Happy Birthday Brandon!

Brandon officially reached 31 years of age on August 11th. Shows you how far behind I am on my blogging! Whoops! We stayed low-key this year and just spent time with family. He, of course, got a load of Yankee gifts which he was very happy about!
Love you babe!

With homegrown tomatoes

This picture doesn't look like much, yet, but it turned into a fantastic meal that was really easy to make. Next time you see boneless, skinless chicken breasts on sale grab them for a simple, easy dinner.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Fresh basil pesto
Shredded Mozzarella cheese

To make:
Preheat oven to 400
Line cookie sheet with foil
In a bowl, toss chicken in the basil pesto until covered
Bake for 20-25 min.
Remove from oven, top with tomatoes slices and sprinkle with cheese
Return to oven, cook another 2-5 min.

(I paired this meal with some healthy whole wheat pasta drizzled with olive oil, basil and fresh garlic)

I think Brandon's exact words were, "Babe, where did you learn how to cook like this?!" Simple, easy recipe that impressed my husband, cooking mission accomplished!

That's right!

Its almost time! September 1st we put our 30 day notice in to an apartment that we have loved so much. However, it is time to move on and make the move to Orange County. I have been waiting for this day since April, the day when my commute will finally end! Can't wait to find our new home!
