Crockpot Chicken Parmesan
Chicken Fettucini Alfredo
I'm trying to try at least one new recipe a week. This week's recipe, the Crockpot Chicken Parmesan, got great reviews from the people who tried it. My boys love spaghetti and sauce so hopefully they won't mind having a little chicken with it!
I usually make the alfredo sauce from scratch, but I'm doing a little research for a lower calorie recipe . . . I know I used to have one using the laughing cow cheese. I've got to do something if I want to keep losing weight. I didn't go to WW last Saturday because I just didn't feel like it, but I did go the week before and had lost another 2 pounds.
That makes 18 pounds total since I started on January 2nd! I've got to get back serious . . . I haven't been drinking my water or exercising so that's my goal for the next week.

Hope all is well in your home. Today's been a very stressful day emotionally. A little boy disappeared from his family's yard yesterday, and he was found this morning in a pond . . . gone forever from his parent's arms . . . A sweet dear friend of ours also went to Jesus today after battling an illness for weeks . . . I have had this all on my mind -- all day . . .
Dave and I spent the afternoon with our boys -- outside -- piddling around. I think we both were thinking the same thing . . . how blessed we are . . . how life is so fleeting . . . how we shouldn't take these moments with the boys for granted . . . They are growing up so fast!
I enjoyed talking to her so much! I wish I could see her smiling face in person! She lives in Connecticut so I don't get to see her too often. In fact, I don't remember when I saw her last! But I miss her and wish I could see her. She's actually going to be in Memphis this weekend and if I could, I would go see her there.
But unfortunately, Dave is working this weekend and I wouldn't ever want to go to Memphis by myself with the Ferrell boys!
So I'll just have to settle with phone conversations until she's back home in Mississippi again.
Hey Jane! I hope you are reading this and know I love you!
The pictures of the boys -- I posted these for you - Jane! Hopefully I'll see you sometime soon . . . so until then . . . keep reading about . . .
the Ferrell boys and me!
