The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 137

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Hope you all had a great week, maybe even a Funky Friday, and are looking forward to a fabulous weekend!

This past week was awesome at work, got my own area, learning more from doing than sitting in any class.  I really feel like I’m fitting in, getting into the swing of things.

William had a pretty good week at school, no major issues, not a ton of homework, rode his bike home two days without incidents, spent the other three with a friend.  Thank goodness his mom only works part time and can handle William!  Gotta remember to pay her next week, I’m a little behind.

James had a good week at work, got cleared to go back to regular duty, feeling all better.  Getting a lot of hours, so he’s getting a decent paycheck.  He’s taking my car for the weekend after he gets home tonight, guess I’ll just have to borrow Mike’s if I need to go anywhere!

Mike is feeling much better today.  Think the worst of that stomach bug is over with.  Feel kind of bad that he had to do the liquid diet thing one day, then the “white” diet the next day, but he’s feeling better, so it was worth it.

So tonight, I started the first cooking for the weekend.  Made a big meal that had plenty of leftovers, which is what I plan on doing all weekend so we can get through until payday on Wednesday!  Here’s the first big recipe:

Chicken Spaghetti

3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 cans tomato paste

1 packet chicken Flavor Boost

1 quart water

1 Tsp garlic powder

1 Bay leaf

Mix everything except the chicken in the crock pot until you have something that looks more like tomato juice.  Add the chicken, and cook on LOW 8-10 hours.

When you get home in the evening, put on a pot of spaghetti, and while it’s cooking, remove the chicken from the crock pot, shred it, then put it in a sauce pan with a large jar of spaghetti sauce.  Heat just until heated through, since the chicken is already cooked.  Drain the spaghetti, mix the spaghetti and chicken sauce all in the larger pot, and serve by the bowl!  Top with shredded cheese or Parmesan cheese, it’s up to you!!

Three of us ate very well, and I had almost half of it leftover, two meals in one!

Tomorrow, I start on the homemade breads…

Until then, eat well, love well, live well!!
