I hate the first line of a blog post…it’s kind of like an introduction when you’re first meeting someone and after you exchange hellos and how are you’s…the conversation kind of falls flat. Or maybe that’s just me?
That is neither one of the 2 aforementioned thoughts. Speaking of which, I love a good 5-point word. In my world, “aforementioned” falls into the 5 point category.
Thought 1. Don’t forget to link up with LIY tomorrow to share your blog crush. This is kind of like the junior high dance when you can’t wait to see who slow dances with who. Or who gets the slow skate at the skating party. Come on…don’t pretend like you have no idea what I’m talking about.
Thought 2. This is actually more like a question I’m going to pose to all my fellow lady bloggers. Do you weigh yourself and pontificate (ohhhhh, another 5 point word!) about the number staring back at you? Or do you make sure you look good and keep on keepin’ on, so long as your pants still fit? Lately I’ve been super stressing over scale numbers…and wait for it…we don’t even have a scale.
I literally have anxiety about not being able to see that little number pop up. What gives?
And because we just talked about weight anxiety, it’s absolutely necessary I provide you with a recipe. Oh and not just any recipe either. One Sarah made for me while I visited and then I re-created for Dane. Folks, that was a week ago and homeboy is STILL talking about it. STILL. It’s THAT good.
Without further ado: Bleu Cheese Chicken
You will need:
2 chicken breasts
1 cup bleu cheese
1 cup buffalo sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot)
1 tbsp margarine
1 frying pan
1 oven (that works)
I feel it necessary to include the last three as I was once reading the complaints on a product that was used for cleaning and the user wrote “I didn’t know I would have to buy my own cleaning detergent.”
So for all intents and purposes and full disclosure…you will need a frying pan, a baking pan and an oven. Not to mention two working arms and a brain.
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cut each chicken breast 3/4 of the way through, so you create a little pocket.
3. Stuff 1/4 cup bleu cheese into each chicken breast.
4. Brown each breast in a frying pan for no more than 10 minutes. I always gauge how white the chicken starts to get. So this should read “When the chicken no longer looks pink on the outside, you’re good.”
5. Put the chicken breasts in the baking pan and into the oven.
6. In the hot frying pan, pour the rest of the bleu cheese, the buffalo sauce, and the margarine. Heat to a liquid consistency.
7. Pour this mixture over the chicken in the oven.
8. Make sure your chicken is baked all the way through and enjoy!
Again, I was way too hungry to photograph this masterpiece and I’ll be fully honest…it wasn’t very photo friendly…but ohhhh how delicious. Instead, I’ll give you this. Happy Wednesday!
What do you mean I’m over my data for the month?
