grilled chicken with spinach and melted mozzarella

Hello happy people!

I hope your day finds you in good spirits.  Good days should be cherished and reflected upon; and then acted upon to make a string of good days.

This meal was so easy to make and tasted wonderful. In my book,  tasty + easy = victory! wpid-2015-06-11-17.47.37.jpg.jpeg
