It seems like we all have a story when it comes to breast cancer. There’s usually someone in your family or someone who you know who was diagnosed with breast cancer.
For me, it was my grandma. I have so many fond memories of going to her house and eating dinners & desserts that she would cook! As she got older, she was no longer able to fix us the goodies that I remember her for and she started needing more and more care.
I was a teenager at the time that she came to live with our family so we could take care of her. We didn’t realize that she had cancer at the time. But, when we took her to one of her doctor’s appointments, we quickly learned that she had breast cancer. She would need a double mastectomy, help changing bandages and of course with the healing process.
I remember how we would all takes shifts sitting with her at the hospital after her double mastectomy. It was such a rough time of recovery for her and for us.
At the time, I just thought it was because she was getting old and that it wouldn’t ever happen to anyone else I knew, unless they were much, much older. Little did I know that as an adult, I’d start seeing it more and more. In fact, I can think of two more people that I know who have had mastectomies and I’m sure there’s a lot more that I don’t even know about.
What I was surprised to hear though was that one in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime and that every minute, somewhere in the world dies from breast cancer. There are more than 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States alone (6 million worldwide)!
If you’d like to get more involved in the fight for breast cancer, scroll to the end and I’ll share about upcoming races and fund raising opportunities, plus a chance to win some amazing prices! For now though, here’s a little more about this delicious recipe, in honor of my grandma and all the other women who have fought breast cancer!
Crock Pot Chicken & Noodles is the perfect dish for a chilly evening or busy weekend!
This recipe is also wonderful for leftovers, as it tends to taste even better the next day. Be sure to make plenty and have some extra lunches during the week!
CAN I USE A DIFFERENT TYPE OF PASTA?
We love the noodles that I use here, but you can use any type of short pasta. Penne or rotini would also work well! Feel free to use whatever you have on hand – it will still be delicious!
WHAT SHOULD I SERVE WITH CROCK POT CHICKEN & NOODLES?
This is a pretty substantial dish, so you won’t need to add much.
We like to cook mashed potatoes and serve it over the top of that. Of course, a quick salad or some steamed or roasted vegetables would work beautifully, too! Grab some bread to serve as a side, as well and your meal will be very well rounded!
WILL CROCK POT CHICKEN & NOODLES FREEZE WELL?
This is a recipe I would not recommend freezing, as pasta tends to get mushy when it is frozen, thawed, and reheated. However, this recipe keeps wonderfully in the refrigerator for a few days, and the flavor grows even deeper! You could even package it up for lunches or for a quick dinner later in the week.
