“Imagination and faith are the secrets of creation.” Neville Goddard

We have some good news and some good news.  My kitchen once again has running water and a sink and a counter top.  That means I’ll once again be cooking fabulous food and sharing amazing recipes!  (See above quote)

Well, maybe fabulous and amazing could use a few qualifiers.  And maybe, once again, is a bit of a stretch.  But won’t it be fun to try new foods!  (Just trying to whip up a little enthusiasm with the crowd.)

My first recipe back in my functioning kitchen is Chicken with Tarragon-Mustard Sauce.  Can you say yummy!


Deli chicken

2 T olive oil

1T freeze-dried red onion

1/4 cup chicken broth

2 T sour cream

1T yellow mustard

2 t dried tarragon

1 t dried parsley

1 T arrowroot


Remove the breast meat from a deli chicken and cube it.  Set aside.

Place the oil and freeze dried onion in a jar and nuke it for about 30 seconds.  That’s enough to get it going.  Pour this into a small pan and stir in the remaining ingredients, except for the chicken and arrowroot.  Simmer for about 3 minutes until heated through.

Stir in the arrowroot to thicken.   This takes about a minute if you turn the heat up a notch.  Add the chicken and simmer for another minute.  Serve.  Goes good with a nice green veggie.  You might want to sprinkle a bit of dried or fresh parsley on top.

This dish is creamy and delicious.  The recipe I worked from started with raw chicken along with a onion that they took the time to mince.  But why!  Find ways to use the great convenience foods and save time for yourself.  What have you been promising yourself that you’re going to do as soon as you find the time?  The world is waiting for you!
