I found another great recipe for chicken nuggets.  I think I like this recipe even better than the last.  The Asiago cheese gives these nuggets a subtle hint of extra “pow” flavor.  Thank you to How Sweet It Is for this great recipe.

Tonights dinner was heavenly.  I mean, savor every bite, sad when it’s over type of thing.

I tried a new recipe, Chicken Roman with Lemon Butter Sauce from the blog, How Sweet It Is.  I just discovered this blog and am already excited to go back and find other recipes.
