My mom and I went to Costco the other day and I brought home a rotisserie chicken and some gnocchi. Now I could stand in my kitchen and scarf down my fair share of rotisserie chicken...I love it that much. But I refrained that day. I threw a bunch of stuff into a pot along with the chicken and gnocchi and ended up with THIS! Big smiles and happy tummies!
