What I do when I have too much time on my hands...


Pat was working really late last night so I had a ridiculously long amount of time to prepare dinner. Because I made it one of my anti-shlumpadinka goals to make good dinners i thought i would document this momentous occaision....

I had a few of my favorite ingredients so i decided to make stuffed chicken and lemon garlic asparagus.

You might be surprised but "lemon garlic asparagus" has both lemon juice and garlic on it :)...there is also a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper

and P.S. this grill pan is the best thing i have in my kitchen. We aren't allowed to have grills here so when i want delicious grilled vegetables this is a total life saver.

It is hard to make raw chicken look appetizing, but I thought I would show the "before." All i did to this chicken was slice it thin, pound it out with a meat tenderizer, add salt and pepper and then spread my little mixture on the top side. I stuffed the chicken with diced roasted red peppers and goat cheese that had a little bit of Italian seasoning in it. I rolled it up and kept things together with a toothpick or two.

Not sure if this picture does the dinner justice, but take my word for it - it was soooo good. Even Pat loved it and he says he hates goat cheese. It didn't taste anything like i thought it would but in a really good way - try it some time if you are bored. It ws super easy.
