I'm Not Chicken...

...to try new recipes! Haha, I know, bad joke...I was trying to come up with a clever title and that one made me laugh! Anyway, on Saturday night we (my mom and me) were brainstorming for dinner in honer of my sisters boyfriend being in town (well actually, you're special Matt, but we needed an occasion to have an exciting meal!). My mom was planning on a cranberry chicken dish with rice but I was rallying for something else. I wasn't sure what "something else" was, but I thought I'd start browsing the internet before we rushed off to the store.


Im a sucker for Better Homes and Gardens, as I love my happy plaid cookbook, so I went to their site, and found a link for "Quick and Easy Chicken Dinners." We went for the adventure of Maple Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potatoes, followed with a dessert of strawberry and peach sorbet and oatmeal raisin cookies! I must say, I really enjoyed it, and the company we got to eat it with! The other exciting element was that we got to eat it of the Lennox Pine China. That always makes events feel special to me!

I can vouch for its yumminess, the great Pine plates, but the best part was sharing it with friends/family.
