Hey everybody, I'm back!

With chicken, but we'll get to that in a moment.

How's life?  Is it finally Spring where you are yet?  We are starting to turn the corner here and I won't lie when I say that makes my heart super happy.

With Spring comes me clearing all my winter memories from my brain to make room for items a bit brighter.  Sunshine {obviously}, ball games {oh, so many} and lighter food {my thighs appreciate that}.

What's been going on here?

The kids have a little less than two months left of school before summer, which is giving me ALL THE FEELINGS, both good and bad.  We've still had some sickness here with my girls {ear infections and pink eye, for the love}, which has me super thankful for good health insurance.  I'm starting to think about my garden, which will probably need some rearranging this year {good for the soil + my strawberry bed was pulled last year}.

I could go on and on.

I've also been enjoying coffee dates with a string of friends.  I've found that taking the time to meet up with them pretty much melts the stress away!  If you've been wanting to meet a friend, even for just an hour, do it.  I have a few different groups I regularly call upon {and trust me, we reschedule a lot due to KIDS}, but we eventually make it work.

Recently I've been buying a TON of chicken at the store {been a bit obsessed with chicken salad}.  Plus we've been making what we like to call "Dad's Famous Chicken" dipped in my homemade ranch, but after that there still seems to be chicken left.

So....I made this Oven Baked Hawaiian Chicken.

I love, love, love a great thin crust Hawaiian pizza any day of the week.  Especially when they chop the ham and pineapple up into little bite sizes pieces {like my favorite hometown joint}.  I figured I love these toppings on pizza, why not put them on chicken?

I prepped this dish over the weekend in the morning and stuck it in the fridge {sans cheese} and just had to bake off later that night.  Super simple and everyone LOVED it.

Just a tad sweet from the pineapple and enough saltiness from the ham.  And...I added smoked gouda cheese. Have you had gouda cheese?  It melts like a dream.  I also love it added to my homemade Instant Pot Mac-n-Cheese in place of some of the cheddar, in case you want to try it there too.  It makes everything so creamy.

This meal is also a nice lower carb, high protein dinner.  If you've been reading the past month I've been trying to watch my carb intake a bit.

Some days are good.  Some days are bad.  Some days you may see me out in public looking like a crazy woman who think she needs a breadstick.  It's okay.  I'll be fine.

Speaking of seeing me out in public...if you see me, say hi! A couple weeks back I was across the river in Illinois for our son's baseball game and a woman came up to me to compliment me on my blog.  She apologized, thinking she was bothering me....no way!  I love to meet you guys and interact.  Never walk away without a greeting!

Alright, who is trying this fun, new dish?

It will probably be in our meal rotation once a month.  It's easy and tasty...and well, you just can't be that.
