First- HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my soon to be brother in law- Mike! He is the BEST brother in law in the world :D
^that’s Mike on the far right :) He’s our best man! & he & Craig could seriously be twins. Not even kidding. It’s actually kind of weird HOW alike they are! haha :)
So the creative juices are flowing with new recipe ideas for dinner! I really don’t know where it came from, but I created this new dinner last night. It’s pretty easy & probably contains a lot of ingredients that you already have in your kitchen, which makes it even better :) (& you probably can’t tell by the title, but it’s actually pretty healthy!) The combination of flavors in this recipe are just right…(turkey) bacon, cheese, tomatos & pretzels— yep, you heard that right, pretzels too :)
Bacon & Cheese Stuffed Chicken
-6 chicken breasts pounded thin (I actually used 3 chicken breasts & they were really thick, so I just cut them in half)
-Rondele cheese spread (I could not find a website for this cheese spread, but I found it in a Super Target where they keep the speciality cheese. It’s really good & has really good stats- only like 50 calories per Tablespoon!)
-1 Roma tomato, sliced
-6 sliced cooked turkey bacon
-2 eggs whites
-2 handfuls pretzels (precise measuring, huh?! ;) )
4. Crush your pretzels- either in a food processor or by hand. (You can put them in a Ziploc bag & then just crush them) Roll up your chicken, secure with toothpicks. Take the chicken roll & dip it in the egg whites & then the crushed pretzels.
Eat & enjoy :D If you try it, let me know!
A. Age: 24
B. Bed size: Queen…but like Court said, we need a King (maybe even a California King- LOVE those!) since the mister is a MAJOR bed hog!
C. Chore you hate: Folding laundry. I don’t mind washing it, I just hate folding it & putting it away! UGH.
D. Dogs: LOVE them. I really want one, but Craig is HIGHLY HIGHLY allergic to them. (like Zyrtec & allergy shots don’t even work :( ) BUT, I have hope, I found out there are Minature Goldendoodles from Kristen & now I have my eyes set on one! & they are hypo allergenic!! Now if I could only come up with about $3500 tomorrow ;)
^OMG. MUST have asap!
F. Favorite color: Purple (agree with Courtney!)

I. Instruments you play: bahahaha! This makes me laugh. I am TERRIBLE at instruments! So the answer to that one is NONE!

^that’s my piggy bank that I have had for nearly 24 years. (that’s my whole life ;) ) My Dad got it as a gift for me from a lady he worked with- she hand painted it! So cool, huh?! It is one of my MOST valued possessions. If my house was on fire, this is one of the things I would grab!
