Hi there! Today we have an oldie but a goodie made new! For sheet pan week, we wanted to share a few fast and easy ideas to pull dinner off on busy nights. One of our favorites is open-faced sandwiches like this Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich. These come together with minimal prep and has the potential to make a lot for large families or groups. In fact, this recipe originally was inspired by my Aunt Cammy. A few years ago, Des and I were in charge of hosting a baby shower for our sister-in-law, . . .
It was one of those evenings where I was begging to go out to dinner and my husband instead was all "oh I'll go mix a little somethin' somethin' up for you baby," ok, it probably wasn't JUST like that...but I'm always up going out and he is always so good about staying in and saving money. I came down and he had mixed up this little dish, it was pretty much all that we had had in the kitchen...some pesto, spinach we keep around for all those green smoothies and almost expired whipping cream. . . .
As unprofessional as the photo below may be, this is my all time favorite picture. I wish you could have heard the squeal and seen the excitement and translated the two year old language of "Tay!! it's rweady! Take pit-chure of my tar mom!" Tay Pit-chure!!!! (insert squeal!!) but, if you are looking for seriousness....here ya go. I have cravings regardless of being pregnant or not, being pregnant only intensifies my cravings....and gives me a pretty valid excuse to give in to those . . .
I've gotta admit, I've been watching and noticing caprese salads since I became obsessed with them...oh probably about 9 months ago. And I got allll confused. I see caprese salads, with lettuce, caprese salad with chicken and lettuce, caprese salad with several different kinds of ingredients. I kind of felt silly, I thought a caprese salad was just three main ingredients and a few spices. But here are some food experts posting all over the place, claiming their fancy dish to be a caprese salad. . . .
