Chicken and Noodles


Butternut Squash Soup with Fried Sage

Look for butternut squash soup in a package in the soup aisle. Heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in a small saucepan or skillet. Add a handful of fresh sage leaves and fry for 10-15 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Garnish soup with leaves.

Herb Crescent Rolls

Unroll a package of refrigerated crescent rolls. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley and rosemary. Roll and bake as directed on package.

Chocolate Raspberry Sundaes

Top chocolate ice cream with warm seedless raspberry preserves. Add whipped cream and toasted almonds.
