Angel Hair Pasta & Chicken Bowl

We're back!  Our trip was great!  There are so many great memories to look back on!  So glad we were able to take our kiddo's and let them see where their Grandma grew up!

And....we got to eat at Hillbilly Hot Dogs!!  We ordered the Single Wide Burger (5 pounds of burger) and boy was it awesome!  Looked fantastic & tasted fantastic as well!  Also, loved the fried macaroni and cheese wedges.  I tell ya, they can fry anything! (Go to the end of the post if you'd like to see the hubby and son Rhett with the Single Wide!)

So anyway, we know we promised some Budget Dinners, and we're here to deliver.  And this is a good one!
