Our Trip to Aunt Kristi's House

Natalie and her Junie B. Jones storyboard
The twins and I had a great time visiting with my sister, brother-in-law, and nieces this past weekend. They have recently moved to Meridain, so we loaded up after Mother's Day Out Thursday and headed south. The twins had a great time playing with their cousins, Natalie and Alyson. While we were there, I was able to eat lunch at school with Natalie on Friday, then we did a little shopping. Saturday we watched MSU play football on TV. After going to church Sunday, we headed home. I was also able to help Natalie with her storyboard for school. That was a lot of fun. We are looking forward to a visit from them next week, just prior to Thanksgiving. I can't wait to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with a house full of family!!
My sister would never admit to this, but she is a wonderful cook. She cooked a couple of my favorite dishes for me while we were there... I have listed one of them below.
Chicken Spaghetti
1 package of thin spaghetti (7 to 16 oz depending on the size dish you want to make, I think I used 12 or 16 oz this time), cook as directed.
1 Rostisserie chicken (or 2 cans of chicken if you are in a hurry), pulled
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can rotel (I use mild)
1 lb velveeta cheese, cubed
1 small can english peas
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Mix all ingredients together except for shredded cheese. If I am fixing a small dish, I usually leave off the cream of chicken soup unless you want it a little soupy.
Pour into a casserole dish and top with cheddar cheese. Cook at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and bubbly (usually about 30-40 minutes).

Thanks for the recipe! It will be a nice change from "regular old" spaghetti!
