PHEW! It has been one of those weeks. How about for you? Josh is healing, but we found out his ankle is actually broken versus just sprained. He has been a trooper and I have been a pretty sweet nurse, if I do say so myself. A few exciting things in this post: 1. A pasta bake, 2. Blogger Meet-up at Mosaic, 3. Giveaway winner.
Since I knew I would be attending a blogger meet-up, I wanted to make sure my patient still had a delicious meal for dinner.
- I baked up a piece of chicken in some Italian spices
- The chicken was then sliced thin (almost shredded) and mixed with cooked pasta, pasta sauce, hot sauce, ricotta, parmesan cheese and artichoke pieces
- On top of the mixture, I placed some additional grated parmesan and Italian bread crumbs
- The mix was baked at 375 for 20 minutes and then placed under the broiler for ~2 minutes
While Josh ate this bake, I headed to Mosaic (one of Lindsay’s favorite restaurants) to meet up with Lindsay, Amelia, Blair, Christina, Katie & Kerr. I love the atmosphere at Mosaic and all of the fresh, local food options.
Today, I went with the Village Summer Salad special (without the chicken):
Me & Lindsay:
And, Amelia brought us AMAZING treats!Granola, cookies & grown up smores. As I’ve mentioned before, Amelia is a trained pastry chef and everything she makes seems to be delicious Josh and I already sampled the Smores….oh my goodness- so good!:
