#11 Chicken Spaghetti

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

One of my favorite bloggers is Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman. I've been following her blog for a while. She now has a cookbook, a kids book, taped a Throwdown Challenge (Thanksgiving) against Bobby Flay and now have her own show on Food Network. She's real. She's a wife of a rancher. She's a mom of 4 kids whom she also home schools. And she's a great cook.

We have tried out a handful of PW recipes and one of our all-time favorites is Chicken Spaghetti.  I made this when we hosted our small group from church at our house. We had a lot of leftovers (because I always seem to cook for a small army--a trait I learned from my mother) so guess what's in our lunch boxes the next day...

Chicken Spaghetti w/melon and yogurt (Miss C) 

So as I was packing Miss C's lunch I remembered that I had forgotten her fork every time we use that Thermos bowl. I grabbed a red fork and put it on the counter... but of course I forgot to put it INSIDE her lunch box. *sigh* And she said that her yogurt exploded a little bit from the silicone ice pop thing. I think I have to freeze her yogurt so that it does not happen again.

I did not end up eating my lunch yesterday (I ate it today). My coworker convinced me to get lunch from Chili's since 100% of their net profit from yesterday's sales was donated to St. Jude's Children Hospital. Great cause. And I like Chili's. So it did not take a lot to convince me to save my lunch for the next day.
