Hey Hey Hey!!! It’s finally Friday and just little under 4 hours I will be headed to the house for the weekend! Thank goodness!!! It’s been such a long week and I’m dying to get it over with. This week has been super busy at work, thankfully it hasn’t been too bad today. Since it’s a little slow then I’m gonna catch up on a blog post that I’ve been trying to do all week. The past week I made a Chicken Pasta with Spinach and Tomatoes in a Parmesan Cream Sauce and my middle son told me that I was definitely going to have to make it again soon. I was really surprised that he enjoyed it so much, especially since I was just throwing stuff together to make a quick and easy meal.

But I gotta say, them quick and easy meals are usually the ones that everyone enjoys the most, other than the recipes that you can just throw in the crock pot and leave it all day to do its magic. I had my husband throw a roast in the crock pot yesterday morning for dinner last night, since goofball me forgot to set it out to thaw. Of course he didn’t think it turned out right cause he done it, but it was very good. Quit beating yourself up Justin! 🙂

Now you give him a grill or smoker, you better watch out cause anything he cooks up turns out amazing! I honestly think he would grill out every night if I would let him. 🙂 Heck I don’t mind one bit though, working as a team with him grilling all the meat up and me inside doing all the side dishes, it all works out great! Our dream is to have a food truck, one of these days it will happen!!!!

Okie dokie guys enough of all the chit chat, lets get to the recipe that I whipped up the other evening. Yes and its another, close to, 30 minute meals.
