Mike Mudding

Thanks to Mike, Jeff's brother, he was able to come out and drywall for us. He did a fabulous job! It's finally turning into a real room.

Great Chicken Spaghetti

Okay, this is a really good recipe. Here are some pics and the recipe:
Pioneer Woman Chicken Spaghetti
2 c. cooked chicken
2 cans cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup
2 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 c. finely diced green pepper
1/2 c. finely diced onion
1 (4oz.) jar diced pimentos, drained
3 c. dry spaghetti, broken into 2 in. pieces
2 c. reserved chicken broth from pot
1 t. Lawry's season salt
1/8 t. to 1/4 t. cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
1 additional cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

Cook 1 cut up fryer and pick out the meat to make 2 cups. Cook spaghetti in same chicken broth until al dente. Don't overcook. When spaghetti is cooked, combine remaining ingredients except additional 1 c. cheese. Place mixture in casserole pan and top with remaining cheddar cheese. Cover and freeze up to 6 months. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 days, or bake immediately. 350* for 45 min. until bubbly.
