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.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

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.
