Whoa, you guys! Fall is ON full swing! I mean, it made quite the appearance around here. I’m talking ONE very cold appearance. It was 81-degrees on Monday and 49-degrees only 24 hours later.

Bright blue skies, crisp air, and temperatures so cold that I spent most of the day with my socks rolled up and my hands around my beloved coffee mug.

It’s quite evident that Pina Colada Floats are soooo last July.

On the bright side, hot dinners that look this comforting and taste THIS good is why I put up with Fall-weather.

Then you drag yourself over to the fridge to find some chicken legs, chicken breasts, chicken thighs, whole chicken… talk about inventory.

Obviously, and I don’t know about you, but I might have a little crush on chicken. Especially when said chicken swims around spinach and artichokes.

This is some good ole baked chicken dinner right here. This is the kind of dinner I suggest you eat this day, or sometime real soon, right before you attack those Chocolate Mousse Brownies. ‘Cause when you eat a healthy dose of spinach, chicken and artichokes for dinner, you leave plenty of room to inhale a good ole brownie.
