So... why no post yesterday? Well, yesterday was quite possibly the most stressful day in the life of my entire family. My aunt Joy (second mom, basically) had a serious surgery, which did not go as planned (to say the least). She is doing well right now, but last night was a little stressful, so no post. No real dinner either, just munching while waiting for updated phone calls.
--Additional prayers are always welcome, of course!--
Here is something from the other day.....
I got this original recipe from Cooking for Two, but have made some changes. The stats about the recipe are according to the original, so they are not entirely accurate. Sorry. :)
I think this would qualify as one of Nate's favorite recipes! It has an interesting taste, and VERY filling. I usually don't finish my portion of it--Nate has to. :)
Chicken Alfredo Stromboli

1/2 Loaf Italian bread
6 Ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
