Peach Balsamic Basil Chicken

I haven’t been on here as much as I wanted to, I apologize! I am just trying to get everything in line with this baby coming in 4 weeks. The time went by so quickly and I am not organized or ready yet. If you know me, I am a bit OCD and need things in place as much as they can be! I know the baby won’t be in the nursery for a few months, but I still want it organzied so I don’t have to worry about it along with everything that comes with the little guy! We repainted the nursery and took the tape off too late and paint came off with it! Talk about anxiety!!! I should have kept it the color it was before! So my anxiety is a bit up, but thankful for friends that are going to help us finish it and for my hypnobabies meditations I try to do every night.

I have been mentally preparing myself for giving birth. All things that are unknown make me nervous and this is totally new to me. Every body and experience is different, so I am cautious of what advice I get from others. I haven’t read much as I don’t want to get too anxious but reading enough that I can be prepared. My birth plan is completed and I am getting my disability papers in line. But first I need to finish my thank you cards from my shower (which was in June). Anyone else so bad at thank you cards? They are sitting on my table looking at me! [As you can see I am all over the place!]

With peach season coming to an end, you better get on this recipe! My husband at first had mixed emotions about peaches with chicken… until he tried it! The sweetness of the peaches with the balsamic vinegar match together, especially with the honey in it. On the side we added sauteed Jersey veggies to make this a Jersey Fresh dish!
