Family Weekend

Allen's family is here for the weekend. Last night his parents and Allen and I went to the Martini's & Imax at the Fernbank Museum. We saw the Amazon Imax movie and it was pretty cool, although it made me a little motion sick. It was a good night out.

Today we've been doing all sorts of things. Allen's sister, Lindsay just got here tonight and is newly engaged (as of last Saturday)!! The picture above is one of them taken on their spring break trip last year. She and her fiance, Michael, are getting married December 9, 2006 in Augusta. We are super excited for them. Michael is such a great guy and we couldn't ask for a better future brother-in-law! Lindsay is 21 and an accountant major and cheerleader at Georgia College and State University. She met Michael there who is getting an education degree. He will be 22 next Friday. They will both graduate in May and Michael is going to teach for a year while Lindsay gets her masters degree.

Tonight I made a Chicken Parmesan recipe that I got from Sam Mohlenhoff, which I've modified just a little bit. It's super easy. Everyone seemed to like it and Lindsay asked me to put it on our blog so that Michael will cook it for here goes:

Chicken Parmesan
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts pounded flat
1 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 egg whites
2 jars spaghetti sauce (or about that, depending on how much sauce you like)
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 package spaghetti noodles (cooked and drained)

Preheat the oven to 350°. Mix bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese in a bowl. Dip chicken in bread crumb mixture, in egg white, and then back into the bread crumb mixture and place in a lightly greased oven safe casserole dish. Cook chicken in oven for 35 minutes (or until chicken is fully cooked). Pour spaghetti sauce into a sauce pan and heat it on the stove. Once chicken is done, remove it from the oven and cover it with sauce (to taste) and mozzarella and remaining parmesan cheese (sprinklethymee or basil on top for color). Put chicken back into the oven and cook for 5 more minutes (or until cheese is melted). Serve with spaghetti noodles and extra spaghetti sauce.
