What Will I Do Now?

What will I do now is the question I have been asking myself. All of my favorite television shows had their season finale or will this week. Celebrity Apprentice ended Sunday, with my favorite John Rich winning and for a great cause.

Another favorite show just ended last night, DWTS (Dancing With the Stars for those of you who don't follow it). My favorite couldn't be more obvious being from the Steeler Nation, Hines Ward danced away with the mirror ball trophy.

What will tonight bring on American Idol? Will it be Lauren or Scotty? My favorite is Scotty. Will I will the trifecta? Good luck to both contestants, they are both very talented.

Chicken Tenders

Is it a baseball or soccer night in your house? Need a quick healthy meal & not the processed stuff? This worked for me the other day. I also made a nice pasta salad with fresh veggies & whole wheat pasta. The the whole wheat pasta provides an excellent source of protein.

Chicken Tenders


8 strips of chicken

2 eggs

2 Tbs. unsalted butter (melted)

2 Tbs. milk

5 cups of breadcrumbs

Olive oil

1) Beat eggs & add milk together.

2) Add melted butter to egg & milk mixture.

3) Dry chicken with paper towel.

4) Dip each chicken strip into egg milk mixture. Allow excess to drain off.

5) Coat chicken with bread crumbs.

6) Repeat steps 4 & 5 one additional time.

7) Pour about 1 1/2 -2 cups of olive oil into a large frying pan.

8) Heat oil in pan on medium-high heat.

9) Add chicken to heated pan & allow to brown on both sides.

10) Once chicken is done browning remove from frying pan & place on a baking sheet & bake for an additional 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

11) Remove from oven & serve.


Happy Monday

This is exactly how I feel about Mondays.

The Writing Was on the Wall

The writing was truly on the wall. I just didn't think it would be my husband's nephew. My husband & I have always predicted that it would be one of his niece's that would become pregnant at sixteen. Well, just last week on Mother's Day of all days, we found out that my nephew & his seventeen year old girlfriend are pregnant. I will take this as a teaching moment with my own children & explain to them there are consequences for your actions.
