Bacon, Wine & Sweet Onion Chicken

weeknight dinner

Man, what a week I have had! For those of you that follow me on social media you may have seen that someone switched computers with me at LAX going through security. Basically, my worst nightmare. I am not scandalous these days so there isn’t much on there that I would be embarrassed for anyone to see…maybe a breastfeeding photo? In which case, oh well! Sorry buddy! I did however have tons of blog content, photos of Ryan and documents that I need…so fingers crossed!

I also just returned home from a whirlwind trip to NYC where I filmed my second appearance on Beat Bobby Flay and I had such a blast. I can’t tell you any details of the show but man, that guy is talented! Nothing phased him. Truly, so fun to watch him cook.

Being that it is a weekday I figured I would post a really delicious weeknight dinner…something simple but really yummy and something that was comforting…especially after my computer debacle. I think I deserve something warm and cozy….
