It does not seem like much is going on. But when I look back at the last few weeks there has been some changes. Jon has lost some weight and is still losing weight! I got a different position at work and that starts tomorrow. It will be in the mortgage department. I am excited and nervous! I worked my last Saturday yesterday and now I will have Saturday's off with Jon. Jon got a brand new work van so he moved out of his old one. That took about a week. I am very happy he has a new van because the gas gauge in the old one did not work. He would run out of gas often and some times I would have to go bring him gas. As far as other changes not too much is different. We had a great Easter weekend with both of our families. I will probably need to go on the treadmill everyday this week because of all of the candy we have! Thanks for stopping by. I will try to get some pictures in the next post or two!

Parmesan Chicken

I shop at a Maceys Grocery store near my house and each week they have a dinner with the ingredients to purchase. I decided to give this one a try and Jon and I loved it. We will make it again soon I am sure. The ingredients are:
2 lbs Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
15 Oz Bread Crumbs
5 Oz Bel Gioioso Grated Parmesan Cheese
10.75 Oz Campbell's Cream of Chick Soup
Garlic Powder
Paprika (I didn't use this because I did not have any and it was good without)

First preheat oven to 400 degrees
Then you combine 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl.
Roll the chicken in the mixture
Arrange the chicken in a 2 quart shallow baking dish
Bake for 20 minutes
Turn chicken and bake another 20 minutes
Blend 1 can cream of chicken soup and 1/2 cup milk and pour over chicken

Sprinkle with paprika and remaining Parmesan cheese

Bake another 20 minutes or until done

We had some vegetables but they didn't not get done in time. We also had left overs and they reheat very well. Hope you enjoy! If you try it let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday.... to me!

Tuesday was my Birthday and it was a lot of fun! My mom came over in the morning and then we met Cami's family and Jon at Cafe Rio. It was yummy! And a lot of fun! Then my Mom, Cami, and I went to TJ Maxx and looked around for awhile. My Mom and I also made a craft. I then went home and Jon and I went to Ruby River for dinner. I love that place! After dinner Jon gave me some of my presents. He gave me a camera, a 16 gig sd card and a cute pink case. (Some of my presents did not get here until Wednesday so I opened them on Thursday.) Jon's parents came over and gave me a present too! My neighbor also came over and gave me a cute Easter decoration. It was a great birthday and on Sunday I get to go over to my parents to get more presents. I can't wait! Here are some pictures! Thanks for stopping by!
