7 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the dish 

  1# Any pasta (I used penne pasta)

  2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  1 small onion, finely chopped
  3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (or 5 chicken breasts)
  2 heaping tablespoons all-purpose flour
  2 cloves garlic, minced
  1 cup hot sauce (preferably Frank's)
  2 teaspoons dry mustard
  2 1/2 cups half-and-half or a little more as needed
  8 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
  2/3 cup sour cream
  1 pound yellow sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 3 1/2 cups)
  1/2 cup cheddar
  1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add the pasta and cook until al dente, about seven minutes. Drain.
   Meanwhile, melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook until soft, about five minutes. Stir in the chicken and garlic and cook two minutes, then add 1/2 cup hot sauce and simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 more minute.
    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and mustard with a wooden spoon until smooth. Whisk in the half-and-half, then add the remaining 1/4 cup hot sauce and stir until thick, about two minutes. Whisk in the cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, then whisk in the sour cream until smooth.

   Spread half of the macaroni in the prepared baking dish,

 then top with the chicken mixture 

and the remaining macaroni. 

Pour the cheese sauce evenly on top.

  Put the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted. Stir in the panko,  cheese and parsley. Sprinkle over the macaroni

 and bake until bubbly, thirty to forty minutes. Let rest ten minutes before serving.

Jesus says, "Please don't forget Me." I'm with you all the time and some days you don't even recognize the fact that I've got your back! When you go through tough times, I hear from you. 

When you're scared and  lonely, I know it! 

Hey, but in the good times AND in the happy times, in the just plain old nice and easy days.

 Don't forget to say THANK YOU. I didn't forget you that day on Calvary. Really, I didn't. You were on my mind and my heart all the way.

 So, Please don't forget Me. Love me with all of your heart, your soul and your mind. I will never never leave you and I will never no never forsake you.

In The Name Of The Lord

So what are you doing to prepare for this Holy 

Week? Or does it even matter it all. It 

matters to me. This week is what our 

faith is based on. 

Our Savior who came 

from heaven with a divine plan... knew 

what He was up against this week, yet 

He didn't run.. He didn't leave. He stayed.

 He waited. 

Today marks the day that He 

came into Jerusalem on a donkey ( the 

way that tradition says that kings would 

ride into a city). People waited for hours.

 Laid their clothing in the streets with 

palm branches to make way for the king

. They were looking for a king, a leader,a 

Messiah to deliver them. Would this be 

the man? Behold the man, the Lord 


Think about it this week. Ponder and

 meditate on what He did for YOU. What

 He did for all mankind. The choice is left

with us. Whom will you choose? Blessed 

is He who comes in the name of the Lord!

 Hosanna to God in the highest!!!!!! 

Happy Palm Sunday.

From a song by Sandi Patti "In The Name Of The Lord."

Crowds have lined the narrow street
To see this man from Galilee
Just a carpenter some say, leading fools astray
Yet many kneel to give Him praise

And in His eyes, they glimpse the power
That sees the heart of all men
And He knows His Father's mind
He speaks His Father's words
For He comes in the name of the Lord

There is strength in the name of the Lord
There is power in the name of the Lord
There is hope in the name of the Lord
Blessed is He, who comes in the name of the Lord
