Eight Years….

I made a such a great dinner last night that I just had to share it with you. This is a quick and easy take on chicken cordon blue.

I think I saw this recipe in a Southern Living Magazine… not sure though.

Its super easy…

First you wanna take about a cup of Italian bread crumbs, a little salt and pepper, and put it in a large ziploc bag. Then take some chicken breast tenders that have been cleaned, place them in the ziploc bag, and shake away until they’re all coated with crumbs.

Cook them in a large pan with a couple tablespoons of olive oil until browned…. about five minutes on each side.


Once cooked, place a strip of canadian bacon on each chicken tender.

Then place a small slice of swiss cheese on top.

Finally… take the entire pan, place it in the oven and broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted.

I served this with some Israeli Couscous and sauteed zucchini and mushrooms. This is so good and so easy! Its perfect for a quick dinner.

Eight Years……………

Today… Tim and I are celebrating our eight year wedding anniversary! I can’t believe its been eight years. It feels like just yesterday when I was a little twenty-two year old girl, out at a bar, and met this tall handsome man.

Yes… we met at a bar. I wish I had some unique story on how we met… but no… we met at a bar 10 1/2 years ago and have been together ever since.

We’ve been through so much together… and have literally grown up together. He’s my best friend and I feel so fortunate to have him in my life.

And now we have Little Miss M… she just brought everything to a whole other level….

That smile just about says it all…….

…. and on that note…. I’m out….

Have a great Tuesday! 🙂

    Aw, happy anniversary! I am so with you on growing up with your husband. Tony and I did the same thing! It still shocks us when we realize that we were not far off from our kid’s age when we met. Gosh…time flies when you are having fun! Have a great day sweetie and enjoy your family!

    Happy ANniv!!!!!!

    Our 10 year is coming up (married 10) together about 12. We also met at a bar! I’ve posted my story before, how we were inseparable ever since then, and yes, we have our precious lil one too 🙂

    Interesting that we both met our spouses at bars
    We both had girls
    And we both waited a good 5 yrs before having a child. Most ppl pop ’em out right away when they get married 🙂

    Ahh! Happy Anniversary, doll!

    I had a military wedding, too…only mine wasn’t successful sadly. But it was a gorgeous occasion! I’m a sucker for a guy in (military) uniform!
