A warm day in march

A couple weekends ago was absolutely gorgeous out.
We spent most of the day outside. It got up to 72 degrees!
Now it's raining and miserable again.....


Girl Names

Anyone have any suggestions?


Our growing baby girl

It's really a girl.....


Chicken with Lemon and Thyme Sauce

I made this the other night for dinner and it was yummo.

I came up wit the recipe myself.

1 large shallot finely diced
2 large cloves of garlic smashed and chopped
1 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme
1/2 cup of sherry
1 cup fat free low sodium chicken broth or stock
1/4 cup of cream or half and half
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
zest of a lemon
1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
Olive oil
flour for dusting (seasoned with spices)
chicken (boneless)
pasta (any type)
panko bread crumbs

For Chicken:
How ever much chicken you want to make is up to you...
*Take chicken and pound flat so it's about and inch or so thick and even.
* In a saute pan add about a tablespoon of olive oil and butter and heat on high. (I like the two mixed, the butter gives it nice flavor)
*while your pan is heating, dust chicken with a seasoned flour (whatever spices you want)
I used salt, lemon pepper, garlic powder and thyme.
*When oil and butter is heated add chicken and lightly brown on both sides. (the chicken should cook pretty fast because it is thin)
*When chicken is done, I put it in my oven on warmer so it stays warm.

For Sauce:
*In a saute pan on medium heat add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and tablespoon of butter.
*Saute shallot, garlic, thyme for a few minutes until shallots are translucent.
*Then add sherry and chicken broth, let simmer for a few minutes.
*Then add cream and cheese and let simmer and thicken for a few minutes.
*Lastly add lemon juice and zest.

Boil pasta and drain.

Add most of the sauce to the cooked pasta reserving a little for the chicken.
Drizzle left over sauce on top of chicken.
I also lightly browned some panko bread crumbs and sprinkled on top of pasta.

Hope you try and enjoy it.
