chicken pasta recipe

Here is a great chicken pasta recipe that we had in Knotts yesterday. YUM It makes enough for an army but the recipe can easily be reduced.

Pasta Salad

1 pkg. bow-tie pasta (12 oz.)
1 pkg. spiral pasta (12 oz.)
1 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits
2 cans sliced water chestnuts - chopped
2 c. chopped celery
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup red grapes, sliced
1 can cashews
1 pkg. or craisins
1 lg. can mandarin oranges (I used two small cans)
6 large chicken breasts, cooked and cubed. (I used 3 cans Costco chicken)

1 bottle Kraft coleslaw dressing mixed with
1 cup mayonnaise.

Cook the pasta, drain. Drain all of the canned items. Mix together in a giant Tupperware bowl with dressing. Chill, Serve.

Springville Quilt Show

I forgot to mention that my quilt, "In the Beginning" won a Teachers choice ribbon at the Home Machine Quilting Show last April. Encouraged, I entered it in the Springville Quilt show at the Springville Museum of Art.
See That Blue Ribbon? It's for MY QUILT!!!!!!!! I got a ribbon and $100.00 for Best Machine quilting and Embellishment. I of course will share that with Kim Peterson who machine quilted it for me.

I just had to take a picture of it hanging so beautifully at the museum, and remind you all of what it looks like. It will be hanging there until September 2, in case you want to go see it. There are some absolutely incredible quilts there.
I am also helping hand quilt a quilt for President Monson. His daughter asked Sharon Wright to make a quilt for her parents. Sharon is letting people help with the quilting. That is a really cool thing. Maybe I will get extra blessings for that.
