#11 Chicken Spaghetti

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...

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.

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
