Chicken Parmesan!!

So, this past sunday, Jim and I were wanting to try some recipes, so, for supper, we made Chicken Parm! It actually turned out really good! =) Here are the steps:

First, get your ingredients together. (Recipe at bottom)
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl:
With your chicken, make sure all of the fat is cut off:
Take the chicken and cover it in melted butter, then dip it in the spices until it is fully covered:
Put them all on the same baking pan:
Right before you stick them in the oven, sprinkle all of the chicken breasts with fresh lemon juice:
Put them in the oven at 350 degrees
While the chicken is cooking, Start the spaghetti!
And the sauce...

We also made garlic bread =) Take the bread, cut in slices, butter and put garlic salt on the slices and then stick it in the oven for like 10 minutes
They should look like this
Vwa Lah! It is super delicious too!

  • Recipe:
  • 1/2 c dried italian bread crumbs
  • 1/8 t garlic powder
  • 1/8 t paprika

14 Years

This past weekend was the Christian Challenge Formal and a couple of the staff members brought their daughters and I started to really miss my dad and realized that it has already been fourteen years that I have been without a father. That is a really long time. Then, after a while of crying, I realized that this was all part of God's plan and that his promise is that i will see my dad again. Yeah, I am still sad, but I realize that I am so truly blessed. I know for sure that his death was part of the plan and it has made me a stronger person because of that. I wouldn't trade anything that has happened to me, my mom has an amazing fiance that I see as a father figure, I have THE most amazing people in my life that I am honored enough to call friends, mentors, and brothers and sisters in Christ and lastly, I have my mom and sister. If it weren't for my dad's death, who knows how close we would have been? Would my sister be my absolute best friend in the whole wide world? Would my mom and I be as close as we were now? (That is pretty dang close too!) So, to all you fathers and mothers out there, cherish everything. =)

Revelation 21:3-4

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
