The rainy weather we have been having lately definitely calls for a hot bowl of chili. Last night I made a fabulous Chicken Chili Verde. It’s a nice change of pace from your average chili!

So hearty and delicious! 

Wednesday night I was racing to get out the door for my son’s basketball game. I quickly reheated the Chicken with Mustard Mascarpone Marsala Sauce and green beans for dinner.

My daughter’s birthday party is tomorrow so we have a bunch of family coming into town. It’s going to be a busy weekend!

Any fun weekend plans?
