Out and about


Nick and I are having sort of a busy day so I actually don’t have a recipe for tonight’s dinner.  Instead, I’ll leave you with something I’ve made that everyone liked a lot.

We’re off to DC tomorrow so I won’t be cooking for a few days.  In the meantime, try some of the recipes posted and let me know what you think. 

Enjoy and until later…!
