What could possibly be  better than having an outrageously good looking boyfriend?  Having an outrageously good lookin boyfriend who likes to cook, of course 😉  I don’t call him Man Candy for nothin’ (scroll to the bottom of this page for the story behind the nickname).

Anytime the BF offers to cook, I’m MORE than happy to oblige.  Lucky for me, he offered to cook us dinner Tuesday night 😀

On the menu for the evening was some Italian crusted chicken over penne with a spicy red sauce.  First up, the chicken breasts were covered with the contents of an Italian dressing packet along with some garlic powder and onion powder:


Making sure every inch of the chicken was covered with Italian goodness: DSCF3671

Then he popped the chickies into a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes–until the chicken was cooked through and was nice and golden brown:


Slicin’ up the goods:


Jarrod is the most precise chopper I’ve ever known.


Chicken + spicy red sauce (with onions of course) + whole wheat penne + parmesan = HEAVEN.  Oh and don’t forget the garlic breadstick!


We also cooked up some Jalapeno Popper spread for movie snackin’


We L-O-V-E dips.  LOVE them I say.  (We used fat free sour cream in place of the mayo on the original recipe)


As I’m typing this post, I am actually on the airplane to New Orleans (my bday present from the MC).  Expect LOTS of delicious food pictures, and more than our fair share of Italian feasts over the next few days 🙂 🙂 🙂
