Tasty Tuesday: Chicken Rollatini

First off, let me just say that thinking back on it, I actually did not make this EXACT recipe. It's low fat! I'm a high-fat low-carb kind of gal. Low fat makes me cringe. So though I didn't make this exact chicken rollatini I can talk to you about what I did make and what I would do differently next time. Without further delay...Chicken Rollatini with Spinach Alla Parmigiana!

I don't have any prep pictures because I hate raw chicken. Actually, I hate raw chicken so much that I almost hate cooked chicken. I try to avoid its grossness. Lucky for you there are prep pictures in the recipe post if you're into that whole raw chicken thing that is. I found this recipe several years ago and it's sat languishing in my Pinterest feed ever since. The other day as I was looking through my Recipes to Try board I saw it and thought why not?



I bought all the stuff, put the chicken in the freezer to make it later in the week only to not take it out in time and have to go out and buy more chicken, but hey, it was cheaper than going out to eat! So the recipe itself was easy enough once I had chicken that wasn't a brick. I think instead of just buying thin cut breasts I would pound them a little next time. The rolling part was a little easier than I anticipated. I mean they really stuck together and held their own. I did use whole eggs instead of egg whites for the egg dip. Next time I'll probably use straight up butter because fat is good for you! Oh, I wonder if olive oil would work? Note to self: try olive oil next time instead of butter, because olive fat is better for you than milk solids...


So I made them up, used some leftover pizza sauce from the Sicilian Pizza we had the day before. Plopped down some fresh mozzarella,back in the oven to melt and dinner was done! Overall, it wasn't bad, but it was low fat and because of that I felt like something was missing. I will try it again. Until then, it's been bumped to the Meh pile.


PS The kid didn't like it much at all, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up. The rule of thumb is that you have to try something three separate times before you discover you like it.

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…
