Supreme Comfort Food! Two Tasty Favorites!

Are you in need of some food love?  This is my ultimate favorite comfort food dinner.  The Cream Cheese Chicken Roll recipe originated straight from my Grandma’s kitchen.  These rolls aren’t fancy, but they are oh so tasty.  Then, there’s Strawberry Spinach Salad.   This recipe has been around the block, but could always use some new followers.  It’s more like a desert than a salad, and I am utterly hooked!

Cream Cheese Chicken Rolls
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened (I used only 1/4 cup butter today.)

Combine cream cheese and butter, then mix in the next 7 ingredients:

2 1/2 cups cooked chicken or turkey, cut into small chunks
2 medium minced green onions
1/4 cup red or green bell pepper 
2 stalks diced celery
4 ounce can mushrooms, drained
1/2 teaspoon sage
salt and pepper to taste

2 packages crescent rolls
1/2 cup butter 
(I dipped half of my rolls in Light Smart Balance instead of butter and couldn’t tell the difference.)

 Roll each square (two triangles) of dough to flatten.  Place 1/4 cup mixture in each square.  Roll and fold ends under.  Melt butter.  Dip each roll in melted butter, then roll in corn flakes.  Bake with rolled side down in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.  Enjoy! (Rolls also freeze well.)

Serve with the following gravey:

3 cups broth
1/4 cup butter
1 can evaporated milk
1/4 cup flour
 Heat broth and butter.  Combine evaporated milk and butter well, the stir in hot broth mixture.  Heat and stir until thickened.

Lazy Mom’s Gravy
(my preferred method) is as follows:
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can evaporated milk
Combine; heat to desired temperature. 

Strawberry Spinach Salad

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
(I like Balsamic.)
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
(Try toasting them in the microwave.)
1 1/2 teaspoons minced onion
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 10 ounce bag spinach
1 lb. strawberries, sliced

Mix the first 8 ingredients in the blender.  Toss with strawberries and spinach.  You may have a little leftover dressing.  Top with chopped toffee almonds or pecans.

Spinach never tasted so good!
