Alright, so the past few entries have been short and a bit angry. It's time for something a bit more upbeat. Well, at least it's upbeat for me. Food!

I love food. I love cooking. I would love to be a chef. The best job ever. You get to do all the fun cooking stuff but have other people to do all the prep work and cleaning. Heaven. :)
Anyways, I made dinner a few nights ago. Chicken in a balsamic-caper pan sauce, whole wheat thin spaghetti, and mixed veggies (corn, baby carrots, and asparagus. best.mix.ever.)

Of course, I had to add cheese to my pasta. Who can eat pasta without cheese? I had cooked an extra chicken breast and we had leftover pasta at the end of the night as well and I was so excited that I could have it for lunch the next day. Then Mike headed down to go eat it! What? Wait! That's mine! I ended up needing to bribe him with ice cream before he would leave me the leftovers. (bribery is an often used tactic in out house. second only to bargaining.)

This has become one of our go to meals. It's pretty easy and the sauce is really easy to change up. And it's soooo tasty.

What is your go to meal? Or your favorite meal? Or do you absolutely hate to cook? Share people. Share.

Edited to add: Here's the link to the recipe. Who knew that you could get the entire BHG cookbook online? http://tinyurl.com/6d25mh Enjoy!

That looks so good Kate!! You should post the recipe for the chicken...

Let's see -- go to meal... Lately, the easiest has been the BLT, but I also like to do a lot of different pasta things -- although the husband NEEDS to have meat, so I don't do them as much anymore... I've also been grilling a lot since we got a new grill!

Favorite thing to cook -- goodness... I used to make awesome calzones (but again, no meat in them so I haven't made in a long time -- used to make the dough and everything).

Well, I love food in general -- it would be hard to narrow it down in a comment!

YUM! (And that's a lot coming from me these days considering my aversion to food.)
