As a mother of twins I plan and live by a schedule.---> My babies schedule.. T & B eat at the same time, nap and even poop all at the same time. They usually stick to the plan..

But today this.. was NOT in the plan..

Poor little T.. His nose is running faster then I can keep up with it.. Every Sneeze, cough and hiccup..
and of course giggles.. = snooooottttttt

not in the plan.

Luckily, someone stuck to the plan..

The sudden wind and snow storm was not in the plan..

Missing my scheduled 3 Run.. NOT in the plan

Spending two hours being entertained by balloons.. not exactly in my plan..but I'll take it.

Chicken Melt with Veggie Ranch Pasta

Ingredients for chicken

  • 2 eggs whites
  • whole wheat crumbs
  • 2 chicken breast

  • Mozzarella cheese

Veggie Ranch Pasta

  • Whole wheat Pasta
  • 1 bag of frozen stir fry Veggies

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

  • Take your chicken and soak it in the egg whites and roll it in the whole wheat crumbs and place in 8x8 glass dish.

  • Place in oven and bake for 30-45 minutes until cooked throughly
  • While your chicken is baking, boil your noodles (I cooked the entire box but you could only do half, I save some for future meals.)

  • In a skillet, put 1 tsp of coconut oil and add your veggies, I didn't use anything special.

hello Walmart special...

  • Roast your veggies and then add the spinach cover for 3-5 minutes until spinach cooks
  • Then, add your hummus, almond milk, ranch dip and braggs liquid amino alternative soy sauce

simply organic is the best!! no msg!! fyi.. hidden valley ranch dip contains msg.

mmmmm.. creamy..

  • You may need to add more milk to make a nice creamy sauce. 

  • When chicken is done pull it out of the oven and pour desired amount of tomato sauce over chicken and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese

and place back in the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted on top! 

pasta + veggie mix + chicken melt = BEST dinner everrrrrrrrrr!!!
