I can’t believe I completely missed it, but I did. I missed my 1 year blogiversary by 7 days. And I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for an entire year!
A year of sharing myself, my family, my passions. A year of letting you all into my little world. A year of changes. A whole year. I still can’t believe it.
We were actually in Chelan at our condo when I wrote my first blog post. I had thought about starting a blog for all of about a week. Huebie thought it would be a great idea so I shared some thoughts on starting a blog, and a recipe. That’s why I originally started this blog; to share my love of baking and expand my cooking skills. I never thought it would turn into more until I decided to change the name. I wanted to blog about more than just food. I wanted to be able to share all my loves with you. Food, family, our home, health and fitness, and just general….stuff. A Touch of Grace better represents me.
I’ve learned so much, met some amazing women and have really enjoyed having something I can call my own. And although I wish I had more time to spend over here on the ole’ blog, fine tuning my layout, searching for more opportunities to collaborate with folks and perfecting my photo editing skills, I love the time I do get to take out of my busy day to read others’ blogs, answer comments and search for new great blogs to read.
So I just want to say thank you. Thank you for all the support you’ve given me over this last year. The kind words, comments and emails.
So I thought since I started this blog with a recipe, it would be fitting to share a recipe to celebrate my one year blogiversary.
* 1 lb. chicken breasts (or 2 whole breasts) cubed
* 1 16 oz. box rigatoni pasta
* 1 green pepper, diced
* 1 orange pepper, diced
* 1 tablespoon minced garlic
* Alfredo sauce. I use this recipe (sorry, no source found).
* Cook pasts until al dente. Drain and set aside.
* In a separate skillet, cook cubed chicken until fully cooked
* Add in peppers and garlic and saute about 3 minutes.
* Add pasta and mix.
* Add alfredo sauce and stir.
And that’s it! Super simple and quick. We had dinner ready in 20 minutes.
