Ms. Bear's Kitchen: A hearty winter meal

Melissa told me it's time for another recipe for her new series! I decided to make some comfort food for a very cold day here in Illinois. I was able to make all of this in under an hour, so if you need a quick meal one weeknight or for unexpected company, this is pretty easy! Here we go...

Chicken Noodle Soup

*1 package of Bear Creek Chicken Noodle Soup mix (or any other brand that makes 8 cups)
*1 can Del Monte green beans
*1 grocery store rotisserie chicken
*Make the soup mix according to the directions. Add the green beans and as much or as little chicken as you wish.

That's it....heat it for awhile and serve with bread or muffins, along with some fruit.

All Bran Muffin (These are super easy and quick. I eat one for breakfast every day in the car on the way to work. They are pretty healthy and filling too!)

*1 1/4 cup flour (I use 1 cup wheat flour and 1/4 cup white flour)
*1/2 cup sugar
*1 T baking powder
*1/4 t salt
*2 cup Kelloggs All Bran Cereal (original)
*1 1/4 cup milk
*1 egg 1/4 C vegetable oil
*Raisins, walnuts or dried cranberries, if you want
*Mix the All Bran and the milk...let it sit for a minute when you assemble the dry ingredients. Add the oil and egg to the All Bran mixture and stir. Add raisins and walnuts if you want. Bake at 400 degrees for around 20 minutes, but check after 15 minutes.

Blueberry Muffins

*For these, you can use a standard muffin recipe, but this time I just used the boxed mix and added fresh blueberries. I topped them with a confectioners sugar glaze, just for fun!

Fruit Compote
*2 cans mandarin oranges
*1 large can sliced peaches
*Blackberries or blueberries -- optional
*1 can pineapple -- optional
*Mix together, refrigerate for a bit and enjoy!
 There you have it. A whole dinner -- pretty nutritious and really easy! Enjoy!!!!
