Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
Ah...Spring Break is here. Now, we will just pray for spring weather.
I have put my spring cleaning on hold. This week we will begin spring painting. I usually like to touch up the scratches and footprints once or twice a year. (Do boys walk on walls? I often find footprints in the oddest of places.) This year some of my walls have been washed a few (hundred) too many times. When we bought this house, I was also afraid of going too wild with my color scheme. You see, I was NOT in love with this house when we bought it (which is about a week's worth of posts, so I will spare you the story). I decided that we should keep most everything neutral. Well, the reality of our staying here longer than we anticipated has finally crept into my brain. So, HELLO COLOR!
I will keep you posted and maybe even share some pictures of Sweet Pea's room when I have it completed. Because you all need to celebrate the simple fact that I can finally decorate a room that does not revolve around a theme of sports or cars. HELLO PINK! I have been longing to paint you on my walls!
Now, before you think the boys are getting the shaft, you will be happy to know that their room is getting rearranged and painted, as well. It will be a very exciting shade of tan with navy blue trim. Yes, I am trying to find a color that will match the hand prints and footprints on their walls. Do you blame me?
So, what's for dinner, you ask? After all, it is Friday Fare and I haven't even gotten to the topic of dinner.
Parsley Parmesan Chicken
1/4 C. Italian salad dressing (I use light)
2 lbs. chicken (I like to use breasts, but you can use fresh fryer parts)
1/2 C. Parmesan cheese
1/3 C. dry bread crumbs
2 T. parsley flakes
1/2 t. paprika
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt
Pour salad dressing in a large bowl. Add the chicken to the dressing, coating well. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours, or overnight. (You may need to turn the chicken a couple of times.) Combine Parmesan cheese and the rest of the ingredients in a shallow bowl. Roll each piece of chicken in the crumbs, then place chicken in a greased 9x13 pan or on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes, or until the thickest piece of chicken is done.
This stuff has awesome flavor and I am not lying when I say EVERYONE in my family eats this dish.
Simple. Easy. Delicious.
Off to paint...
