We really can’t go wrong with a good pasta dish. This one needs a bit of a kick but it was pretty good.
I cooked the chicken with simple salt and pepper, with garlic powder. My son helped with that, as he likes to assist with the spices. Walker Dennis is also pretty great with mixing items, as well. He helped create the yogurt mixture, too. My wife doesn’t like mayonnaise, or egg nog for that matter, so I went with the yogurt option. I’m a huge fan of egg nog, buying a gallon of it from Costco, every payday. I’m on my second cycle of it and I’m loving it.
Again, we went with grated Parmesan cheese and not the shredded, I really need to make sure I create the grocery list when Parmesan is an ingredient. I wouldn’t imagine the consistency would be all that different but I imagine it is better to use shredded when the recipe calls for it. I imagine that the mixture would have been more soupy, if we used shredded as the grated cheese just sat on the chicken. So that effected the overall quality but I’m not a hundred percent sure that the type of cheese was the culprit there. Maybe I should have made it with two cups of yogurt.
Instead of a 9×13 dish, I placed the chicken mixture in a 8×8 as the note states it could become a bit soupy and I wanted the chicken to marinate in the soup. Instead, the mixture never really went below the top of the chicken base.
I served the chicken mixture over pasta and it was pretty good. Some bites were better than others but we do enjoy Parmesan cheese so we were happy with that.
I also almost forgot to put the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese on top of the mixture, so I had to quickly take that out of the oven and put it back in.

With it being the weekend before Halloween, we were running around Helena, attending all sorts of Halloween events, which was pretty fun. So not much television watching but we got in a few shows.
Our next episode of The Office is Season Six’s Secret Santa.
Sunday night, we knocked out the last two episodes of Arrow’s fifth season. Which was pretty grand and so we had to watch the first episode of season six. Our plan is to watch the next two (probably three, now) episodes and stay current with it. Now that I know Arrow is the lowest watched of the CW shows –
(Not the website I first read that statistic but I couldn’t find that one.)
There is this odd mind space of wanting the show to get better. Though I really liked the last season, it could have been two or three episodes shorter but that finale really brought it.
The show is dark but not unwatchable. The main villain started to ham it up, towards the end, but I can see where people gave up on it.
We’re current with Riverdale, which is still pretty good.
I’m on episode 80 of Living Between Wednesdays and they reviewed the second episode of the first season. So it is all coming together. Which is a fun time aspect of catching up with that show, as they near my present day. Dave and Rachelle joked about what season two will be, as it couldn’t be another murder mystery . . . and it totally is! What else could it be? Just pure teen melodrama? I could be cool with that.
I’m doing one episode of LBW and then one episode of Comic Book Queers, to try to get current with that podcast. My next episode is the fourth one. They are not that far behind, they are on episode 8, so I’m at the half way mark, so I’m listening to episodes that were released a month ago.
TMNT Legends just had a massive update, as they added a slew of characters and improvements. I still wish that, when farming for an item, that screen will show how many of the item I current have. That’ll be helpful, as well as having my current DNA number, on the individual character page. Maybe during the next update as I’m sure they are going to be hit by complaints and notices of glitches.
The only one I noticed was during the Super Shredder fight, when he has armor up (meaning he can get hit once, and not be hurt) the animation for the armor, is to his far right (our left) so I’m sure they will update that so the effect is actually around him. That fight has been brutal as my top characters are all stuck at level 45, until I improve them and Chapter Five Level 12’s end boss is a level 46 and he kicks my team’s butts. So I have to max out their moves, as it’ll take forever to get enough DNA to level each of them up, if I want to stand a chance. Now that the update has happened, there are level 50 villains and they pretty much murder my team. Super Shredder punishes all of those around Leonardo and then poor Leo dies a slow death.
So the update is fun but I’m so under-powered that it kills some of my enjoyment as I know it will take months to achieve the success I want and I’m not sure I want to grind that much. But I did finally unlock Raphael, so that’s pretty cool. So I have to level him up to 45, which should take some time as I’ve finally hit that point where I don’t have as much Mutagen, which I need to level up characters and moves. I also now need to spend the time to get Donatello’s DNA so that my three proper turtles can all be level 45 (or on the road to 45).

Have a happy and safe Halloween! Walker Dennis is going as a pirate. Hopefully, the weather holds up and he doesn’t have to wear his jacket too much, while being outside.
