Three-Cheese Chicken Penne Bake


Okay, I feel better now.  I just worked 7 days straight to get through training at my new job and today is my first day off.  It has been completely amazing to be home for half a day and lots of evenings with my men.  I feel like a different person.  I’m happy and relaxed and I’m getting stuff done – on the blog and around the house.  Such a good decision. I’m ramping up a bunch of stuff for January right now.  I’m going to be doing a blogging series with lots of good info and tips I’ve learned.  I’m really looking forward to this series.  I’ve quite a few other  blogging series, because it’s smart to keep learning – lord knows I’m no where near where I want to be, and there are pieces that I think could be explained with more detail from a new blogger/”I didn’t know that!” perspective.  I’m going to try.  By no means am I some blogging guru, but I pay attention and ask questions of other bloggers I admire and I’m taking steps in the right direction.  Why not share? And now, an easy and delicious dinner.  Whip this bad boy up and have a cookie.  Cookies make everything better.
