Love the file foler travel album idea! Kind of reminds me of a project I did for my daughter a while back. It included had mini file folders for her journaling about all the different activities she was involved in during the summer.

Love chicken spaghetti! Don't know if it's the same recipe as Pioneer Woman's but it's a big hit in this house.
