  1. This was a delightful lunch! I used my leftovers - a cooked chicken breast - along with a canned mandarin orange and grape tomatoes. I had a half od a red pepper so I used that and cavatappi pasta. Thanks for posting! **Made for March 2008 Aussie Recipe Swap**
  2. I always have random leftovers in my fridge. Today I had some chicken left over ziti and fresh cut veggierse from a veggie tray so this recipe was perfect. I used miracle whip and a little celery salt and it came out great. Excellent use of leftovers!


I'm the mother to two boys (Yaron °2002, Noah °2004) and I am happily married since 2000. I work as an administrative assistant in a primary school. I have liked cooking since I was a little girl, strangely enough, my mother never really enjoyed cooking, so I don't know where I am getting it from. Cooking is really taking a break for me (at least of my two boys will leave me to it). I try to involve my kids as much as possible in cooking and they already enjoy making cookies, cakes and popsicles. I like to bake so when it's their birthday I let them choose their favourite cake. This year I made a pirate ship for the youngest one and a treasure chest for my oldest. I am active in my children's school and I like to craft when there's time left, which isn't too much lately. Every night before I go to bed, I need to read at least a chapter in a book. It has become such a ritual that it is hard to sleep when I haven't. I do have quite a few cookbooks, but the ones I would miss the most if I'ld lost them (even if I don't make that much recipes out of them) are my great grandmothers cookbooks, which are partly just little pieces of paper with a recipe scribbled onto it. I also really like the cookbooks and tv-shows of Jamie Oliver and Nigela Lawson. I really like the countryside, even if I don't really live in it. (I live in a suburb of Bruges) My dream is to one day buy a small little farmhouse with just a few animals and a beautiful garden, where I could grow some veggies to can in summer. Well, one can dream can we... My pet peeves are agressive drivers, people who don't take others into consideration and who are selfish. <embed src="http://lilgreenpatch.com/fb/greentrees/badge/badge.swf?badgeId=593493549,0" quality="high" salign="lt" width="130" height="160" wmode="transparent" name="LGP" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"/> </embed> <a href="http://lilgreenpatch.com/fb/greentrees/badge/badgelanding.php?badgeId=593493549,0&src=1" > <img src="http://greenpatch.s3.amazonaws.com/clear.gif" border="0" height="160" width="130" bgcolor="#00FF66"/> </a> <a href="http://www.TickerFactory.com/"> <img border="0" src="http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/4;10748;127/st/20080628/e/Going+to+Bretagne%2C+France/k/32aa/event.png"></a> <a href="http://lilypie.com"><img src="http://b5.lilypie.com/yoQbp1.png" alt="Lilypie 5th Birthday Ticker" border="0" /></a> <a href="http://lilypie.com"><img src="http://by.lilypie.com/3lmnp2.png" alt="Lilypie 6th to 18th Ticker" border="0" /></a> <a href="http://daisypath.com"><img src="http://dn.daisypath.com/i2lqp2.png" alt="DaisypathAnniversary Years Ticker" border="0" width="400" height="80" /></a> <a href="http://www.maploco.com/view.php?id=2025848">You are now marked on my visitor map!</a><a href="http://www.maploco.com/view.php?id=2025848"><img border=0 src="http://www.maploco.com/vmap/2025848.png" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="http://www.maploco.com/">Create your own visitor map!</a> Participation & Awards: <a href="http://s182.photobucket.com/albums/x11/texacorw/March%202008/?action=view¤t=thelorikeets.gif" target="_blank"><img src="http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x11/texacorw/March%202008/thelorikeets.gif" border="0" alt="March Aussie Tag Badge"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/ZaarWorldTourPartBanner.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/World%20Tour/ZWT2.gif"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q138/mswarzie/banner2.gif> [img]http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u132/marlittmk/banner2.gif[/img] <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
