Feeling a little better today, but still no energy. I packed Eva her snack (left) and Gerald his breakfast and lunch (right). For Eva's snack: Goldfish, string cheese, carrot sticks, some colby cubes, a hard boiled egg bunny, and strawberries.  For Gerald: a Schwan's Chicken Quesadilla, carrot sticks, Schwan's Golden Fruit Blend, some colby cheese cubes and some garlic Triscuits.
     Breakfast:  Cinnamon Swirl Toast (playing it safe this morning!)
     Lunch:  Chicken nuggets and fries
     Dinner: Cranberry Chicken on brown rice with green beans. (Oh my gosh was this good!!)

I found this recipe on Hannah Help Me's website. LOVE her show, LOVE her website, LOVE this recipe!!

Cranberry Chicken

2 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup orange juice
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 lbs. chicken (about 4 breasts)

Melt butter in microwave, but let cool slightly before dumping in the bag. Dump all ingredients except chicken in a gallon-size zippered plastic bag and smoosh it together. Add chicken, seal completely and smoosh some more to thoroughly coat chicken. Empty into a casserole dish and cook at 350ยบ for 40 minutes or until done (juices run clear); cook in a slow cooker for 4-6 hours; or allow to marinate for two hours and toss on the grill.
    What I did: I mixed it all together, then tossed it into the fridge. I then cooked it at 450 degrees for 45 mins (my pieces were still a little frozen, thus the longer time). While it was cooking, I made up some brown rice (threw in a little chicken bouillen to give the rice some flavor) and steamed some green beans.
     When Gerald served it, he cubed the chicken and then poured some of the sauce over it. It was VERY yummy and the rice absorbed the sauce too!
