Be My Guest

Life has been busy busy busy, and with the start up of work, two university classes, and attempting to go to the gym my blogging has taken a back seat.

Thankfully, I got a reprieve from all of the above when one of my best girlfriends and her adorable kids came for a visit this weekend. It was a wonderful excuse to try some new recipes, have friends and family over, and play with babies. All things that I love.

Last night, I made Jenna's Chicken Parmesan with a twist.

Start with dipping your chicken in eggs/milk, followed by bread crumbs, then whole wheat flour.

Throw it in a fry pan until the chicken is browned on both sides and cooked through.

Throw these in a casserole dish with some marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni on top.  Sounds weird. Looks like this.

Served on whole grain spaghetti with a salad. We didn't like the pepperoni on it, but it was good chicken parmesan.

This morning, we started our morning with classic Green Monsters.

My friend had never tried a green drink so I blended away.

I gathered the ingredients.

Put them in a blender and blend until good and green.

It looks incredibly shady, but tastes delicious.

Served with whole grain toast and almond butter.

Tonight I had friends and family over and cooked for all of them. It has been forever since I had to opportunity to cook for a bunch of people and I loved it.

Supper was vegetarian lasagne.

Served with salad, veggies and jalapeno cheddar bread.

Dessert was chocolate vegan pudding with fresh fruit.

And hot chocolate and Baileys.

Have I mentioned how much I love to eat?!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
