Brown Sugar Spaghetti Sauce

If I'm not making Mom's Spaghetti Sauce, then I usually use some bottled version of tomato and basil or marinara sauce. (If anyone has a good recipe for these, PLEASE let me know!) When I use jarred sauce, I add in just a touch of brown sugar when I heat it on the stove. SO good! Try it - add just a touch at a time until it's just right to you. You just want a little taste of sweetness, so go slow. Enjoy!

Can-Can Chicken

Another kid fave (including me when I was growing up!) that is very easy, very fast, and inexpensive.

2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 large can cooked chicken (do not drain)
1 1/3 c Minute Rice
Chow Mein noodles

Combine soup, chicken, rice, and 1 soup can full of water in a large saucepan. Heat to boiling. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook 7 minutes. Serve over Chow Mein noodles.

Yummy. :)
