Loved that Swagger Wagon. If you haven't watched the video you really should! Anyway, I thought I would start posting some recipes on here. If you'd like to be added to post please let me know or you can post in the comments and I can post them for you. I hope it will be beneficial to everyone!

Ana's Chicken Fetticini

When we do Chicken Fettuccini, here's how we do it:
1 chicken breast (steamed in rice cooker & shredded)
6 T butter, divided
4 cloves garlic (or garlic powder)
1 T Italian seasoning
pasta (we use 1.5 lbs but you could use less)
1/4 c dry onion
1/3 c flour
1 T salt
3/4 t pepper
3 cups whole milk
1 cup milk
1/2 cup dry milk powder (optional)
8 oz shredded cheese
After steaming the chicken, I like to cook it on the stove with 2 T butter, garlic and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
Boil water and cook pasta
Melt 4 T butter in skillet, add onion, garlic, flour, salt and pepper and cook two minutes. Slowly add milk and stir until smooth and creamy. Add cheese, stir till melted. Add other stuff in and serve from one pot (or not, depending on how you like it.)

Thanks Ana!

White Spaghetti (Rylie's name for it)

Tonight we are having Chicken Alfredo or what Rylie likes to call it "White Spaghetti". Its probably not the healthiest but my kids love it! So here's the recipe:

4 chicken breasts (I vary with this)
1 stick of butter
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 packet of Italian dressing mix
3/4 to 1 package of cream cheese.

In Crockpot put in stick of butter, chicken, and packet of Italian dressing mix. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. When done stir around and take chicken out and shred. Put cream of chicken soup and cream cheese in crockpot let it melt a little bit stir together then put the shredded chicken back in and stir all together. Thats it! Sometimes I add some milk so the sauce isn't so thick.

Serve of

I serve it over whole wheat spaghetti noodles. Garlic bread tastes really good with this meal and a veggie! Let me know what you think!

Black Bean Quesadillas

So tonight was another quick dinner night. This is what we had:

Whole wheat tortillas with cheese, sour cream, avacado, black beans, and salsa. I wanted to put shredded lettuce on the side but I didn't have any. Served it with some fruit and done!

Tortilla Soup

Tonight we had leftovers of Tortilla Soup. I cheated and bought the Bear Creek Tortilla Soup mix you get at the store. I added shredded chicken, cheese, avacado, and sour cream. I served it with Chips!
