Happy Friday!

**UPDATE: Thanks to Crystal, I made an html box to make it easy to copy my site button. Go on, you know you want to copy it ;-)**

** I added my button for Summer Grace Baby Cakes to my sidebar. Some of you have requested one to put on your own blogs, which I appreciate so much! So, feel free to steal it. I'm trying to figure out how to add a box under it with the html so it's easy to copy/paste, but I'm not having much luck. If you know how to do that, let me know!**

We had the best dinner last night. I was too hungry to take a picture of it so I'll just tell you... we had mashed potatoes, a huge salad, and Chicken Julienne. I found the recipe searching for something to do with my chicken with ingredients I already had. You all have to make this, it was delicious.

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 dash paprika, for garnish

  1. Place the butter and flour in separate shallow dishes. Dredge the chicken strips first in the flour, coating evenly, and then in the butter. Place chicken in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Add salt, and pepper, to taste. Pour the heavy cream over the chicken. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese, and paprika.
  2. Bake in preheated oven until cheese melts and cream bubbles, about 20 minutes.

After reading some of the reviews on the website, I substituted the cream with a can of cream of mushroom, and I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic on top of the chicken. Joe and the girls loved it, I think this is something I'll be making often.

I was going to be watching Xavier today, but Nicole just called and said they called her and told her they over-loaded the schedule and to just stay home today. I'll probably be watching him tonight though, while they go to the boat (Horseshoe Casino) for a little while.

My friend Jillia is going to come over soon. She works a lot so I don't see her much, so that should be nice. Although, she just broke up with her boyfriend and seems to be fitting the "psycho ex" role quite nicely right now, so I'll probably spend most of the day convincing her not to let the air out of his tires like I had to do last week.

I sold my very first diaper cake yesterday! A friend of mine, Ken, has a friend from high school that is having a baby. He bought the animal cake. He also bought a custom cake, and requested that I make it out of Depends, as a joke for a friend of his. I'll definitely be taking a picture of that once it's finished!

I'd better end this now before I start to ramble. Have a great day!

Hey girly...where's the HTML for your button? I'd be happy to add it to my sidebar.

I think your cakes are adorable! Like I said, if I knew anybody who was pregnant right now, they'd definitely be getting one of your cakes. :)

Congratulations on your first sale. That's awesome!

That chicken dish sounds really good...but I'd have to modify it for WW.

Have a good weekend!
