After going almost the entire week last week without cooking dinner, I’d say I’m already ahead of the game this week…home cooked dinner two nights in a row, baby!
It makes such a difference when softball games don’t consume our evenings. Last week was a tough one schedule-wise – 5 games in 4 days between the two of us – so that made it pretty difficult to plan much more than a sandwich for dinner…even though they’re still pretty tasty too.
Tonight’s dinner definitely topped a sandwich though.
We cooked up some extra chicken last night, so we both finished up the rest of it this evening. Jay had requested some sort of cheesy, melty, grilled chicken wrap so I prepared a wrap for him while I put together a non-wrap version of my own (for no reason other than I just wasn’t feelin’ a wrap tonight).
My melted mound of chicken there was inspired by one of my favorite sandwiches at Lanie’s Café, the Chicken Florentine. I heated up the chicken (I promise, it’s under there!) and topped it with some fresh spinach, sautéed onions, homemade Russian dressing, and a slice of provolone cheese.
It was so decadently delicious and, honestly, not all that bad on the nutrition front either…despite the fact that that beautiful slice of provolone cheese is saying otherwise.
Along with my Chicken Florentine, I also made another new attempt tonight at using up some more zucchini…
Check it out…Zucchini Latkes!
I had no idea what to expect with these but ohmygodtheyareawesome.
Hubby liked ‘em too, so they got a solid four thumbs up in this household. Recipe headed your way tomorrow…
But for now, I’m about to go squeeze in a little reading of the book before The Bachelorette starts.
Hope everyone is having a fantastic Monday!
Question for the Evening:
Anyone else watching The Bachelorette tonight? What do ya think? Who is she gonna go for??
