Chicken In Creamy Chive Sauce

I have seen this recipe floating around the blogging world for a little while and had it book marked. I came across this version from A Seasoned Greeting and thought it looked delicious. White wine, cream and pasta? Yes please! I thought the flavors of this dish were delicious. The wine worked really well with the slightly sharp chive flavor. I used a gluten free penne pasta, but you could serve this over any type of pasta or rice. I also added a bit of white pepper to the mix because Ron and I love to pepper just about anything.

A perfect weeknight meal!

Things are still going well at home. Kellen is adjusting to life in the outside world really well. We had a great night last night- Kellen slept from 10:30 to 4:15!  In my book that is huge, and am hoping it continues. We are transitioning into cloth diapers, but he is between the newborn and regular sized adjustable diapers. Currently, I am using Grovia, SwaddleBees and BumGenius newborn diapers. I really like the Bumgenius and SwaddleBee, but the Grovia leak like crazy on our guy. When I take off the diaper after only a short time it is drenched....The others seem to last longer and are not as wet...Hopefully we can move to the other diapers next week because we mainly have BumGenius in our supply.  Does anyone else cloth diaper?
