We definitely had a good time! Maybe next time there'll be a bigger crowd. :)

Sorry so many people had to cancel last minute. My phone got blown up in the hour before with people having sick kids, working, and other stuff coming up. I brought the recipe for my prize winning (literally won prize for them) Killer Kahlua Brownies, along with the modifications to make them a bit healthier...although they taste better if you make them the original way, I'm sure! The five of us who were there had a good time, even if the Riverwalk was a bit crowded and it was pretty muggy, hot, and humid.

Bummed that I can't make it after all (hope I can make it to the next one! You guys are all such lovely people!)

So, since I can't make it, I figured I share my recipe anyway.
I went with an easy one that I make to take for lunch during the week.

----------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
------------------------------

Ingredients:
Ragu Roasted Garlic Parmesan Alfredo Sauce (Light) - 1 jar
Bowtie/Farfalle Noodles - 1 box
Frozen chicken breasts - 2 or 3
Frozen veggies (any assortment) - 1 or 2 6/8oz bags (I like lots of veg)

Cooking:
Boil the chicken until fully cooked.
Steam the veggies (I get lazy sometimes and just get the ones you can steam in-bag).
Boil the noodles until fully cooked.

Once all food is fully cooked, drain everything in a colander (the less water the better), and cut the chicken into bite-sized chunks.
Then, dump everything into a large bowl and pour the sauce over it.
Mix well and serve.

----------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
------------------------------

Obviously, there's lots of possible customization with this, but I like it because it's cheap, easy, makes enough to last me just about all week, is high in protein and an easy way to get veggies. The sodium isn't too bad, considering the sauce is pre-made, but savvier cooks than I could probably really work this recipe up well.

Enjoy!

Well, the holiday meet up is tomorrow night. Anyone having any problems at all finding us can feel free to call me at 844-6126.

I'll be wearing a multiple shades of brown kind of sweater top and brown slacks. Make sure you wear comfy shoes for the walk on the River. It may not be dressy, but my good old workout/walking shoes will have to do!

Hope to see a lot of smiling faces tomorrow night. Remember to feel free to bring a friend or family with you. See you there!

Well I spoke too soon. We are NOT going to be able to make it to the river on the 8th. My hubby has his Xmas party that night.

Sorry, sooner or later I will make it to an event.

Thanks for planning, sounds like fun.

I need to get this done for me and only I can do it!

On Saturday, December 8th at 7 pm we will be meeting downtown at the River Center Mall Food Court for a recipe exchange and then walk on the River to enjoy the lights and decorations. We so hope you will join us. You are welcome to bring a friend, spouse, or family.

How the recipe exchange works is simple, and you have the option of participating or not participating, as it is NOT mandatory to do so. Print out about a dozen copies of your favorite holiday or any occasion special recipe. Hand printing is fine if you feel up to making that many! We will pass them out to anyone who wants them or thinks they will enjoy making them. It's a great way to try new dishes. All recipes will be printed on the team page after the event in case we run short and also to share with members who can't make the meet up.

After the exchange and a little "getting to know you" time, we will all stroll the Riverwalk and enjoy the sights, sounds, and fun that are always abundant at this time of year. Please be at the food court no later than 7:15 or we might miss you. We will start our walk to the river between 7:15 and 7:30ish.

Please bear in mind that you have to pay to park at the River Center Mall, as well as many other areas downtown. If you can, offer to carpool with others or ask for a ride. You can always split the cost of the parking!

I will be posting this as an official Spark Rally later today. It would be appreciated if you would RSVP on the Spark America site once the event is posted there. RSVPing is NOT mandatory either, but it would help to know approximately how many folks and who is coming. Thanks so much!
