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 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.

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking. 
Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year sometim…
