Winner Winner, chicken dinner. Welcome to our fave fast get yer husband off yer back dinners.
Ok, we really do not make our own pasta, unless, of course, we have purchased a pair of Louboutin sandals at the Neimans sale.
And charged it.
So, in a pinch, we will help you here, show you how to ask forgiveness, and keep a man’s insides happy.
Because, as my mother has always said, if he isn’t horny, make him a sandwich.
CHICKEN MACARONI CASSEROLE THAT IS FABULOUS!
You know, I do troll Pinterest for recipes. Who doesn’t? And then going back and finding what you pinned is a bit of a chore. I still like to operate from worn out old recipe cards. But I digress.

So it gets the Winner Winner Chicken Dinner F51 ‘s First Award for a Food Orgasm!.
