What's for dinner?

Baby robins nesting in the Weigela bush.

I think I'll try this recipe and use chicken breasts instead. Bourbon is another one of those bottles of alcohol that I have and don't know what to do with! I bought it to make a sweet potato pie - Jeff Smith's recipe calls for 1/4 cup of the stuff. Delicious recipe - I'll dig it out and post it close to Thanksgiving.

I will have to figure out something for the breadcrumbs and flour, though. I've been gluten free for about a month to see if this dermatitis, rashy thing I have clears up; I actually do see improvement already.

Head on over to Elise's place for cooking directions and check out some of her other delicious offerings!
