for real??

So if you know me you know Andy always does the cooking at home. (I am more of a baker.) But yesterday I actually cooked dinner, and by cooked I don't mean a frozen pizza! I found this recipe while searching for some snacks to make for Adam & Kristen's baby shower (which is this weekend! Yay!!) I showed it to Andy and he thought it looked good so I decided to make it. It was really simple to make and quick.  Here are some pics of the prep:

And here it is on the plate! The fries got a little more crispy than I would have liked but it still was a delicious dinner. 

  • 12  ounces skinless, boneless chicken-breast halves
  • 1  egg, lightly beaten
  • 1  tablespoon honey
  • 1  teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1  cup packaged cornflake crumbs or 2 cups cornflakes, finely crushed
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  •   Dash ground black pepper
  •   Ketchup (optional)


1. Heat oven to 450°F. Cut chicken into 3/4-inch strips. In a shallow dish, combine the egg, honey, and mustard. In another shallow dish stir together cornflake crumbs, salt, and pepper. Dip chicken strips into the egg mixture; roll them in crumb mixture to coat evenly.

2. Arrange chicken strips on a baking sheet. Lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with ketchup, if desired.

Last week I got to see 2 of my friends from out of state. First Alisha came into town from LV. We all caught up for dinner Thursday night at The Cheesecake Factory. I wish I was able to go out with them on Friday night but I fell asleep at 9:30! (it was a lonnngg week!) Here are some pics from the dinner:

Sunday I started on one of my New Years goals. I went to church. Heather told me she was coming up for the weekend and asked if I would meet her at church. We used to go to this church in school because it was a good opportunity to watch the ASL interpreter. It felt so good to be back in the church and watching the interpreter sign the most beautiful signs. I can't wait to go back. It was great catching up with Heather. I need to head to Nashville to go visit her soon, preferably when Kenny Chesney might be roaming the streets =)
