Hello foodie friends! It feels like I havent blogged forever. My hubby and I were on vacation last week in California. We had some much needed alone time hanging out at the beach and acting like kids in Disneyland. We had such a great time.. but I must say it feels so good to be home. I missed my kids like CRAZY! I honestly can say that I will never step foot in Disneyland without them again. Seeing all the people there with their own kids just made me wish ours were there with us the entire time! We have already started planning our next trip there with them next Christmas. I can't wait!
As for this delicious pasta, it really is amazing. I just love Chicken Piccata. It is one of my favorite ways to eat chicken. When I saw this pasta version on Food.com I decided it would be a great dish to make Kale for Fathers Day. So that's exactly what I did. Not only did he love it, the whole family did too! Capers MAKE this dish, so please dont be afraid of them. They are a delicious herb that make chicken piccata amazing. You can usually find them in the pickle aisle in your grocery store.
