Last week a girl friend of mine came over to see my apartment, hang out and catch up so we decided to have some appetizers and wine, and then I would make dinner for us. Well, we had plenty of appetizers and wine, but I didn’t make dinner until she left at 10pm!! Yikes. Now, I didn’t eat dinner that late, but instead packaged it up to bring to work the next day for lunch. I always have the best of intentions, but we had a little cheese, cracker, and fruit social at work and I managed to fill up completely on that, so when lunch rolled around, I had zero interest in eating. *Sigh* Now what do I do with 2+ servings of chicken, shells & cheese, and broccoli?
Well you see, I am not the only person I know that is in love with balsamic vinegar. My co-worker, Taitor Tot loves it to, so I offered up this meal (along with leftover Black Forest Cake) to her and her husband. Thankfully, she accepted and this food didn’t go to waste! I heard from her later that she and hubby loved the meal, and hubby especially loved the cake! I don’t get to cook meals for other people that often anymore, so it was nice to be able to share this with friends. It’s a light meal, that is quick and easy to prepare, so it’s great for weeknights!!
