Another Quick and Easy Dinner


This week has been a time of getting back into the normal routine groove. With that came baseball practice tonight. Since that required that I get My Oldest to the field by 6 p.m. and My Youngest had to tag along, dinner was a bit of an after-thought. We ended up hanging around for most of the practice even though My Husband was there helping coach. Once we got around to leaving, I had to start thinking about what to do with the chicken I had thawing in the fridge.


Penzey's to the rescue! As I mentioned before, I bought a few different spice blends when I was shopping. Tonight, I chose to use the Tuscan Sunset blend on grilled chicken. I can see using this blend in tomato sauce or any tomato based soup. You could also sprinkle over grilled veggies along with a bit of EVOO. Sounds good to me! Since my salad fixin's were finished off last night, I figured I'd make a bit of whole wheat pasta. Now, plain pasta is ok most of the time but tonight I wanted to add a bit of flavor to it. Penzey's Pasta Sprinkle added just enough to make the pasta more interesting. Even my Youngest liked it and he prefers his pasta completely plain.

Overall, it was a simple dinner but tasty. I am enjoying these new spices and will have more reviews of them to share over the weekend.

Your dish looks great! I've been wanting to get some Penzey's for a while. The spice blends seem like such a simple, delicious way to jazz up a meal.

I love Penzey's! My father always ordered from them, so when I started my own kitchen, I followed suit!
As a matter of fact, I just placed an order with them yesterday!
I would love to visit their store.....

I am lucky to have a Penzey's store about 15 minutes away. I have bought several spices & spices mixes from them, but have yet to use any! I always forget about them sitting in my cabinet, being neglected. Thanks for the inspiration to use my Penzey's!
