Chicken Macaroni
One of the first dishes that I ever made for this blog was my Grandmother’s Good Chicken Spaghetti.  This recipe is ONE of my favorites!

I decided to take a different approach to the classic recipe and make chicken macaroni instead.  I love spaghetti noodles but I love macaroni noodles even more.  If you like mac and cheese or chicken spaghetti then I highly recommend this recipe makeover.

This week my writing on posts have been short.  A lot has been going on this week!  You know when you just have one of those crappy days/weeks? Well I am having one now.  I will probably write a post on it but right now I just really need to process everything.
