At least once a week we make it a point to cook dinner together. This is a way for us to spend time with each other while creating new meals to keep us (and Lauren’s husband) happy. While we feel like it is easy to continue perfecting our favorite recipes (like this or this), we love to try new things. In fact, one of our favorite things to do is to come up with a meal on the fly based on ingredients we have lying around the refrigerator.

For this delicious dinner, we decided to stop by our local Whole Foods and get some fresh brussels sprouts. They were a nice addition to the rest of the ingredients already found in the fridge. 
We roasted the brussels sprouts with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. 

Chicken breasts were marinated with whatever we had on hand: balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and minced garlic. We added sliced grape tomatoes and fresh parsley that were leftover from previous meals and were sure to not last much longer. 

As Tami has been in Israel for the past two weeks, we have missed each other and these special times we get together to do even the most routine of things (like cooking dinner). We look forward to reuniting in a few days and Tami sharing the experiences of her trip over a nice home cooked meal that we will create Side by Side.
