The flavor of the day seems to be chipotle for me so I made another concoction for dinner today!

My husband isn't one to rave about anything...unless it is REALLY good. When I saw him take his first bite he looked up at me with an "I'm in love" look and it wasn't directed at me! When I asked him how it was he replied, "NUMMY!"

That is as good as something gets for him...and it was unbelievably AWESOME. As I took my last bite I told him, "Your wife is a good cook!"

He agreed.
