Entree: Italian-Seasoned Roast Chicken. A wonderfully seasoned and juicy chicken breast. Katie wasn’t able to find bone-in chicken breasts so she had to adjust the baking time a little bit and it turned out perfect. And she thinks that she forgot the fennel so if you don’t have fennel laying about, it’s perfectly okay.
Side Dishes: Pancetta Green Beans and Goat Cheese and Chive Smashed Potatoes. These are two really easy weeknight dishes that you can whip up in 20 minutes. I love how the balsamic vinegar give the green beans a bit of spark (and anything with bacon makes things taste better). The goat cheese was not overpowering and the chives give the mashed potatoes a fresh taste. These are good, light summer side dishes.
Dessert: PB and Dark Chocolate Hummus. I’m a foodie, I’m up to trying anything but when I heard about this, I hesitated. Really? Chocolate and chickpeas? I was not very optimistic about it. But I’m glad I tried it because it surprised me. Bob equates it to diet peanut butter, the flavors almost taste like peanut butter, but it’s not bad. The first taste was odd, but then I tried it again. Before I knew it, I was just dipping my graham crackers in with gusto. If you are adventurous, you must try this recipe, it’ll definitely pleasantly surprise you. Just a tip, make sure you purchase chocolate graham crackers to go along with it, it tastes much better with them.
