On Dr. Oz they did a segment on store bought rotisserie chicken. Here are some recipes from that show.... all sound heavenly good!! This type of chicken was recommended, not only for the flavor and the ingredients but the price.....

Salsa verde chicken enchiladas
Cheesy chicken broccoli rice casserole
Chicken Alfredo pasta bake with sun dried tomatoes
Chicken and broccoli stuffed shells with Alfredo sauce



Later dinner was an air fryer cooked Omaha steak, leftover rice blend with veggies and an Omaha single serve cheese cake. OMGOOOOD!!



All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

National Ice Cream Sandwich Day

National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is a time to enjoy a cold sandwich.......an ice cream sandwich.
In July and August, we find many special days for one kind of ice cream or another. The ice cream sandwich is so popular, and tastes so good, that it earns its own special day....today.
Ice cream sandwiches have been around since the early 1900's. Vanilla, chocolate and a combination of the two, are the most popular. You can make homemade sandwiches. Just put some ice cream between a couple wafers, and.. ...Voilá! Don't have wafers? That's okay. Put some ice cream between two of your favorite cookies.

Today’s five facts about ice cream sandwiches:

  1. The 30-44 age group buys the most ice cream sandwiches.
  2. The average number of ice cream sandwiches eaten per second nationally is 48.
  3. The ice cream sandwich ranks as the second best-selling ice cream novelty in America.
  4. If all the ice cream sandwiches made last year were placed end to end, they would circle Earth 3 1/2 times.
  5. The eastern seaboard consumes almost 50 percent of all ice cream sandwiches.
