Friday Night Fun

This week was a lot of fun.

 We made lots of yummy dishes like this, this, and this.

Woo hoo weekend leftovers.

 Studied insects and my classroom kiddos made these delicious creations.


Packing up was tons of fun on a sugar high.We also found out the rainbow twizzlers….are no good.

Had a couple of adult root beer floats.

 And participated in Friday Pizza night.

Pepper Jack Chicken

While I am not sure I am suppose to – I was so happy to get a short run in this afternoon. I was a light jog and my foot felt good the whole way so maybe the second doctor was right about lack of arch support.

Tomorrow I will use my gym membership and ride a bike just to see if alternating cardio activities will help.

Pepper Jack Crusted Chicken

2 boneless chicken breasts

1/2 cup whole wheat crackers (about 10 crushed)

1/3 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

1/4 cup panko bread crumbs

1 egg

1 tbsp oil

1. Combine crackers, cheese, and bread crumbs in a food processor and pulse, put in small bowl. Put egg in own bowl and beat. Dip chicken in egg mixture and then dredge in crumb mixture.

2. In a skillet, place about 1 tbsp oil and heat to medium-high. Add chicken, cooking for about 5 minutes on each side.

3. Once cooked, top with an extra pinch of pepper jack and let melt.

Tomorrow is the last day until the weekend!

Whoop whoop!

Dirty Rice

I love me some dirrrty rice.

One of my favorite meals and it never fails-

 I always forget how long the rice has to cook.

Rich even got in on the action.

So manly.

Dirty Rice

*adapted from Clean Eating

1 cup cooked rice (it takes about 40-50 minutes…plan accordingly)

1.5 lbs hot turkey sausage (about five links)

1 onion chopped

1 zucchini chopped

1 can kidney beans rinsed and drained

2 tomatoes chopped

1 bay leaf

1 cup spinach chopped

1/2 tablespoon cajun seasoning

1 tablespoon habanero tabasco sauce

1. Brown sausage, once browned add zucchini, and onion and sauté until soft.

2. Add kidney beans, and 1/2 cup water and let cook for 10 minutes.

3. Add bay leaf, spinach and tomato and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Remove the bay leaf and add rice, spice and let mingle for about 10 minutes.

This meal is so yummy. I think you should just make it.

Take the 40 to 50 minutes to cook the rice…it is worth it.

We also taste tested a yummy treat for my secret pal.

Recipe coming soon.
