The first snowfall of the season is here! It was some flurries, but enough to cover the ground and make you shiver, so that counts!
My kitten's 1st time ever seeing/experiencing snow...he actually did not mind it!
For dinner, this called for a nice warm dish to serve. Baked Chicken & Broccoli. My boyfriend made this (mostly from him experimenting) which turned out wonderful. He is such a natural at adding ingredients and going by what he thinks will taste right. He sure is good at it. He used fresh broccoli and cheese smothered on top which melted into the chicken. It was fantastic and leaves you full. This also makes wonderful leftovers! Preparation took only 15-20 minutes and the baking time is 45 minutes. So very easy and quick. This is a perfect meal for a flurry of a night!
