Chicken Parmesan

Can you believe I have never made this dish. For some reason I guess I thought it would be real complicated. It was nothing like the chili rellenos we cooked. We got some chicken breast on sale and thought we would give this a go. We had some spaghetti sauce put up and used that.

2 boneless and skinless chicken breast pounded flat
Salt and pepper
Cook spaghetti for two.
1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1 egg beaten
2 teaspoons butter
1 cup spaghetti sauce
2 slices mozzarella cheese
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
Flatten chicken and salt and pepper to taste
Dip chicken in egg and then in bread crumbs
Fry in butter in hot skillet, turning and browning for about 10 minutes
or till cooked
remove from skillet
add spaghetti sauce to skillet and heat
Add chicken and place mozzarella on top of chicken
Cover and cook till cheese is melted.
Place over spaghetti and sprinkles parmesan cheese on top.

Salmon with Lime and Cilantro

We have had meat for the last few blogs so its time for a fish. The only problem with this dish is it is the second time we have fixed it and it is so good that we have not wanted to try a new recipe. So we hope you try it and like it as much as we do. We had fried eggplant and fresh green beans with new potatoes. Just look on side bar for recipes for them.

4 salmon fillets
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450
place salmon on baking sheet and season with salt and pepper
Bake until no longer pink in middle 10-13 minutes depending on how thick
remove from pan
In a small bowl mix lime juice,sugar, soy sauce and chopped cilantro
Serve salmon with sauce [poured over it and we also but some in a bowl on the side.

Thanks to every one and poor puddy

First I would like to thank Ms Carolyn and staff at the Comfort Inn in Tupelo their kindness and hospitality is unmatched by any. So if any one is going to be staying overnight in Tupelo this is the place.

Second I would like to thank everyone who visits and reads my blog I look forward to comments and emails.

It has been one long hot summer and I am really enjoying the cool weather that has come in. I'm ready to get back cooking and hope to be home more starting in Nov. Wife and I are already getting into the soup mode and hunting for new recipes. We just have one problem our go to site ( the death of the Zaar is now food .com ugh) has changed and she will not use it any more as it is so hard to find anything and does not work the way it did. It was nice to list what ingredients we had and do a search to find a recipe to fit. So if anyone know of another site please let us know.

We took two of our cats to the vet they are getting old and have bad teeth so we had them cleaned and a few pulled. Talk about working to pay for animals. I think it cost more to take them than us. Spot Jr is just not getting around good right now and was sliding all over the wooden floors. The anesthesia seemed to last a little longer on him.. Here he is in bed with me as I read him a tale of two mice along with Blue.
