I had a busy night last night in preparation for David to come home! I made Chicken Piccata and Steamed Peas as well as Granola Bars for Dessert and morning snacks. I also took out the trash, organized the recyling, did the laundry and still got into bed by 9:30. Talked to Dave briefly at 935pm and then he told me he would call back by 10. I was half asleep when he did. Its amazing how quickly the tired feeling "just hits." Maybe its my bed and the fact that the Bob-A-Pedic (I hate Bob's but this bed is the best bed in the world!!!) I swear its the reason I have absolutely no problem sleeping EVER! Here is my recipe for Chicken Piccata:
I used three Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast and cut them in half to make them thinner. I then drenched them in flour in put them in the pan with some "I Can't Believe its not butter" and Lemon Juice and some Chicken Broth. I cooked the chicken in batches until it was all cooked through. Oh and obviously I seasoned it with lots of Salt & Pepper. I also steamed some peas. Here's what the dish looks like:
Then, I decided to make Energy/Granola Mix/Bars. Here's the recipe from All Whites:
Loaded with nutrition from whole grains, flax, and dried fruit, the good-for-you granola bars in this recipe bake up to a chewy perfection in your oven.
