Would You Like Some Cheese w/ That Whine


It seems the older I get the more I dislike going to the grocery store. True, the store I frequent out here in the country is not the greatest in the world but still. I really lost patience at the store today. I think there should be rules of the road in the grocery stores, just like on the highway. Stay to the right please with your carts. Do not park your cart crosswise in the aisle and then totally ignore anyone trying to pass through. Chit chatting with your neighbor is fine but please move your carts out of the aisles. And please managers, don't stack promotional boxes in the aisles. It's hard enough to get by the chit chatter's carts as well as stacks of boxes. I saw one lady knock a large juice bottle off the shelf onto the floor and not bother to pick it up. She did look at it for a minute as if thinking, "Should I pick it up or not". Apparently not was the answer. And my checkout clerk....never a smile, never a "hi", nada, nothing. I even helped load the groceries in those pesky plastic bags because I guess they were short of help. Didn't get a thank you for that either. Okay, now that I am through with my whine for the day thought you might enjoy this recipe. That's why I was at the grocery store....to get the items for this wonderful cool autumn weather dish. This makes a lot and freezes beautifully.

Chicken Spaghetti

1 fryer/boiled and chopped up (I just use chicken breast)
3/4 stick margarine
1 small can English peas
1 small can black ripe olives (sliced)
chopped onion
2 cans Rotel tomatoes (mild)
1 pound velvetta cheese
1 small can mushrooms (stems and pieces)(can use fresh)
1 small can pimento
1 12 oz. pkg. spaghetti

Cook chicken and save broth. Chop meat. Saute onion in margarine. Add rotel tomatoes, peas, pimento, olives and mushrooms. Add the velveeta and simmer until melted. Add chicken and set a side. Cook spaghetti in chicken broth. Use just enough broth to cover the spaghetti noodles. Do not drain. Add the cooked spaghetti to the chicken mixture and stir. Place in casserole dish, sprinkle with paprika and bake @ 350 until bubbly. Umm...Umm good.

Hi Lynn,
So glad that you found my blog today. Thanks for the nice comments.
I can't believe you were saying that. My husband and I were talking about that the other day.
People seem to be getting more rude. They don't move out of your way. They pretend they don't see you. I always move for people.
Love your recipe. I may have to try that one.
Visit me again soon,
Rosemary

I love Rotel tomatoes. And Velveeta, well gee who doesn't love it?? Sounds delicious.

I can relate about the grocery store. And some shelves are just too darn high! But, having worked in one for 2 years right out of high school, I'm a firm believer that everyone should be forced to work in one for one week out of their lives.

Love,
Julie

Also speaking of rude, have you ever noticed how if you say excuse me when walking in front of some one,or by them, how they don't even acknowledge..?!
Your recipe sounds delicious...I will have to try that one!

Oh Lynn, This sounds so good, I have to try it. I just love making casseroles with the cooler weather. I like to do casseroles more than just meat or something premade, I think its because of all the ingredients that go into it, it's creative, like Art and Scrapbooking,lol :)

Thank You for your kind comments at my blog, I would be so honored to have you link me :)

I loved your rant! I feel the same way also...I also tell my Hubby that the grocery store needs traffic lights to tell people with their carts when to go, when to stop and when to yield!! LOL Well...I guess if thats all we have to complain about we are doing pretty good!
Blessings!

Ohh Lynn, that looks deelicious!!!! Yummy, I will be trying that one!

Your grocery store sounds just like ours!! My goodness. I dont think people have a clue or any manners anymore! When I go get groceries, I am in there to get what I need and get out! Not stand in the middle of the grocery aisle and talk!!! My hubby gets so MAD in the store I can hardly go with him, lol! He has told a lot of people off!

Love ya,
Amy

Hi Lynn! I love your recipe and can assure you it will be on my list for next week..I'm having the normal "fend for yourself" dinners this week and probably the weekend too! lol.. My hubby is very understanding, I have a ton of photo's to do for my new site.UGH!

I am so happy to hear you will be meeting Roxie shortly! You lucky duck! She sure is a sweetie! Where do you live? Just asking, because it would be great to have a meet and greet with both you & Roxie somewhere in between some day!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting~

Now... get your cart out of my way, your blocking the chocolate bars!! lol.. psssst.. I know what you mean, I love the ladies on their cell phones that don't even realize they are in a grocery store. They need overstuffed chairs and latte's in stores nowadays! Everyone seems to want to gab instead of shop! lol..

Enjoy your weekend~

I promise i understand. I think it is my age. All these things never bothered me before. when my cart wheel hangs on one of the displays I wanna pull the whole mess done.The part I hate most is when I carry my mom in her wheel chair and there is no way to get around. I say just hold on mom we are about to push alot of mess around lol.AD YES I love cheese with my Whine.

Jennifer Froh said...

Wow! That looks SOOOO yummy!!!!!!
I might just have to try it :)

Roxie said...

Lynn, I love new recipes and this one is getting written down for sure. Oh, the pics speak for themselves, MMMMM.

Deborah said...

What an interesting recipe! Sounds yummy!

I find that the store employees are getting ruder. Used to be they were there to help. Now it seems I'm always having to get out of their way. I guess they have the 'right of way' pushing their racks and carts around ... one nearly ran me over today - not even an "excuse me"!

Hi! I stumbled over here this morning....saw the yummy dish and since I was hungry and desperatly needed to grocery shop anyway...I printed out the recipe. Made it tonight and OH.MY.GOODNESS.!!!! It was terrific! The family loved it and now I will be putting this into my rotation! I've never made a meal that I saw on a blog before, but this looked so yummy I had to try it! Thanks for posting it! Had lots left over for lunches this week!

Hi! I stumbled over here Sunday Morning and saw the recipe...I've never actually written a recipe down from a blog, but this looked too yum to pass up. I made it last night and oh my goodness....delicious! Lots left over for lunches this week too! Thanks for sharing it!

Zoey said...

I work in a hotel and let me tell you, we have more rude customers than you would believe.

I think it's just people in general today...too many presures, time constraints, etc.

Anyway, I wanted to say thanks for posting this recipe. I have copied it and am planning to try it soon. It looks delicious.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment.

Merry Christmas!
