Tuscan Chicken and Beans recipe

Tuscan Chicken & Beans

I found this recipe on Taste of Home. I made it for dinner last night. It has such a great taste. We don't have rosemary, so I substituted oregano & basil.


4 servings


1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil), chopped
1 can (15-1/2 ounces) white kidney or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained


1. In a small bowl, combine the chicken, rosemary, salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken over medium heat until browned.
2. Stir in broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Add beans; heat through.

Yield: 4 servings.

Things I'm Loving Lately (Warm & Cozy)

Anyone who knows me, knows that I hate cold weather & I am always cold. So I'm all about warm & cozy. I've been buying more scarves & gloves. I got 2 new pairs of fingerless gloves & a regular pair of gloves. They are so cute. I decided to get rid of a few pairs that I had that were old & worn out.

I also really love eternity scarves. I never really got how to wear a regular scarf & they just end up annoying me. I think they look cool on other people. I might somehow pin all my regular scarves to make them look like eternity scarves & not hang. These are my 2 new scarves. I got the 1 on the left at American Eagle & the 1 on the right at Walmart. I wear them all day & even around the house. I wear the fingerless gloves around the house too.

I also love having candles lit once it starts getting darker earlier. I got this on Friday with a coupon. Bath & Body works was selling them for $8 & I had a coupon. I love the new jars with the cute pictures on them. I'm hoping to go back & get a few more candles before the season is over.

Volunteering~X-mas tree

Today was the 1st day that we had bad weather when I was walking the dogs. We are getting heavy rains & the parking lot & walkways were really icy. I was slipping & sliding & so were the dogs. The animal shelter put up an X-mas tree & people can buy an ornament & have their pet's photo put in it & then they display it outside. I felt bad because 1 of the ornaments fell & was on the ground. I almost climbed over the fence & picked it up & hung it up, but decided not to because of the heavy rain.

This is Koby, who I posted a photo of last week. I walked him last week & his sister Bella too.

Kobi brought his toy to me. It was so cute. I think it's a racoon. It really doesn't look like it from this view. I kept asking him what his baby's name was, but obviously he wasn't going to answer me. I wonder if they know so they can let the new owners know, when he gets adopted. He is a great dog & his sister too. I wish they could get adopted for the holidays.

This is a new girl this week named Leilany.

7 Years today that we have lived in New Hampshire

Time really does go fast. We moved from Massachusetts to NH, 7 years ago today. Tara was 4 months old. I was just telling her how the day we moved in, they were having the town tree lighting. Anthony told me that he had driven by it & saw the fire pit going & how he thought it seemed like a great community to live in. We usually go every year. Also the day that we moved in, I thought JoJo had gotten out from the doors being open. I was really upset & outside calling her, but we ended up finding her in Tara's room under her crib. I'm in MA a lot still, I volunteer at the animal shelter & go to the dentist there. My parents still ive there & Anthony works there. We are only about 10 minutes from MA.

Movie time

2 of our friends work for a realtor & they had a free movie event yesterday. We went to see "Penguins of Madagascar". They gave the kids gummy lolly pops & a box that kind of looked like a Happy meal box. The box had popcorn & gummies in it. They gave us free waters too. They did the theater over & they had these awesome comfy seats. We had never been to that theater before, but I'm sure we'll go there again.

Crazy girls.
