A Change of Dinner Plans

As I was driving to work today, I was so excited about receiving my second shipment from Plated this afternoon.  I planned my evening in my head.

Thankfully it only took me a moment to remember it was Saturday. I…… Continue reading Saturday Morning


Culinary Crisis and a Turkey Chili Recipe!

Over the weekend, the sous chef and I ran into a serious culinary crisis. We both decided that we could not stand the thought of eating chicken. The idea made him sick, and I wasn’t much better. The idea of eating cereal for dinner was much more appetizing than grilling the organic chicken breast we…… Continue reading Culinary Crisis and a Turkey Chili Recipe!
