It’s fairly common knowledge that I don’t read as much as I should, or as much as I’d like to. Which I guess is why it took me so long to finish Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul. It’s a feel-good book, most definitely. It helps you to see the best in people and the best in the world around you. I love reading other people’s stories and found myself inspired by the tales in the book. I hope one day that I have a story that I can share, like the ones in this book!
I never managed to do a new recipe in week 10, so instead I did two in week 11 to catch up!
The first was a chicken stir fry with egg noodles in a black bean sauce. It’s so easy because everything gets thrown into the same pan! The result was really delicious, definitely one to try again! second recipe was a bacon and broccoli salad with pine nuts and cranberries. Again, it was really easy to make, and super quick! I think I could take or leave the cranberries, but it’d make a great dish for a warm Summer’s evening…if we ever get one!
It was a fairly quiet week for me this week, so there wasn’t an awful lot to include in my Project Life.
You’ll see my recipe from the week, which was Philly Lemon Chicken Pasta:I also included a picture of the Lord Of The Rings jigsaw puzzle that Sam and I completed – one of our cheap date ideas:I couldn’t resist dedicating a page to the legalisation of same sex marriage. It makes me so happy that people are campaigning for equal rights and that our Country has recognised the importance of this bill.A quiet week, but one with good news!

I opted for another dinner recipe this week, choosing this Philly Lemon Chicken Pasta recipe from the Philadelphia website.
I decided to use broccoli as well as green beans because I do love my veg and wanted to include some more to bulk out the portions a bit.
One of the best things about this recipe is how versatile it is – Mum doesn’t like pasta, but I was able to serve her up a portion of chicken in the creamy Philadelphia sauce with some potatoes instead. Plus, all of the pasta and veg gets cooked in the same pan so that’s a big bonus for ease!
The general consensus was very positive with the whole family agreeing that it was delicious – definitely one to store in the recipe file!
