Chicken Spaghetti

Chicken Spaghetti

My wife calls it Chicken Spaghetti.  I’d call it lots of cheese and chicken.  Whatever you call it, it’s got a lot of dairy products in it.

Elizabethe got this recipe from a lady at the temple.  She’s  been after me to make it.  So, I made it for the missionaries today.  Basically, it’s cream cheese and parmesan cheese and canned chicken soup .  It has other stuff in it, but that’s the main sauce base.

Gospel Discussions

We had a nice gospel discussion with Sisters Henrie and Murdock.  We talked about testimony and the atonement of Jesus Christ.  It made for a good feeling in our home.

Elizabethe and I are very blessed to have these missionaries visit often.  While they see it as a blessing that we feed them, it is equally a blessing to us to have them visit with us and talk about things of the spirit.

I’ll admit it is a stroke to the ego when they tell us that I’ve got a reputation for feeding the missionaries good meals.  However, I don’t feed them to have my ego stroked.  I feed them out of gratitude for the many people of Colorado, Wyoming and Kansas who fed me as a young missionary.

When I first entered the mission in August of 1976, my new companion said, “Wednesday nights we have a standing D.A.  (that’s dinner appointment).  Never schedule anything for Wednesdays around dinner time.”

I came to love and appreciate the Ruffino Family.  Sister Ruffino would go all out in preparing dinner for us.  Wednesday nights were like a big family Sunday Dinner.  No matter what she cooked, it was delicious and my companion and I always felt like we were special guests.

How do you repay something like that?

You feed the missionaries.
