Just a few thoughts about spring and upcoming summer!

This past weekend was Easter! It was a great day! It was a simple easy day with baskets, egg hunt in the living room and relaxing until dinner time. We went to Tony’s parents for dinner and the girls definitely enjoyed spending time with their grandparents.

I saw in the newspaper that rummage sales are starting and I am super excited! I absolutely love good rummage sales and hope to hit many this summer.

Today, was in the 60s which is way above what it has been since “spring” has started. I am very thankful because the girls are getting cabin fever from being cooped up all day! I have to admit I am too! We did get to enjoy this morning before the rain hit. We ate lunch out there and played on the porch.

Thinking about summer! I am pumped to get the camper all cleaned and ready to go! Camping season is coming up quickly and I want to make sure we have all that we need done and for it!! My parents were wonderful and got the girls each their own backpacks that have camping “necessities”.

Oh how I love spring and summer! So many great activities! What is your favorite thing to do in spring or summer? I would love some more great ideas!

Parmesan Crumb Chicken Recipe

So today I thought I would make something I have never made! I did get the recipe off pinterest! Absolutely amazing site! I am definitely not a perfect cook and usually hate making things. I know have been trying new recipes since becoming a sahm. I truly enjoy making a new meal and seeing if it turns out! Which surprisingly they all have!! I wanted to share this recipe with you because I feel it was quick, easy and yummy! It seriously has 4 ingredients! Which is pretty awesome if I say so!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup shredded cheese

4 teaspoons bread crumbs italian style

3-4 boneless chicken breasts

1/2 cup mayo (I used miracle whip but it can be substituted with real mayo and sour cream.. I have heard all are amazing)

Using the miracle whip it was more tangy… so if you like real mayo… definitely go with that.. sour cream would be my next choice!

I preheated the oven to 425 degrees.

I covered a cookie sheet with foil (easy clean up!)

Placed my chicken on the cookie sheet

Mix the parmesan cheese and the miracle whip (or substitution)

cover the tops of the chicken breasts with mixture!! Can go heavy with it… makes the chicken really moist!

then lightly sprinkle the bread crumbs on top and place in oven!

Bake for about 20-30 minutes…

I had cut the pieces in half at about 20 minutes weren’t completely done so I put back for another 10.

I did chose to use the broil option on my oven for the last 5 minutes to bake the tops a little more til you see the crumbs getting cooked!

Viola! Parmesan Crumb Chicken
