Apricot Glazed Chicken Skewers

So I came home from work today thinking “What am I going to fix for dinner”? I had taken out some chicken breasts but had no intention of doing the typical season and roast deal. I wanted something a little more exciting so I decided on chicken skewers; or kabobs as some might call them. I have to say that these skewers turned out amazing!  So when you’re seeking something other than the “same old chicken”, give this a try. It’s got zing, is full of flavor and is just the kind of meal that’s needed on a cold day.

Sausage & Potato Soup

This is a great dish that I’ve been making for years.  It’s one of those soups that when paired with a hunk of buttered bread, can be made into a meal.  It is creamy, incredibly flavorful and can be served informally or in your favorite china if you’re having an elegant dinner gathering.  Enjoy!
