Bob's Favorite & the Bread of Life
Bob's favorite at Cafe Jordano (a little local place in Lakewood, Colorado that has won tons of top Italian food awards) is the greatest meal on the planet! I love it so much (apparently Bob does too) that I have zero desire to try anything else on the menu.
The Lord has provided many opportunities for us to share Christ with the workers there. One time while we were with some friends at Cafe Jordano, my husband, who loves to get into spiritual discussions (and tries to break the sound barriers) asked our waitress a question leading into a spiritual conversation. She was eager to talk. We spent over an hour talking with her.
Somewhere in our conversation she mentioned she didn't have a Bible but really wanted one. So, I gave her the little one I kept in my purse. Not long after that another waitress came up to our table and asked if we had another Bible for her! Turns out she has really been seeking, trying to find out more about God.
I was blown away. Sometimes it's so easy to just go through life without realizing people around us are separated from God but really want to know Him. It is so easy to believe the lie that people have it all together and don't really want to hear the gospel.
Austin and I and our friends went to Cafe Jordano to feast on incredible Italian food, but turns out the waitress' wanted to feast on God's Word.
My friend Gloria, who also loves this restaurant pretty much figured out the recipe to Bob's favorite. Enjoy!
Yummy Bob's Favorite

1 jar alfredo sauce, divided

1/2 c. shredded mozerella (or more if you like your's really cheesy)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown both sides of chicken in skillet with just a little oil. Put chicken in a 11x13 pan and cover with half of the alfredo sauce. Bake for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, cook aspargus for 4 minutes in boiling, salted water. Drain. When chicken is done, turn chicken over and place asparagus on the top of it. Pour the remaining alfredo sauce over the top and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
