How's it Cookin Good Lookin ?!?!?!?

DAY 96 

So I'm a bit OCD sometimes. 

When I asked the hubbs what he wanted for dinner last night he told me Crock Pot Chicken Spaghetti. This was a new recipe that I added on to our weekly menu, so I was excited to try it. Lucky for me it only took 3 hours to cook in the crock pot, meaning all the cooking was left to my wonderful hubby. Since Tuesday nights are spin night I don't get home till 6:30. Even if I came home on my lunch at 1:00 and started it, it would still be done way early. 
I told the hubbs that it was going to be all on him if he wanted spaghetti for dinner and he was totally fine with it. So this morning I took it upon myself & went ahead with getting things set up for him and prepped. I try to make things as easy as possible for him, I've come to find that this also makes for a much simpler clean up in the end. 
I printed the recipe, laid out all the needed ingredients, along with the can opener, cooking spray, crock pot & cookie sheet to cook the garlic bread on. I even left a note on the cookie sheet saying that it was for the bread that was in the freezer. I'm positive that he could have managed everything on his own with only me printing the recipe (which he asked me to might I add). But I do have a bit of OCD when it comes to the kitchen, things being in there place and just so. 
I'm pleased to say that I came home to dinner cooked, the kitchen cleaned and dishes done. Dinner turned out fabulous, we both loved loved loved it. I think I have a new favorite meal that will be added on to the must have once a month or so list. lol  

I'll go ahead and share the fabulousness below for you all to try, seriously its got to be one of the simplest recipes ever!!!! Try it out and let me know what you think!!!!

HMMM. I think I just might have to make this next week!! :) Sounds really easy and super tasty!

I love that you laid everything out for him! HAHA I am the same way, I know Snookums can take care of himself and figure things out, but most likely he's gonna ask me a question anyway bc he knows I like things done a certain way.
