What’s For Dinner? Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Some days I just love every single minute of planning, preparing, and cooking up a meal, and some days . . . well . . .  I just don’t.  In the midst of the craziness around here during the last few weeks of school, just getting any meal eaten together as a family at our house is a tiny miracle, and so far this week we’ve dined on cereal, leftover Mother’s Day food, and pb&js. (And I write a blog that every so often talks about the importance of menu planning . . . yikes!)

So today when I glanced around my fridge and checked out the Publix ad, I knew I had to come up with something a slight step above leftovers or the drive thru.  (And thank goodness, we had just enough dinner as a family before baseball practice . . . woohoo!) This recipe hit the spot, and put dinner on the table without too much mess, all at a bargain meal price.  So, if your family needs a real meal too (that’s not prepared for you by someone at the drive thru window . . .), roll up your sleeves and get to work.  (I promise, we can do this.  Really!) 🙂
