This Roasted Corn with Charred Peppers and Feta could be one of my favorites of all time as far as side dishes go. And last week, when I invited my family over for dinner, they scarfed this dish too. I guess that means they agree.

Ben and I first had a similar dish at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Las Vegas a few years ago. We’ve been making this dish and loving it ever since.

I was inspired to make Chicken Fajita Grilled Cheese after going out with my family to a Mexican restaurant a few weeks ago. Chicken Fajitas are always what I order.

Chicken Fajita Grilled Cheese was born!

How was your weekend? I hope it was great. We finally caught a break and got some nice weather. It was nearly 60 degrees both Saturday and Sunday which made for some outdoor time and sunbathing. Just kidding about the sunbathing part, but it really was so nice and warm. It felt great to get some vitamin D.

I have to admit, I kind of got my hopes up that Spring weather was right around the corner.  And while the calendar indicates that the first day of Spring and my birthday(!!!) are just a few weeks away, Mother Nature has other plans for us this week in the form of….more snow(!!!) and another Polar Vortex. Oh boy!
