A Nap with Pesto

Baby Tyler isn’t sleeping through the night. By the time I fall asleep he’s ready for a bottle. Then 2-3 hours later he’s ready for more. He’s been restless since 5:45 this morning which equals a tired mommy. I so need a nap!

Thank goodness I didn’t have to fuss over my breakfast. Overnight oats were waiting for me this morning. Oats, milk, chia seeds, banana, walnuts, and cacao powder topped with fresh juicy sliced cherries.

Oops! How’d he get in there?

I can’t believe that summer is almost over. I spent most of it in the shade and in doors with Tyler. Thank goodness because this was not a good bathing suit season for me. I’m not sure if I’m ready for winter yet. I love fall though. My a/c unit could use a vacation. Opening the windows would be lovely.

What are some of the things you look forward to in the fall?

The pantry is running low on ingredients so I had to concoct a meal with what’s left. I came up with Pesto Baked Chicken and Sweet Potato Fries.

I used 2 chicken breasts and cut them into strips. Then coated the bottom of the pan with pesto sauce. I use this brand…

Then I put the chicken on top of the pesto

and then coated the top of the strips with more green stuff. I mean pesto.

Covered it with foil… Like this…

What? I like taking pictures. 😉
And baked at 350 for 22 minutes.
The chicken wasn’t completely cooked yet so I added fresh mozzarella cheese and baked for another 10 minutes.

Flavorful + Easy + Cheap = A Happy Mom = Me

Guess I better go make my grocery list.
See you tomorrow!
