I was planning on taking Riley on a hike today after school so that I could take some pictures and get some exercise. Mother Nature has different plans. It is cold and rainy with a chance of SNOW tonight. I am done with winter! Tomorrow is supposed to be nicer. Let’s hope.

I guess I will spend the day warm inside my house. I am 150 pages into a fantastic book right now. Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. The former Catholic schoolgirl in me feels so wrong reading it, the current me finds that it is hilarious satire. I think I’ve laughed out loud while reading each page. Highly recommended for those who are not easily offended.

Tonight for dinner I am going to make Chicken Parmesan. It’s one of my favorites.

Chicken Parmesan

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts pounded thin

2 eggs

1/4 cup olive oil

1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed

Crushed red pepper to taste

2 cups pasta sauce

1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese

Angel Hair Pasta

Preheat oven to 375

In a bowl combine the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, garlic and crushed red pepper. In another bowl beat the two eggs with a fork. Dip the chicken into the egg and then into the bread crumb mix. Set aside.

Heat a skillet containing the olive oil and pan fry until the chicken is cooked through. Usually 5 minutes a side. Remove from heat.

Place chicken breasts into a baking dish coated with non-stick spray. Cover with the desired amount of pasta sauce and top with Mozzarella cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve over Angel Hair pasta cooked according to package instructions.
