Sleep deprived, re-catching cold, babies feeling “yucky”, house needing scouring, gifts needing making…Be back Monday-Enjoy your weekend!
I made the best Dijon Chicken last night! I used a recipe I had tried before, but just tweaked it a bit. This would ordinarily serve the four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) easily with leftovers, but there were no leftovers to be had.Print
- 2–3 T of butter or Olive oil
- 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (or 7–8 boneless skinless tenders)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 heaping Tablespoon of Dijon mustard
- 1/2 c of sour cream
- 1 T soysauce
- 3/4 c of milk
- In a large saute pan, heat 3T butter or 2-3T of olive oil.
- Place either 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, or 7-8 boneless skinless tenders into pan. Make sure to coat both sides with oil/butter, and season with salt and pepper.
- Cover, and simmer/cook on low for 15-20 minutes.
- Remove chicken from pan, check for doneness, shred/cut and set aside.
- Keeping the heat low, add Dijon mustard, sour cream, soysauce, and milk.
- Whisk together in pan until thickened, add chicken back in to pan, and allow to heat up again. Serve over noodles or rice.
This was so quick and easy – definitely one for the regular menu rotation!!
So, I was thinking I could get a lot done this weekend-but we had an unwelcome, unwanted, uninvited guest this weekend…CROUP.
So much for that idea.
But before the seige, I made a couple of bags for my best friends’ daughter’s 5th Birthday (Happy Day K&K!!!)-pics tomorrow or wednesday-camera batteries went out. Purple and pink and oh-so-girly!
I have a bunch of stuff on my to-do list, and it seems like the holidays have come wayy too fast once again. I am going to post before and afters of my crafting/sewing area, work on many aprons, make lots of bags (ooh! imagine this-the red bag below, but big enough for a laptop!Or a treo!), and make myself some “girly” pads. Seriously! They’re so much more comfy than disposable, absorb well, and I can’t seem to tolerate “internal” protection anymore…So why not make pretty things for your girly bits too? Here is a site with a lot more info.
I also got a little bag of goodies from my friend Dawn friday-one of them was a lip plumper by Too Faced- I had read about it on A Girl Must Shop. It’s called Lip Injection Extreme, and it really does work! My lips looked so much fuller, and it claims to have a long term effect with frequent use. If you can get by the odd sunburned feeling, which does go away after a few minutes, it does exactly what it says! As a lover of Lip Venom, I have to admit that the Lip Injection works a lot better.
Also in my goodie bag were samples of lots of perfumes. Included was Chocolovers (from the same company that makes Pink Sugar, my current favorite), Betsy Johnson, Nanette Lepore, and Flowerbomb by Viktor Rolf. I loved all of them , but I have to say the Betsy Johnson had a slight edge. It reminded me of my all-time favorite Angel (which people either seem to love or hate intensely), but not nearly as overwhelming. The Flowerbomb is really nice too-I would actually buy all of these, which is saying a lot! I am a full fledged perfume junkie, but a REALLY picky one… 🙂
My poor little guy (the ALMOST 4-year old-this Friday!) went thru the wringer this weekend, but he seems to be recovering-we had to buy a new vaproizer yesterday, since our old one got worn out-but one thing that seemed to really help was this new vapo-rub for kids and babies. They made it less menthol-y, and added rosemary and lavender-smells almost yummy!
I made my boys’ (all 3 of them) favorite meal last night, tater tot casserole-it’s probably not the healthiest meal, but it sure was comforting…
Not very healthy, not in the least, but makes a great comfort food when one (or more!) people are sick in the house.
Crumble the ground beef, uncooked into the bottom of a 2 qt casserole dish. Season well ( I use garlic salt and seasoned pepper). In a seperate bowl, mix the soup, Milk, chiles, beans, 1C of the Cheese, and the sour cream. Pour over the ground beef. Cover well with Tater tots, then remaining cheese. Bake covered 45minutes at 350*.
Can easily be doubled for a crowd – also isn’t bad with cream of mushroom soup, or cheddar cheese.
