The chicken looks and sounds yummy! I will have to try your slow cooking Thursday ideas. Thursday is the day I am gone all day playing with the baby. I need some help when I get home with the
meal! Thanks for sharing.

Your mostaccioli looks FABULOUS!!! About how many do you think that would serve? We are having a party on Sunday and serving Italian...I'd love to add this to the menu, but need to know how much more to add. We're going to have 10 adults and 6 kids.

I posted my most favorite dish this week! :-)
