Cheesy Chicken!

March 9, 2010 at 10:12 am (Dinner at My House)

Alright so I can no longer post at work…our server was updated so now we are linked to the corporate headquarters, so I guess this means they are watching us now…IDK I shouldn’t be posting from work anyways :)! I made a fabulous dinner this weekend, so I thought I would share.
Stuff you’ll need:
boneless skinless chicken strips
fresh garlic
garlic powder
lawrys seasoned salt
two kinds of cheeses ( I chose fresh grated Parmesan and mozzarella)
bacon
toothpicks

Steps: Preheat oven to 400 degees
You want to pound the chicken strips so they lay flat, after all of the strips are flat season both sides with garlic powder and seasoned salt (feel free to use whatever seasoning you like). Theb place the mixed cheeses on top of one strip and lay another strip on top. Next you wrap a slice of bacon around this and secure with a toothpick. have your baking pans ready that have been buttered and place each chicken wrap in the pan as you secure it with a toothpick. After you have all of the chicken wrapped and ready place some minced fresh garlic on top and scatter some butter aside the chicken so it stays moist while baking. Place in the oven for about 20-35 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken. When there is a couple of minutes left add the rest of the mixed cheese to the top of the chicken and put it back in the
oven to melt!

Mel absolutely loved this dish, he couldn’t stop complementing it! I hope you like it too!

I will be posting about the surpise party soon! Overall it was a success but very stressful the hour before!

Surprise!

March 4, 2010 at 10:12 am (Daily Ramblings, Family)

I am throwing my very first surprise party! It’s for Mel’s 25th birthday, which is this Sunday! I have invited quite a few people and he has NO IDEA, which is the most exciting part! He thinks everyone is busy on his birthday! I can’t wait to see the look on his face when he sees everyone there. One couple we haven’t seen in years so I KNOW he’ll be surprised to see them! I’m throwing it at Dave & Busters (it’s great food and an adult arcade if you’ve never heard of them). What I want to know is has anyone thrown a surprise party before? Is there something I should be aware of or know before going into this? I appreciate any help!

Happy Thursday, almost Friday!!

Snowed in…

March 1, 2010 at 11:20 am (Daily Ramblings, Family, Gotta Love Men!)

To answer the question “what are kissing bells?” You know how people clank their utensils on glasses to make the bride and groom kiss? Well that annoys the bajeesus out of Mel so we are thinking about doing Kissing Bells, which are little bells that people ring if they want us to kiss!

I asked for snow…and I got it!! Boy did I get it! Wednesday night into Thursday we got around 8 inches (not too bad) couldn’t go into work…then Thursday into Friday we got 36 inches of snow!! AND our power went out! And we were told that power wouldn’t be restored until next Wednesday!  So we were stuck, thank goodness Mel’s boss has a plow because after an hour of shoveling we had maybe dug out 1/4 of what needed to be dug out! Then we all went to town and had breakfast…planning ahead and not knowing when we would be able to shower next! Our friend who lives in the same town came over to hang out with us because we have a propane heater…and her house had electric heat and she was a bit frozen. We were planning on gonig to a hotel…but ALL of the hotels in ALL of the surrounding areas were BOOKED SOLID! So we were going to rent a small generator…only one place had one left and we needed to get there by 5…it was 4:20! We rushed but couldn’t do it, then we borrowed a generator, but something was wrong with it so we only had about an hour and a half with that one. All this brings us to Friday night, we had the propane heater on until we went to bed (because of the fumes, we had to turn it off) when we woke up, we were both icicles and started working on a new generator. Mel’s dad (who is essentially our landlord) decided he needed to buy a generator, even if we got power back it’s good to have. We went to Home Depot, bought a generator, had a good friend wire it into our fuse box…and the whole house lit up!! I got to take a shower and all was right with the world…except NO CABLE! OMG I know, I have heat but no cable, whats the point? 🙂 We went out with friends to Red Robbin on Saturday night, and when we got home power was restored and so was cable. This is when I learned about Chile and the new devastation there. We had a good night of sleep, and then the cable was out again Sunday morning! BLAH! I went with a couple of girlfriends to register at Macy’s (SO MUCH FUN and I got a free tote bag!) And by the time Mel and I got home from laundary and our errands we had Cable!! All in all we had a crazy weekend, going non-stop trying to figure out how to heat our home so our pipes wouldn’t freeze and I forgot to mention, I had to melt snow on our propane stove to be able to flush the toilet! I was a semi-pioneer for a couple of days…and I survived!

Thanks to everyone who gave me advise about not stressing about the wedding, and honestly you are right. I should just enjoy every part of it because I only get to do it once!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a warm weekend!
