What's on the Menu Monday

Well another week has flown by and i hope you all have enjoyed cooking this week! I have missed it tremendously...last Monday evening, mid cooking (for 12 people) our stove died. It took our landlord until today to get it fixed...but we have a brand new oven now! (they couldnt fix the other one!) So I have one last week to cook before Vernon heads to Sudan and I to Missouri.

On the menu today is a family favorite. It makes a great meal that needs no sides but pairs nicely with a fruit salad if you need more food. I kinda make shift this meal so measurements will be lacking, but give it a whirl! Everyone who makes it has their own create yours!

I am not sure even what to call it so i will call it....

Sun Dried Pasta Chicken Yumminess!
3 servings of Bow Tie Pasta
3 Chicken breast
1/2 stick Butter
one yellow sweet onion
6 oz Sun Dried Tomatoes
1 cup Pine nuts
1 cup Half and Half (add more if you like it creamier)
1 package of shredded Parmesan
(i usually add cracked red pepper somewhere!)

Cut 3 chicken breasts in to bite size pieces and saute (until fully cooked) in a bit of olive oil and garlic.
Boil water and cook Bow Tie Pasta. Strain.
In separate skillet (needs to be large enough to hold everything at the end) melt a half stick of butter. When melted add one yellow sweet onion and approx 6oz of Sun-dried Tomatoes. (smaller sliced ones are better in my opinion) Cook with lid for 3 min. add pine nuts.
Add Chicken to onion/sdt mix and then add Pasta. Stir together and add half and half. Stir and add Parmesan.
Let sit and add more Parmesan.

Mike was installing a new sink for us Sunday afternoon, and everything that could have gone wrong did, so we still didn't have a sink tonight. Not wanting to dirty up any dishes that I would be unable to wash, I fixed this recipe:

1. Pick up telephone.
2. Call Black-eyed Pea.
3. Drive to said establishment.
4. Return home with dinner.
