Hoagie Pizzas

I had some hoagie buns that I needed to use up before they went stale so this is what I came up with. Kalli wasn't enthusiastic about it at first but I said, "Okay, Taco Soup or Hoagie Pizza" Pizza won (sorry Emma-my kids just don't think Taco Soup sounds good) Anyway, here is the recipe that I made up.
Hoagie Buns split in half
Hunt's spaghetti sauce
mozzerella cheese
Split the Hoagie's in half. Spread on spaghetti sauce. Add your favorite toppings-we put on pepperoni and a little ham. Spread Cheese all over. Put in oven and cook for about 10-15 minutes at 400F. I'm guessing on the time so you better just watch until the buns get crispy and before the cheese turns brown. They are delicious! Enjoy!

I am suffering from C.A.A.D.D.

I need to put some bread recipes on here but unfortunately I am suffering from this disease called C.A.A.D.D. I didn't realize how bad I had it until my good friend Jenna Steed emailed me this and I realized that I suffered from it. Hopefully I will get the recipes up soon but the truth is I just am going in every direction and my house is a mess and I am doing everything else but put the recipe up here--someone tell me the cure!!!

Here are how the symptoms manifest:I decide to do the laundry. As I start toward the basement, I notice that there are cheerios all over the floor and mycar keys are in the cereal bowl.I decide to pick up the cheerios before I do the laundry. I lay mycar keys down on the counter, put the cheerios in the trash can under thecounter, and notice that the trash can is full. So, I decideto take out the trash.But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I takeout the trash I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook offthe table, and see that there is only one check left, my extra checksare in my desk in the office/playroom, so I go to my desk where I find asippy cup full of juice. I'm going to look for my checks, but first Idecide Ishould put the sippy cup in the refrigerator to keep it cold. As I headtoward the kitchen with the sippy cup a vase of flowers on the countercatches my eye - they need to be watered. I set the sippy cup on thecounter, and I discover baby wipes that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I betterput them back in the bathroom, but first I'm going to water the flowers. Iset the wipes back down, fill a container with water and suddenly I spotthe TV remote, one of the kids left it on the kitchen table. I realize thatafter school when they go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote asthey fight over who lost it, but I won't remember that it's on thekitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the denwhere it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on thefloor. So,I set the remote back down, get some paper towels and wipe upthe spill.Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.At the end of the day: the laundry isn't washed, the bills aren'tpaid, there is a warm cup of juice sitting on the counter,the flowers a ren't watered, there is still only one check in mycheckbook,I can't find the remote, I can't find the wipes, and I don'tremember what I did with the car keys.when when I try to figure out why nothing got donetoday, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long,and I'm really tired.I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some helpfor it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

Easy Chicken with Basil Cream Sauce

This recipe I got on the back of the American Beauty Bow Tie Pasta bag. Aaron kept asking for more! It is really good!
12 oz Bow tie pasta
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into strips
(I think this recipe is raw chicken and it cooks but I just used cooked chicken to begin with)
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 cup milk-
3 oz. cream cheese
1/2 tsp dried basil leaves
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Cook Noodles. Drain. In large skillet over medium heat melt butter. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Cook chicken until not pink. Add milk and heat until just to boiling; stir in cream cheese and basil. Reduce heat. Stir constantly until cream cheese is melted and chicken is cooked. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese. Toss in hot bow tie noodles and serve immediately!
