How about an amazing 5 ingredient roast chicken breast recipe. Simple, quick and so delicious.
Making a healthy, sit down family dinner does not have to be reserved for Sunday nights anymore. This chicken dinner which can be on the table in an hour works for any weeknight meal. It is sure to be a favourite.
So let’s start with the chicken, Or is it the egg?? Well that is a different discussion all together. Back to the chicken…
About 15 years ago, just around the time that I was making a huge health change in the way our family ate, I happened to come upon a local chicken farmer who raised his chickens in a natural, healthy way. I decided to try it, and our family was hooked.
I have a confession to make. I actually HATE Halloween.
I hate dressing up.
I hate having all that temptation (read: bite size chocolate bars I end up eating 20 of) in the house.
I hate anything scary, or gruesome.
I’m not a fan of fake blood
AND, I’m super not into how on Halloween everyone seems to think they can turn any profession into something “sexy.” ie. Sexy nurse, sexy cop, sexy prison inmate… REALLY??
But, as a mom I have embraced the Halloween season with as much joy as I could muster for my kids. I decorate the house with fun – not scary Halloween decor and make cute bags of goodies for the dwindling numbers of trick or treaters.
On a side note, one thing I DO love about Halloween is seeing all the littles dressed up – parents following closely behind, carrying pillow cases filled with candy.
Our kids are older now – with two in university, they do their parties and costumes on their own and trick or treating with mom and dad has long gone by the wayside. Many of our Halloween traditions have faded away, but one remains. Every year I make Halloween BAT WINGS as our meal.
As much as I love summer. Autumn brings change and we all know change is good! We are lucky to live in a climate that brings us the beauty of the four seasons.
It seems as soon as September 1st hits and the kids are back to school, we start to see a change in the weather. A briskness to our mornings, the days get shorter (which I do not like) and the leaves start to change to the autumn hues of yellow, red and orange.
Sounds like the perfect time to bring out the fall inspired Butternut Squash and Apple soup. So yummy and the color, reminds me of fall.
