Lovely Days

This has been such a pretty month so far! 
I think I've read a few more books this year than usual.  I used to be such a reader.  My mom couldn't get me to take my "nose out of a book" for love nor money. I don't know when or why I slowed it down.  I do know I swapped over from general reading and pursued self help books for a long time... Then I had such a time with cataracts and horrendous vision but the surgery was a great success for that.  
Anyway... I'm back!  If I had a few more spots in this house with a  comfy chair, I'd read a lot more!  
I guess making junk journals is more my addiction, but I have read six books in 3 months... 
please tell me in the comments what books you're enjoying! I would love to read them. 
Here's what's for dinner! 

Air Fryer Balsamic Chicken

  • ¼ cup Balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Dried rosemary leaves
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Feshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Mustard
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon
  • 2 Whole chicken breasts boneless, and skinless
  • Cooking Spray


  • In a small bowl combine the vinegar, honey, mustard, lemon, olive oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken pieces to a large resealable bag and pour the marinate over it, and seal the bag, and refrigerade for at least 2 hours.
  • Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper or cooking spray. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the parchment. Spritz with a little bit of the leftover marinade.
  • Cook at 375ºF / 190ºC for 10 minutes. Flip the chicken, spritz it with marinade, and cook for 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF / 75ºC and the chicken is no longer pink inside. Let sit for 5 minutes then cut the chicken breasts into thick slices, and serve with baked potato wedges or a delicious green salad.
Sounds pretty good.  I'll let you know how we like it!
