SuziCate is a new blog to me – its weird how you can stumble accross a blog and think “how did I not find it sooner?!” She is a wonderful writer and I am so glad I found her.
I need to write about 10 things that make me happy – that’s easy!
- Kissing my husband. Seriously, best kisser EVER! 😀
- Snuggling with my daughter when we watch a chick flick.
- Football season so my step-son Joe comes to the house!
- Hanging out with my Mom. 😀
- Cold beer on a summer day.
- The smell of the grill.
- The Irving Sandwich at Siegelman’s Deli.
- Tiny babies – that I get to hold and then hand back!
Breakfast yesterday was a simple egg white wrap with ham and Swiss Lorraine aka stinky cheese!
I had an extra baked potato in the fridge, so lunch was easy – broccoli cheddar stuffed potato with a giant salad on the side – I need to eat more veggies! The spicy bbq sauce makes this 😀
My friend and I did Jillian’s Fat Banish work out yesterday, but I was not feeling it – we skipped the circuits that were hard – and only did about 35 minutes of the 60 minute dvd. Later in the afternoon though, I could feel the sweat start to go down the back of my neck and sure enough, my blood sugar was 48!
Whoppers to the rescue! I had two of these bags, so six whoppers all together.
I had chicken breasts I needed to cook up, so I gave Tony three options for dinner: Chicken Parmesan, White Chicken Chili or Chicken Cordon Bleu. He chose the Chicken Cordon Bleu, but I don’t think he was prepared for the healthier version!
He remembers a deep fat fried version that when you cut into it, butter and cheese oozes out all over the place.
Mine was a bit different! First, I butterflied the chicken and pounded it thin. And yes, my meat tenderizor (sp?) is from Williams Sonoma, but Tony got it for me last year – I love it!
Then I grated Swiss cheese over the ham
Then I rolled the chicken in half, dipped it into an egg white and milk wash, then rolled it in Italian bread crumbs with added rosemary. I pan fried it with just 1 tsp. of canola oil and Pam.
I saw Rochelle’s (Aquired Taste) version of Cordon Bleu and liked her addition of peppers, so I added sauteed peppers to mine.
I only ate half of this piece, and maybe because the deep fryer was still on the counter, I made french fries on the side 😀
Spoiler Alert: Biggest Loser!
I fast forwarded a lot of the show last night, but I was glad that they left Michael on the show – being the biggest guy on campus, I am glad they sent his Mom home – and she has conquered her fear of water!
I have similar issues with water – and I think the when I did my triathlon in 2006, Tony was so happy to see me get out of the water!
Proud Momma Moment. Hannah just finished her first semester of her senior year – check out these grades!
I am completely kidding about the B- ! I would have killed for a B- in high school! 😀 So proud of you Hannah!
