Stella's Crock Pot Chicken Noodles

One of my mom’s signature dishes that was passed down through our family is homemade chicken noodles.  She would fix a five gallon kettle of them for Thanksgiving!  However, sometimes when it was just a few people over for dinner, she would fix a crock pot version using Reames brand frozen noodles.  This was faster than going to the trouble of making noodles from scratch.  In honor of mom, here’s the recipe. -John Morgan

Quinoa and Black Beans

A flowering plant in the amaranthus family, quinoa is a pseudograin that is grown for it seeds.  After harvest, the seeds are processed to remove the bitter-tasting outer seed coat. Versatile for many dishes, cooked quinoa supplies nutrient content similar to wheat and rice, such as moderate amounts of protein, dietary fiber, and minerals. Quinoa is gluten-free.  Quinoa originated in the Andes mountains of northwestern South America.
