I’m trying something new you guys! Today on the blog it’s Baked Spinach Provolone Chicken Breasts! This meal comes together so easy and cooks in about 30 minutes making it perfect for a busy night after work. Are you drooling yet?! 🙂
I gotta tell you, I’ve never really tried stuffing meat before. I’ve ordered stuff like this in restaurants, because it seems so fancy, and it’s always so delicious! So I figured, hey why not go outside my bubble a little and try this recipe myself!
Also, I’ve been missing my date nights with Cary. He works on a cruise ship as a musician and he’s been gone for like 4 months now, ugh! The first 3 months I was doing ok, just keeping busy with work, creating new recipes for you guys, trying out a new Yoga class, taking some Salsa lessons, and driving my son around to various activities. I figure if I stay busy enough it’ll take my mind off of Cary being gone. Well it only works temporarily. I think this week I hit a wall. Just feeling blah and missing him like crazy.
So I decided to make a meal that felt like a ‘date night’ meal I could have at home. Except my meal was shared with my son, who by the way makes a great date. I do love our mother and son dinner dates! 🙂
This was really simple to make too! So if you’re looking to have a ‘date night’ dinner at home, or just a great meal with your family, give this a try!
