The weather I mean. Schools are closed here today because of the snowfall. While I would love to show you the weather that has stopped our fair city, by the time I had fed the girls, made DH's lunch and sent him on his way to work, put N2 down for a nap, and paid some attention to N1, it had all melted. For one who learned to drive in the winter in Canada and a husband from Ohio, this is quite the disappointment. Maybe EVENTUALLY we will get some of that real winter weather that everyone else is enjoying? :-)
In other news, I had a couple requests for my Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti recipe so here goes. Credit for this recipe goes to Menus for Moms:1 package (8 oz) spaghetti, broken in half (I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 regular spaghetti)
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 cup milk
1 T diced pimientos (optional)
1 can green chilis (optional)
1 Tbsp. tarragon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the chicken, 1 cup cheese, soup, milk, pimientos, green chilis, tarragon, salt and pepper. Drain spaghetti, add to the chicken mixture and toss to coat.
Transfer to a greased 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
Lastly, I have found a new cool website for my preschooler. (I think credit should go to Cheryl ... it was mentioned on the education threads at the Women at Home boards). It's the childcareland.com site ... it seems (from what I could tell) that the site is geared to those that run a daycare for preschoolers. There are some great little learning activities and lots of freebies to print out. Last night I printed several templates for months of the year and days of the week so that I can start to work on that with N1.
Today's craft: super easy and I had everything I needed. Card stock heart (they supply the template even), squares of pink vellum (they used tissue paper which I didn't have, but I have LOADS of pink vellum from baby shower invites I made someone), and glue sticks. Totally fun. :-)
