Today I started my 21-day no spend challenge which for me entails giving up my joy of eating out (gulp). What they say, to replace a bad habit, replace it with a new good one, so that finds the Foodie in me scouring the Internet and my collection of cookbooks to find “restaurant quality” recipes that I would actually enjoy eating at home.
My appetite came upon a chicken Italian dish that was layered with creamed spinach (my favorite), sun-dried tomatoes (another fave), and pepper jack cheese (bingo, you’re selected!) Lol! I put my spin on the recipe by adding triple Brie cheese to the spinach, searing the chicken before I baked it off (searing adds flavor, right), and putting pats of butter and a swirl of Chardonnay wine in bottom of pan to moisten the chicken as it baked. Then honey load on all the other good stuff and bake it off. My kitchen smelled so good as it was baking I was dancing every time I went to the oven to check on it. As a side dish, I prepared roasted asparagus, but a Cesar salad would be outstanding as well.
