I'm So Over It!

It was snowing again this morning.  I had to drive 40 mph to work and Isaiah got all bent out of shape when the snow was falling on his blankee as we walked into daycare so he tried to run and dang near biffed it on the sidewalk.  Then he forgot all about me as soon as we walked in the door.  Hey, have I mentioned that the new daycare is going well?  Isaiah runs and hides every time Evan or I show up to pick them up.  He doesn't want to leave!

I still feel cruddy.  I wish I could share better news, but the truth is that I'm surviving on my prenatal vitamin, apples, and bowls of cereal.  Cooking dinner for everyone else is the WORST.  Just the smell of the "real food" makes my stomach do back handsprings.  Take Tuesday night, for example.  I made chicken quesadillas and the second the onions hit the pan with the olive oil, my tummy jumped into my throat.  When I tossed in the chicken and sprinkled on some taco seasoning.....I was done for.  Evan said it was delicious while I choked down my bowl of Special K. 

The chicken noodle casserole I made on Monday was a hit with everyone but Isaiah (but he's a freak when it comes to food) and my preggo tummy.  When I posted on Facebook that I was making it, I had three people request the recipe, so I'll put it on here too.  Caution:  Not recommended for Mommys in the midst of morning sickness.

Chicken Noodle Casserole
1 can Cream of Chix soup
1/2 cup milk (or add more if you want it more creamy)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup frozen peas (I pre-cooked mine a bit)
A good shake or two of garlic salt
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 cups of cooked, diced chicken breast
2 cups (ish) of cooked pasta (I used linguine, but egg noodles would be fine too)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cook chicken in a skillet with a bit of olive oil and cook your pasta.  In a mixing bowl, combine soup, milk, Parmesan cheese, about half of your cheddar cheese, peas, and seasonings.  Stir in chicken and pasta when they are finished.  Transfer the whole works to a casserole dish and cook for 25 minutes.  Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese on top, allow to melt.  EAT!

Sounds decent, right?  Evan assures me it was good, but I didn't last more than two bites before I grabbed the cereal box.  I'm so over it.
