The balsamic chicken sounds delicious. And I always forget about breakfast for dinner. Thanks for the inspiration and have a great week! Now on to plan mine…

I’m anxiously awaiting your applesauce recipe. I have quite a few cooking apples to use up and I’m waiting for your easy and yummy recipe. Please post soon! Thanks.

I haven’t posted one. But I highly recommend this one from Steph!
