I did not take pictures of the cooking process because, frankly, looking at raw chicken grosses me out. I was a vegetarian for four years and I still have some issues, apparently. The veins, the stringy fat globs, the slimy texture... just no.
So now that everyone is good and hungry, on to the recipe!
Creamy Ranch Chicken Pasta
4-6 chicken breasts
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning Mix
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
8oz cream cheese
Veggies of your choice (peas and carrots work great)
1lb egg noodles
Cut your chicken into chunks and cook in an oiled skillet. Cook until golden brown, then add your veggies (I admit, I used a bag of frozen veggies this time. Next time I will use fresh!). Stir in packet of ranch dressing mix, along with your cream cheese. Cook until cheese is melted and gooey. Then add your cans of soup and stir until hot and bubbly.
Meanwhile, cook your egg noodles to your liking. I like al dente. Drain noodles, then combine them with your skillet ingredients. Coat noodles in mixture and serve!
This dish would be great with some dinner rolls and a side salad. And it could not be any easier!
It's so hard to believe that was three years ago.
Sleep, little willow
Peace gonna follow
Time will heal your wounds
Grow to the heavens
Now and forever
Always came too soon

drive by sit in front of the lot taking pictures until the workers start giving us dirty looks, I bring the kids over to the neighborhood park. It happens to be on the same street as our home, which is very convenient. We love the park!
It's a surreal feeling knowing that this is the park they will grow up playing at. I have so many fond memories of my own park when I was little and I can't wait to re-create the fun and innocence with my children. I'm looking forward to summer nights on the swings with Willow and basketball games with Liam.
September 30th cannot get here soon enough!
