A New Chicken Recipe:)

It snowed. Oh, and iced. What in the world is up with the weather?? Just four days ago, we weren't just dreaming about spring...we were living it. The weather was gorgeous. And, today, right back to winter - it is COLD! - and right back to dreaming!!

The painter was here all day yesterday - can't wait to show off the color - but was unable to finish so he needs to come back this morning. I was fine with that but, have to admit, was disappointed that I would miss my Tuesday morning Bible study. Ah, the weather cancelled Bible study, which I know throws a monkey wrench into the schedule but - for me - I didn't miss anything:)

Just trying to stay positive, folks.

Not sure how we ended up with two house projects going on back to back. Both had been planned and/or in the works for weeks and then just came together at the same time. What fun, though. Choosing the right color for the bedroom was much more of a challenge than I imagined. They used to sell little bottles of samples, but, now, a sample is a pint and is $5.99! And, oh yeah, we ended up buying five of those things! Put two or three stripes on the wall only to figure out....that color just was not the one. And, then, what do you do with all those pints?? The best part - we ended up choosing a color that we never even sampled! That's just how we roll. But we love it! The color is perfect - any guesses?

What would be the perfect bedroom color for you?? I love all your comments:) and appreciate the suggestions - and all the kind words! - on the kitchen from yesterday's post! We really are enjoying the kitchen. In fact, I tried a new recipe last night...and it was super yummy. Totally the new kitchen:) Thought I would share it today. Its a keeper.

Parmesan Chicken Roll-ups

1 pound, skinless chicken breasts tenderloins
1 clove garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Italian dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
paprika

Wash and drain chicken. In small bowl, combine garlic, lemon juice and melted margarine. In separate bowl, combine cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Dip chicken in margarine; then roll in crumb mixture to coat. Roll chicken up and secure with toothpick. Place in shallow dish that has been spritzed with oil. Sprinkle chicken with a little paprika to garnish. Cover with aluminum foil; bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake 10-20 minutes longer...checking for doneness.

  2. Mmmm, chicken sounds good! Hang in there. Home projects can be so hard! At least for me! I thrive on routine, and calm.

  3. I just love home projects and reformations...mine or someone else's, haha...How wonderful to have a couple going. I think if I would have had more time (and less on my plate) when we were moving in here I would have spent more time chosing different colors etc. As it was I painted the entire house a beautiful shade of warm taupe type sand...with white baseboards and doors etc. I wish now I had painted my bedroom a soft pale olive green. I love that color and just seems so peaceful to have in a bedroom. My curiosity is up...what DID you chose? Have a wonderful day my friend. HUGS Oh, and the chicken sounds wonderful.. yum....

  5. I am not a fan of painting...I REALLY don't like the clean-up! Of course, I do love how it can transform a room, so I can't wait to see what you've done. You will post pictures, I hope! I'm a fan of deep, warm neutrals, so that's what I'd choose, if I could. I'm going to try your recipe for dinner tonight! I was just telling Abby last night that I get so tired of making the same things for us all the time when Chris is on the road. This recipe will liven things up, I think!
