143.4...Chicken Breasts in Caper-Cream Sauce

It had been awhile since I’ve made a new recipe but it was worth the wait on Thursday night. Chicken Breasts in Caper-Cream Sauce was a huge it in our house! I doubled the sauce in the original recipe and I’m so glad I did. You will thank me!

I met some friends for breakfast at Snooze on Thursday morning after I took the kids to school. I ordered an egg white omelet with cheddar cheese, spinach and caramelized onions. On the side: sliced tomatoes and  wheat toast. It was fantastic.

I went to an appointment, then the gym for some boring treadmill time since I had missed my Sculpt class.

Since I ate a later breakfast, I wasn’t super hungry for lunch. I found half a bag of trail mix in my pantry so that was lunch.

Dinner really was epic. The Chicken Breasts in Caper-Cream Sauce went perfectly with some frozen rice that I found in the freezer. I also served some carrots with it. Perfect dinner.

Lunch was with Alicia at Love Boat Sushi.

I picked up the kids from school, got them ready then took them to cotillion. In between each of theirs, we went to Rancho Santa Fe Bistro for dinner. I haven’t had any lunch at this place but came upon a salad I really liked last night:

 Quinoa, Chicken & Avocado Salad (mixed spring greens, quinoa, carrots, tomato, avocado, & house vinaigrette). I would order it again!

It’s been a wonderful, lazy morning over here and I’m thoroughly enjoying it! Happy Saturday! 

Any fun weekend plans?
