  • ok this sounds wierd but it is good, it is called FACY FRANKS, you make some spegetti noodles, then add cut up hotdogs, (Either fried beforhand or not, doen'st matter)then heat one of those big cans of tomato juice, and half a log of velveta, when it is melted and all mixed together add the noodles and franks, heat it all together, and vuala, fancy franks, i guess you could call it a stew, and i think it would be fun to watch a three year old eat, I did this from memory, so I hope it works!

  • Here's a good, healthy meal loved by my family:

    Homemade chicken noodle soup:

    4 quarts lower sodium chicken stock or broth
    1 medium onion
    10 chicken tenders or 4 chicken breast halves boneless skinless
    1 tsp dried thyme
    2 carrots
    2 stalks celery
    1 cup frozen corn kernels
    1 cup frozen green peas
    1 14 oz package No Yolks egg dumplings

    Bring the stock to a boil. Add the onion (diced small) and the chicken tenderloins whole. Simmer covered for about 20 minutes til the chicken is done. Pull the chicken out and cut it into bite sized pieces. Return it to the broth. Add the thyme, carrots (sliced about 1/4" thick), and celery (sliced). simmer another 15 minutes or so til the carrots are tender. Add the peas and corn, and cook another 7-10 minutes. Add about 2/3 of the bag of dumplings, cover and cook for 8 minutes til the dumplings are done. Add black pepper to taste. Serve with whole grain crackers or dinn
