Cajun Chicken and Sausage
I’m doing the Transformation Challenge at Orange Theory, so currently really pushing myself to eat healthy. I’m tracking what I eat and trying to make good choices. First week down and I did pretty good. The key is all about being prepared. This week, I was prepared for lunch with this delicious meal!
- 1 container (28 spears ea.), Asparagus Spears
- 1 container (16 oz ea.), Smoked Sausage
- 1 tablespoon, Oil – Olive
- 24 oz, Chicken
- 2 squash, Cooked
- 2 tsp, Cajun Seasoning
I used a wok, since it holds the most food of all my pans. I put a little olive oil, then threw in the squash and zucchini.
Then I threw in the asparagus and sprinkled the cajun seasoning all over it.
Then I added the (precooked frozen) chicken and Ekrich Sausage.
This is SOOO delicious!!! Definitely going to be a staple for my meal prep.
Dallas ISD Chess Pie
Dallas ISD had the best cafeteria food in the 80’s. Almost everything was made from scratch. Even with the good food, I used to get a chocolate bar from Mr. Lancaster’s class and get two $.10 rolls with butter for lunch. Some of my favorite school cafeteria food, (when I ventured off from my lunch of champions), were Fiesta Salad, Rectangular Pizza, and Chicken Fried Steak!!! I even liked those fried fish squares with tartar sauce.
I think DISD was most famous for Chess Pie, but when everyone started to worry about childhood obesity, pies were off the menu. My friend, Flo, has been trying to recreate the recipe, and he thinks he has it!! Since this is a little more than my skills will allow, someone has to try to make this and let me know how it turns out!!!
