Sunday Dinner

Printart 4

Sunday Dinner didn’t hit the table this week until 8:30 PM, because my husband Barry and I spent most of Sunday; painting, cleaning chandeliers, and preparing the house for winter and the holiday season. We were so enthralled in our projects, that we completly lost track of the time. With a growling belly, I scanned the pantry and refrigerator, and pulled items I had on hand to create this recipe. The combination of flavors were amazing! My creation of Pasta with grilled chicken, oven-dried tomatoes and Roman Artichoke was not only a whimsical creation, but a quick and easy  meal to prepare, that was hardy enough to satisfy my starving husband.
