Started my chicken noodle soup for the gliders for tonight. Now the house smells wonderful and the gliders will be so happy tonight!

I cheat and use either chicken breast or the meat from a rotisserie chicken and simmer for several hours with celery, carrots, mushroom and maybe a few other veggies. Then I add whatever veggies I have in the house and spaghetti (broken up into small pieces) about 30 minutes before serving. I let it cool and serve with fruit.

Here is a post from previously:

My dinners never look as pretty as Davies. But, here is the chicken noodle soup I made for my guys a few days ago:

Chicken, celery, carrots, red bell pepper, corn, peas, snap peas in pod, butternut squash, broccoli, mushroom, green beans, and spaghetti noodles.
They LOVED it!

I had corn on the cob tonight for dinner, so I decided to cut a chunk off and give it to my gliders. They're going to town on it even as we speak.

Tonight was my late night at work, so I prepared for the gliders dinner last night. Tonight they are having

Staple mix (VGV)
sunshine slaw, shelled English peas, cucumber, green pepper, bok choy, celery, corn, french green beans and a smoothie made from apple, strawberry, pineapple, mango, peach, blueberry and banana.
A few sunflower seeds as a treat ( my mother says it is mean not to offer dessert)

Look at this yummy goodness I made for the gliders tonight!

I boiled some chicken breast and then shredded it. Threw in a few chopped tomatoes, some red bell pepper and mushrooms and then simmered for about 6 hours. I then added some more water and carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, zuccini and Italian beans and brought to boil. Reduced heat and simmered for a bit. Then, again added a bit of water and added 1 cup of frozen mixed veggies, chopped collard greens and thin spaghetti broken into inch or so long pieces. I brought to a boil again and then reduced the heat and simmered till most of the water was gone.

I allowed it to cool and then served with cucumber, corn, green beans, carrot, jicama, bok choy, peas, apple, pear, grape, apricot and peach.


Not sure what I might call this, but the glider sounds of joy I am hearing make "Yummy Goodness" a pretty good name!

How did everyone eat this, Val? I know you said you had good sounds coming from the glider room - was it a hit?? I've tossed things together like this before but not nearly this intense! LOL Looks like you left some of the broth in there, as well. Yum!

My gliders have decided that scrambled eggs are only good if there are chopped tomatoes cooked into them.

They licked their bowls clean. Even my more picky gliders ate every bit.

Yes, I did leave some of the broth. They loved it!

Very neat! It looks fantastic - like something I'D like to eat LOL. I'm always telling others how they should be creative and have fun with dinner. My guys get a fantastic variety of food so I'll never feel bad for what they get, but I definitely could take the time to do something like this to change things up a bit. It's a great idea. Thank you. :)

Last weekend, grandma fed the gliders while Jeff & I were out of town and she admitted to overfeeding a bit - particularly if she saw that a dish was missing a certain fruit or veggie and she'd add it. I think the babies are disappointed that grandma isn't still feeding them!

While we were gone, the gliders were fed:
Sugar Snap Peas
Carrots
Sweet Potatoes
Jicama
Cucumber
Green Bell Pepper
Grape Tomatoes
Frozen Mixed Berries
Apples
HPW Complete

Last night, they had:
Broccoli Slaw
Strawberries
Cantaloupe
HPW Complete.

Tonight it will be:
Broccoli Slaw
Frozen Mixed Berries
Scrambled Eggs.

Lol! So understandable!

Mama needs to do a little grocery shopping - thank goodness I found a guy that understands the need for shopping for fresh fruits and veggies while we barely eat any of that and usually frozen when we do! Lol!

Goodness...everyone will just shake their head at me for this one

About 2 weeks ago, I bought some frozen mixes of vegetables (Steamfresh veggies) to have on hand for those lazy nights. I bought a new one, an oriental mix of baby corn, snow peas, broccoli and carrots. I took it out to feed that evening and then realized I had other veggies that I needed to use first, so I tossed the mix into a ziploc and stuck it back in the freezer.

Fast forward to two nights ago. I pulled out the frozen mix in the ziploc and tossed it in a bowl, along with several other fruits and veggies, mixed it all together and let it sit on the counter to thaw a bit. An hour or so later, at feeding time, I went to mix it up again before serving and - there was this brown, sticky stuff all over everything!!! Stuck my finger in to taste it and what do you know - teriyaki!! lol! What I missed on the package was the fine print, stating that the vegetables were in an "oriental sauce".

The following day, I went to the store and checked the ingredients and though they are definitely not things I would normally feed to the monkeys (nor will I feed that mix again for that very reason), one night clearly didn't hurt things and in fact, Chinese Night in the Darling household was a HUGE hit!
