Mrs. Jetplane Cooks...

I cook almost every night, but I'm lucky I have a great husband that cooks as well. And since he gets home before I do 75% of the time right now, he starts the meals during the week. However, on Sundays I spend time making a meal that I wouldn't be able to make during the week (and get it on the table at a decent time).

My goal is to cook 1 new recipe a week, and add new dinners to my repertoire. Then I generally ask Mr. Jetplane what he'd like for the week. Sometimes he's rather helpful... other times (most of the times) he's not. He's recently started asking for a menu so he can select from... ha ha... not happening bud.

So today I made Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti. And it was quite a hit. However... it took quite some time to prepare it. You can take a look at her recipe here.

Here's Mrs. Jetplane's version.... Not bad, right?

I followed the recipe pretty close. A couple things I did different.

1. I didn't use a whole chicken. I bought split chicken breasts with skin on. It came 3 to a package and it was only $4.20 at the commissary today. I actually only had to use 2 of them since they were so large, 2 gave me more than the 2 cups of cooked chicken that the recipe required.
2. I didn't use Sharp Cheddar, I used Mild Cheddar, its what we already had at the house.
I paired the dish with Mexi-Corn. I have a deep love for Mexi-Corn, yeah its totally weird, but I love that canned corn side dish.
Hope you all are having a great Sunday evening... True Blood tonight.... oh yeah!!! I'm excited. I already have a dessert and cocktail planned for the viewing...

This is something that I need to start doing. I am in a cooking rut B.I.G. time! Keep your wonderful readers updated on what you cook and if you can link or post the recipe. I would love to add to my collection, er stash, of recipes!
