It's been a very busy Summer...On Thursday Sister's husband, Mike turned 60. He was adamant that he didn't want to make a big deal of it so Talena took him on a short trip to Amelia Island. They returned home mid day on his birthday. Mother and I put together a surprise family dinner party that evening.
Not a very clear picture...but obviously Mike was pleased with his surprise.
Our big installation in Fayetteville is this week. We've been planning and shopping for 6 months. The window treatments were hung a couple of weeks ago. Fayetteville is 3 hours from Little Rock so we've not seen them yet. We have lists going everywhere. It will take Elite Movers the entire day on Monday to go all over town and load the things we've purchased. We will head out early Tuesday morning.
We'll be posting progress on Facebook through-out the week, and share more here later. Our client will be away while we put her entire house together. We're staying at the house and will work late into the night. Hoping to finish in 3 days. We can hardly wait for her to see it all.
On to Sunday Supper...
Doesn't that look divine? This recipe is from The Novice Chef. You will definitely want to check her blog out. Lot's of great recipes.
4 skinless chicken breasts
kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 large garlic cloves, minced
2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
10 large basil leaves, finely chopped
8 oz fresh buffalo mozzarella, sliced in 1/2 inch thick slices
balsamic vinegar, to taste
Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts and set aside.
In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add chicken, cover pan, and cook for about 10 minutes. Flip chicken breasts and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked throughly (or has reached an internal temp of 165°F).
While chicken is cooking, in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add tomatoes and continue sautéing until tomatoes skin starts to soften/wrinkle, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Set aside.
Once chicken has reached desired doneness, top the tops of each chicken breast with 2 slices of mozzarella. Pour tomato mixture on top. Cover pan with lid once more and let the mozzarella melt, about 1-2 minutes.
Lastly, drizzle with a splash of balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.
The table is all set...
It's your turn. Let's talk!
