So our next dinner is right around the corner and I am still as excited to see you all as I was the first dinner that we hosted.

My neighbor sent me an email today titled "Most Delicious Dinner Recipe", she invited me over the night she made it but I had a previous engagement. It looked delicious and judging from her email it was. So of course I had to share it with you all.

6 medium shallots
4 medium parsnips - peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup apricot preserves
2 T whole grain mustard
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cumin
8 medium chicken thighs ( they say skin on, but I didn't)
kosher salt and ground pepper
1/2 cup pitted prunes - roughly chopped ( I used 1 cup)
1/2 cup dried apricots ,roughly chopped ( I used 1 cup)
1 T apple cider vinegar
