Longing for Warmer Weather

I've hit a bit of a block....I haven't been motivated to write...It's the cold. The darkness. It's the getting up early, going to work, and by the time I'm home it's dark, cold, and all I want to do is crawl in bed and sleep.
I've been craving one of my favorite spring/summer meals lately. I remember the first time I ever made it was the night we bought our pop-up camper. We were so excited. I cooked the Greek chicken pasta and we ate dinner in our new " vacation home." hehehe....Little did I know at that time that 2 weeks later I would find out I was pregnant with our sweet baby Easton. We went on one trip in that pop-up. It was a fun trip-filled with great memories. Shortly after we found out our big news though we sold the pop-up in a bit of a panicked response of the life changing events that were soon going to take place.

Tonight I made the Greek chicken pasta and I thought I would share it with you.

1 or so pounds of chicken breast
Greek Seasoning
Orzo pasta cooked and drained
Juice of one lemon, 1T of olive oil, 1 T of Dijon mustard, & 4 T of honey
1 cucumber chopped
1 can of olives
Some cherry tomatoes. I personally don't like tomatoes so I put just enough to suit my husband
chopped red onion-half a cup maybe....
Crumbled feta cheese

Season the chicken with greek seasoning. Saute in a non-stick pan until done. Slice thin.
In a bowl, combine lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, and honey.
Mix together cooked chicken, pasta, veggies, and cheese. Toss with lemon dressing.
It is delicious and a favorite in our household. I hope you enjoy!



  1. That sounds delicious!

    And, I'm right with you on the warm weather. Of course, I would settle for just the sun right now. It's been so gray here lately!

  2. The days are cold...but getting warmer. The days are short...but getting longer.

  3. Now that sounds like my kind of meal. Looks delish! thanks for sharing!

  5. I can`t wait for spring either it has been to long of a winter. This meal looks really good. I will try it sometime. to make.Thanks for sharing.

  6. Mmmm... I love food with a greek flair. I am ready for some warmer weather too - we got up to about 50 degrees this afternoon and I took the kids to the park. I wish it would stay, but it's supposed to rain tomorrow :(

  7. that looks absolutely delicious and a wonderful macro. I am with you on the weather, it is so cold and miserable here in Kent, can't be long now before spring has a little look in.
