Add in spring onions.

Bircher Muesli

I have been on the hunt for a good version of Bircher Muesli for Diabetics ... Bah Bow.
So, I have made my own (photo to follow when I CBA)

Bircher Muesli
100g rolled oats
15g flax (linseed) seeds
15g almonds (flakes/slivered)
10g raisins
1 wedge of lemon, juiced
1 small apple, grated (Granny Smith)
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/2 small tub of low fat natural yogurt

The night before you plan to breakfast, soak the oats, flax seeds, almonds and raisins in just enough water (or Skim Milk) to cover.
In the morning, mix the above with the lemon juice, apple and cinnamon. Then mix through yogurt.
