weekend and Lemon Chicken Recipe.

I saw a dead cat on the side of the road yesterday while I was driving, It made me super sad I'm so girly these days. ASIDE from that random note of sadness I had a great weekend with some great kids, maybe I'm crazy but it made me want to actually have kids of my own. I made them this lemon chicken for dinner and they loved it, truly it is rather amazing and herrrreeee is the recipe:)
*4 Chicken Breasts, fillet them so they are flat ( or sometimes I cut the chicken into peices as seen above.)
*2 eggs *8 tbls of lemon juice
*11/2 cup flour *3/4 tsp garlic powder * 3/4 tsp seasoning salt * 1/2 tsp chili powder
* 1/4 cup butter *3 cups boiling water( in this water put in some sort of chicken flavoring, either squares or powder, use according to directions)
* 1 box of pasta ( pasta is the best but sometimes I just make rice)
* some sort of vegetable, I usually use carrots or broccoli
Part one
Beat eggs and 2 tbls  of lemon juice in a bowl
mix flour, chili powder, garlic powder and season salt together in another bowl.
dip chicken in the egg mixture and then coat in the flour mixture, set aside on a plate
Part two
in a large skillet melt butter
in a medium pot boil water, remaining lemon juice and add chicken flavor
when butter is melted on medium heat put chicken in and brown on both sides, when both sides are browned
pour the boiling water into the skillet let sit covered for 20 minutes turning chicken over after 10 min.during the 20 minutes you can cook the pasta, usually I put carrots or broccoli in with the pasta to save boiling time,
Serve chicken over hot pasta and vegetables, the liquid you cooked the chicken is really yummy, I usually put it on the pasta!
Enjoy!

I don't know a good title....and Cookie recipe:)

Well I have been having a rough few days.. I don't know why, just been down, I actually know exactly why but I musn't use up all this space with my problems.. haha. This whole not being able to sleep cause of to many things on my mind deal has gotta stop tho.. or Im gonna look like a raccoon... a raccooon with great hair at least.
After Christmas I bought a new truck and I am LOVING it, its so beautifully shiny, or it was anyways, this past week has been hard on it with all the snow melting. How bout that weather eh.. minus 39.. Don't miss that!
I thought I would add a recipe of some fantabulas cookies Brittany and I made at christmas time, I think I will make heart ones for valentines day...I'm kinda iffy about valentines day but whatever.
          Sugar Cookies                                                  
1 cup butter    2 cups sugar
2 eggs             3 tsp. vanilla

1 cup sour cream 1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking soda  5 1/2 cups flour

In mixer, cream butter and sugar, and then add eggs and vanilla. Add sour cream. Combine salt, soda, and flour, and add to mixture.

Use a spatula to carefully slide under each cookie and place onto greased cookiesheets. Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes.  These cookies will not look done but do not.. I repeat DO NOT put them back in the oven, they will not taste good if they are hard and crunchy!


Let them cool for about...half an hour on a wire cooling rack. then decorate as you wish. They are so delicious:)

AND lets not forget cute sisters for good measure!

Christmas gone weddings on the rise.

Most of you know it isn't I who is getting married, but my sister, Maddie, and my Best Friend Brittany are marrying some lovely gentlemen.   Its funny how two people can have two completely different tastes in the same event. Both weddings are going to be lovely, and I am honored to be the Maid of honor for both my sisters:)

Christmas was a lovely time, having three kids under the age of  7 bring back the old traditions of things like waking up at a VERY early hour. But I admit waking up to three little kids yelling out "this is the best day ever" is pretty cute and Maddie and I dealt with our over tired-ness by falling asleep at 5pm on Christmas evening!

                                                                   Excited Children!
                                                                WHY? is she so darn cute!
                                                                          Brothers!
                                                                  Love Bugs!
