The temperature lately has been extremely chilly! Chris and I are constantly wearing our sweaters and jackets inside the house with the heater on. Yep, it’s that cold! Some nights, the temperature even dropped below freezing. We lost a few of our hibiscus plants because of it (I think! We don’t exactly have green thumbs). I’m hoping our citrus trees will survive through the winter.

Braised Chicken in Sun-Dried Tomato Cream
I came across this recipe on Epicurious while looking for an easy and quick chicken dinner. This was tasty and very easy to put together. The only thing I would do differently the next time I make this is dredge the chicken in some flour before putting it into the pan. I didn’t have basil, as the recipe called for and used whatever I had in the fridge. The mix of parsley, mint and tarragon paired nicely with the chicken and sun-dried tomatoes. If you’re looking for an easy chicken dinner, look no further!
Tomato Cucumber Dill Salad with Feta
It has been extremely hot in my house lately so I’ve been reluctant to turn anything on in the kitchen. I generally don’t care for salads because it leaves me hungry most of the time. But because of the weather, I made an exception. I paired this salad with a slice of Savory Ham Cheese and Olive Cake (recipe to come soon) and it was the perfect light meal for us. The cucumber and tomatoes combined tasted so refreshing that I’m beginning to have second thoughts about salads. Have stellar Tuesday!
Roasted Tomato Bruschetta
Yay, it’s summer! Kinda… We’ve been having some really weird weather lately. You think it should be sunny and warm but nope! It’s cloudy, it’s windy and it’s muggy —ick! Regardless, Chris made some Mojitos over the weekend in celebration of summer-ish. And when we drink, we like to nosh too.
I had a few fresh herbs on hand and some grape tomatoes and crusty bread sitting around. So I made Bruschetta. It was easy, quick to put together and delicious! Invite some friends over this weekend and make some cocktails and snack. Happy Hump Day!
I had some basil in the fridge that didn’t look like it’ll last another day so I decided to make some pesto with it. I like mine a more loose consistency. When it’s too thick, it looks unappetizing (in my opinion).
