Chicken in a Hurry

I saw this recipe posted on Facebook and I decided to try it with 4 lbs of chicken breasts.  The name alone caught my eye - easy recipes, with common ingredients, always get my attention!

There are only two of us but I plan on making chicken soup with all the leftovers!

A few fall table settings....

This table was set for a simple dinner for two in the dining room:

I stacked pumpkin plates from Hobby Lobby on top of MacKenzie-Childs Royal Checked enamel dishes on blue chargers from the Dollar Tree:

Dinner was simply a spinach salad and a bow tie pasta bake.

The coordinating blue buffalo checked pumpkin and the blue stemware were from the Dollar Tree.

In this table setting for two I used my MacKenzie-Childs flutes edged ceramic dishes and topped them with Salad dishes from Walmart!

I adore the Black Tie flatware and Tango goblets:

A simple but elegant setting for a dinner of garden salad, roasted chicken and mashed potatoes!

Here are some old photos of past fall tables:

Fresh Peach Galette

What is a Galette?

A Galette is a rustic dessert tart made with fruit and a pastry crust. Instead of being baked in a pie plate or tart pan, a galette has a free-form crust that’s folded up over the filling.  The galette needs to cool a bit so the juices thicken, but it’s best either warm or room temperature.

This idea was a lot easier and quicker than setting up a charcuterie board:
