Chicken Cacciatore

Cacciatore means "hunter" in Italian - Chicken alla Cacciatore means chicken cooked the hunters way, with peppers, onions, tomatoes, and wine.  Now:  I'd like for you all to envision me as Elmer Fudd, as I tip-toe to the refrigerator to "hunt" my vewwy, vewwy quiet!!  Just for the record, I DO have an Elmer Fudd winter hat.  

Chicken Cacciatore, a fast and easy recipe for dinner ~

Depending on the region of Italy, lends different variations on ingredients; red vs white wine, regional cured meats, etc.  I took 4 years of Italian in high school, the only things I remember are informal pleasantries (Ciao!  Va bene!  Non che male!), mild curses (A Fa@&*), and the regional foods of Italy.

Notch HATES THE BEACH.  He hates the sand, he hates the surf, he hates the is too much for this little dude to handle.  He's much happier kicking back on a sofa with me in my pj's for the day (he really DOES prefer me in my pj's to street clothes).

A Winter In Limbo (part 1)

Hello my bloggy friends.  It has been a while...I certainly haven't forgotten about you!  I swear!!  Much has changed since this past fall.  As mentioned in my last post (Smoky Mac N Cheese, anyone?), life has changed a bit......What was suppose to have been a 2 week vacation back home in New England, turned into a more permanent move.  This has left us in somewhat of a holding pattern; we haven't really determined what are next step will be.  

Here is a little of what we've been doing to pass the time...I have a lot of pics, so I'm breaking this into a two-part post.
