The BIG 27!

I recently celebrated 27 years here on earth!  Mr. PT got me an Ipad which I have been obsessing about in the past week...hence my lack of blogging.

But I have been wanting to share this amazing chicken dish Mr. PT cooked up for me!  (I only helped a little...)

It was really healthy, incredibly delicious, and quite light!

He started by softening 1/2 red onion, sliced, in 1-2 tbs of butter in a hot pan.  He set this aside.

Then he lightly breaded 4 chicken breasts with whipped egg and breadcrumbs and cooked them in a hot pan with olive oil.  When the chicken was cooked through, he wrapped the breasts in aluminum foil and tucked them into a low-heat oven for safe keeping.

To the chickeny-oily mixture in the pan, he added 1/4 cup white wine, 2 tbs butter, salt/pepper, and 1/2 squeezed lemon.  He reduced this to a nice sauce.

While this was reducing, he put about 4 heaping handfulls of spinach leaves in a large bowl with 4-5 tbs of water.  He covered the bowl with plastic wrap and microwaved it on high for 5 minutes.  This steamed the spinach.

To the steamed, drained spinach, he added 1 tbs butter and the other 1/2 of the lemon juice (squeezed), with a dash of salt/pepper.

To put it all together, he spread the spinach on the plate, topped it with a chicken breast, topped THAT with onions, and topped THAT with the wonderful wine-lemon sauce.


It was a wonderful dinner and a wonderful birthday.  27 is going to be a great year!

Combine with a challenging walk/run...tackle that hill you normally avoid!

You can always download the ipad blogger app! That way you can blog from your ipad! I caved and paid the $50 or so for the articulation station... I used it a lot at first with my speedy speech kids, but not so much recently!

I am so eager to buy speech apps but I don't know what to buy!! Jenna just did a review for a phonological one on her blog Speech Room News that I am considering. Downloading apps is on my list to do for spring break!
