You must try the Cajun Chicken Pasta from the Pioneer Woman. Seriously, I think I may just cook recipes from her blog for the rest of our lives. Two for two. We loved this one even more than the Chicken Tortilla Soup (if that is even possible). I ate it for something like 4 meals in a row (not for breakfast, that meal is pretty predictable...whole wheat Eggo waffles. Every day. Good for you? Probably not, but there is only about 1/8 of a teaspoon of syrup on it and I hate thinking for the first 30 minutes of my day).
Sidetracked, again. Give it a go. It is even better the 2nd and 3rd day.

The phrase "living the life of Riley" was commonly used among Irish soldiery during WWI. The first known citation of the phrase used in context was a letter written by Private Walter J. Kennedy and published in The Syracuse Herald on June 29, 1918. The piece was entitled "Great Life, Writes Soldier at Camp":
"This is surely one great life. We call it the life of Riley. We are having fine eats, are in great detachment and the experience one gets is fine."
