Impeccable day

Yesterday after I kissed my daughter, I said to her, "Have a wonderful day." Then I kissed my son good bye and I didn't want to be repetitive so I said, "Have a great day." He looked at me disappointed and asked, "I can't have a wonderful day?" 
Don't worry because I replied that I hope he has an impeccable day. When I kissed them good bye today, I told them both to have a wonderful day. They both replied impeccable day. I just wonder what type of day they will have tomorrow.
I hope you will have a wonderful, great, and impeccable day. If you make this dish, at least your supper will be great. I even had leftovers to freeze for another day. I figure if I make more of the recipes in The Pioneer Woman Cooks Cookbook then I can justify why I should buy her new cookbook. I served the chicken spaghetti with this bread which my husband request often. I just formed rolls instead and they came out wonderful.

Chicken Spaghetti
1 chicken, cup into pieces
1 lb spaghetti
1 4 oz. pimiento jar, diced and drained
1 small onion, finely diced
1/2 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp Lawry's season salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

  1. Add the chicken to a stock pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer the chicken until it is cooked about 25 minutes.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside to cool.
  4. From the pot, remove 2 cups of broth and set aside.
  5. Bring the remaining liquid in the pot to a boil and add the spaghetti. Cook until al dente.
  6. Drain the spaghetti and discard the liquid from the pot.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  8. Add the cream of mushroom soup, and about 1 1/2 cups of cheddar to the spaghetti. Toss lightly. Set aside.
  9. Remove the chicken from the bones and cut up.
  10. Add the chicken to the spaghetti with the season salt, black pepper, and the cayenne pepper.
  11. Add the 2 cups of reserved broth to the spaghetti and toss.
  12. Stir the mixture together well. Add more seasonings if desired.
  13. Pour the mixture into a large baking pan and top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. 
  14. Bake the chicken spaghetti for 35 to 45 minutes until bubbly.
