Roasted Root Veggie Herbed Stuffing (gf)

I'm having one of those moments right now, where I want caffeine... more caffeine... but I know better than to give in.
One of those times where I've had enough, but somehow I'm still tired, and somehow I still think caffeine is the answer.  Unfortunately, that would be the opposite of the answer - if I want this vicious cycle to end, that is.
You have one rough night of sleep, overcaffeinate the next day, and you're toast for the rest of the week.  Or maybe that's just me and my low tolerance?
Anyway someone help me out, here.  Poke me or something.  Get me a giant green tea with soy.  Wait, scratch that - I just said no caffeine right?
You know what, I can get through this.  It's almost Thanksgiving week, and for me this means traveling to Pittsburgh to see my husband's family.  Which means vacation.  Which, of course, means lots of sleep.  This is very exciting.

Cashew-Pecan Crusted Chicken

Cashew-Pecan Crusted Chicken
