Back at it

Thanks for all of your awesome comments yesterday morning <3 Your kind words and Liv’s sweet little face helped to make it an awesome Friday.

We had lunch with Kyle and the Pilot,ย came back home to hang out -Liv was having a teething day so we laid low for the afternoon-

went for a family walk,


and even cooked a legit dinner (legit meaning waffles, eggs, cereal and Halloween candy, which is what we had the other night).

Stuffed chicken

This meal was brought to my brain by Kristen, who suggested using the blueberry goat cheese to stuff chicken. I thought it would be an incredible sweet and savory combo, so I made a blueberry sauce (on medium-low heat with a little coconut sugar to bring out the natural sweetness),

Blueberry sauce

stuffed two enormous organic chicken breasts with blueberry goat cheese and fresh basil leaves,

Chicken ingredients

seasoned with salt, pepper and drizzled with olive oil,

then baked for 25 minutes at 375*.

When the chicken was cooked, I drizzled it with blueberry sauce, added a sprig of basil and served it with sautรฉed zucchini (on the burnt side, just how we like it).

Liv also had some carrot-apple-beet puree with her dinnerโ€ฆ I think she was a fan.

Eating dinner

Afterwards, I did what all the crazy party animals do: went to Target with a goal to only buy the things on my list. A sweater with a Boston Terrier on it almost foiled my plans, but I managed to do it.

Then, we had cookies.

My twin friends make some of the best cookies I’ve ever had. When I saw this recipe and had all the ingredients on hand, I thought they’d be the perfect complement to our movie night. The Pilot loved them, too!

  16. Glad you’re feeling better, Gina. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Please tell us about Coconut Sugar if you have the time. Does it taste like coconut? Can you use it one to one in place of sugar?

  17. Twilight was amazing!! Did you go to see it yet? I’m so sad the series is over. That picture of Livi eating dinner is too precious.

  18. OH mama, that chicken looks and sounds incredible! Consider it pinned ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. I’m thinking you could do with the blueberry goat cheese what a lot of recipes would do calling for cranberries right now. It also seems like it would pair well with chipotle.

  20. Yum those cookies look good! Haha what is with target and people buying way more than they planned ๐Ÿ˜›

  21. That chicken sounds amazing! I love pairing fruity flavours with goat cheese.

  22. Twilight is amazing…
