Hubby in the Kitchen: Chicken & Mushrooms Spaghetti

The return of Hubby in the Kitchen...

That's right! He's back.

While he cooked dinner, I clipped coupons. I love coupons. What's better than saving money? Anything? Seriously, someone tell me.

I had some light chocolate Silk while waiting for dinner.

Ryan's Chicken & Mushrooms Spaghetti

-1/2 pound chicken, cut up in pieces
-1 green bell pepper
-1 box of chopped fresh mushrooms (we bought them cleaned and pre-sliced)
-Slices Onions (vile vegetables - I had to pick them out of my bowl)
-1 can pasta sauce
-1 small can diced tomatoes (ours were spicy w/lime)
-1 box whole grain spaghetti

Cook the chicken. In the same skillet, add in your veggies. Saute until tender. Add in sauce and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Add in pasta or serve over pasta. Done!

It was a great Hubby in the Kitchen. Hopefully this will become a regular affair again, especially now that I'm back in school.

Speaking of school, I wanted to tell you guys something funny that happened tonight.

So, I'm sitting in my chemistry class, which I REALLY hate. I'm sitting there watching the clock and thinking, "How does all this math crap at all relate to nutrition? When will I ever use this?"

At that exact moment, my teacher says, "I'm going to put an example on the board, and I want you guys to do it on your own."

The example started like this:

The recommended amount of sodium in the diet is 2400 mg per day...

I'll spare you the rest of the problem, but how's that for ironic? he he... That's what I get for questioning the educational system. Sigh...

Suggest a dish you'd like to see my hubby cook next week.


  1. Yay to Hubbys in the Kitchen! That pasta looks delicious! Great job, Ryan!
