Chicken with Olives on Linguine

Sis was out with fever and a BIG headache yesterday that I was left to take care of four kids {Ykaie and my nieces}. With all the playing and fighting and littering and the different food they want, I was so tired.

Now I know what the old woman who lived in a shoe felt like…LOL!

So I thought, I would reward myself with a yummy pasta dish today.

You know I’m not really fond of pasta with thick white sauces. This dish has a very creamy but thin sauce. Ykaie even liked it. She only likes oil-based sauces, remember? But  because of how thin the sauce is, she didn’t even recognize that this is not oil-based.

I have to make this for peanutbutter.
