Regrowing Scallions

I am asked quite often if it’s true putting a scallion in a bit of water that it will regrow.  I always do this during the winter as it’s an inexpensive way to have scallion greens throughout the winter when your garden is not producing.

Place the white ends in a cup of fresh water and change it every couple of days.  Chop what you need and in a few days it will sprout again and grow.

These 2 scallions were first used in mid December.  I have since been using just these two when I need scallion greens.

You can see where I have chopped them and the new growth.  This was 4 days after I used them.

This picture is 11 days later.  They are almost full grown.  The one laying down I was using tonight and started to chop it but decided to put it back in for the picture.

Give it a try for fresh scallions all winter 🙂

Chicken Rollups

IMG_1582

Simple, quick and easy meals are a must do in my world.  These chicken rollups are a perfect dinner you can put together in less than 10 minutes and pop in the oven for 35 minutes and have a wonderful meal.  It’s a sure hit with everyone having chicken, stuffing and gravy all in one.  We topped it off with some homemade cranberry sauce adding to the “comfort food” level!

The ingredients include thin chicken breasts, stuffing (you can use boxed to keep it quick but I like to make my own), 1 can of cream of chicken or celery soup, 1/2 cup of milk.  That’s it!

Here are more pictures and the recipe at the bottom.
