The Swedish Goddess lazy dinner

One thing, well two things actually, that I forgot while making the weekly meal plan on Sunday, was the plans I made for the week. Tuesday night saw me celebrate Latte Mums new job (big congrats to her)and today I’ll be heading out for some stand-up comedy, thus no dinners.
Last night I had no plans, still managed to get home late and was in no mood to  cook a fancy dinner. That’s when you go through your stock to find something quick and easy, which I did! From time to time my store have specials on precooked corn on the cob, I try to make sure to always have some at home. I cut them up in smaller bits, boil them and serve with a healthy dollop of butter, salt and pepper. On the rare occasions that I have sour cream at home, I add that as well.

Quick, easy, cheap and totally yum! What did you have for dinner last night?

The Swedish Goddess Lovely Chicken and Noodle Stir-fry

Going treasure hunting in the cupboards can yield fantastic results sometimes, like this real good chicken and noodle stir-fry. Today I managed to find;

  • Fresh lime and lemon
  • Red and green bell pepper
  • Red onion
  • Noodles
  • Chicken breast

Cook the noodles according to the package, then chop up the chicken and fry it (I’m lucky enough to own a mini-wok that is perfect for one-person-dinners).ChickenChop up whatever vegetables you have, I like big chunks in my food;Veggies

Then add them to the chicken.


Veggies added (2)Today I seasoned with fish sauce, soy, fresh lime and lemon and some salt, for me that was enough.Lime and lemonWhen the chicken and the veggies are cooked to your satisfaction (I like crunchy veggies) add the noodles.Noodles addedAnd stir!StiredVoila, a quick and easy dinner that works out to about 10,65sek (€1,22 $1,62) per portion.
