Week 45 Friday (11/21/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Cajun Chicken Pasta
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 365 calories per serving, if 10 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

This is such a colorful dish with the peppers!

         I love the spiciness of this dish. I did modify for recipe a little. I am still learning to love bell peppers so instead of cutting them into strip, I diced them up. I also had to omit the Roma tomatoes for health reasons. This is another low calorie dish that I really like for the week.

Melissa Rinker’s Pretzel Hugs
Another school recipe – thanks Melissa for sharing

Pretzel rings (knots)
Hugs candy
M & M’s

         Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with either wax paper or tin foil. Place a single layer of pretzels on the cookie sheet.  Center a Hug on each pretzel. Put cookie sheet in the oven on the center rack. TURN OVEN OFF (we want to soften the Hugs – not bake them).
         Remove from oven when the Hugs push into the center (about 2 minutes). Immediately push M & M’s into the center of each Hug. Let them cool so the Hug firms enough to take off cookie sheet.
