dinner on the whim…

So tonight I decided to make something that was both delicious and good for us!
In a pan, I started by browning up some organic chicken sausage that I whipped from the casing… once slightly browned they were put to the side [until they were needed for later] and then with oils from the sausage, a quick speed date of minced garlic and chopped sun dried tomatoes occurred! It quickly turned out that these frisky guys were looking for an extra addition to their evening… so in went some buttery, plump cannellini beans! As soon as everyone got to know each other, a dash of crisp white wine helped loosen everyone up and let their hair down… an addition of a little chicken stock came to the party and everyone simmered away…
While the trio was melding together, some lonely whole wheat penne took a bath in some super salty boiling water, and then got a wink from the threesome to join them for some tossing around! After a quick stir, some parsley joined in and offered up its fresh self and dinner was served…
Creamy, buttery, vibrant and luxuriously flavorful… this was the perfect meal for any night of the week!

last years dinner is this new years day delight…

After preparing food for a New Years Eve party last night, I realized there was quite a bit of extra remaining… So what else would be for dinner tonight then some fantastic leftovers…
Chicken rollatini and stuffed artichokes were just one of the vast edibles that made our New Years Eve bright, while also illuminating the culinary path for tonight’s dinner!
The chicken rollatini were succulent, lightly breaded cylinders, stuffed full of amazing flavors. The beautiful, pointy artichokes were buttery and tender, with each leaf begging to be cleaned gently…
With each sensual bite, we were yet again transported back to that spectacular evening we shared last night!
