Naughty and Nice…Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Provolone and Wrapped in Bacon…

Hey! At least I didn’t fry them! 😉

It seems like forever since I have posted a new dinner idea. This one actually came by accident. The girls have been asking for my Cheesy Ham Stuffed Chicken for a couple of weeks now. I defrosted some chicken and found some provolone and bacon in the fridge. Eureka!

So I cut 3 chicken breasts in half without cutting them all the way through. I put one piece of provolone in each center. Then I closed them and wrapped them in bacon; 2 pieces each chicken breast. I cooked them in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. I served them rice pilaf and green peas. Yum!

Catch up with a side of Stir Fry…

Hey guys! I promise I am eating! Mostly quick meals at home, take-out, and the occasional take-out…

The reason why? Well, cheer season has started back again. School is around the corner. I am soaking up all the summer left!

My girls playing at the park. Missing one little angel here.

Sunday, I made some chicken stir fry kinda like this. The noodles were not the same, but everything else pretty much was. You could also use rice instead of noodles.

Last night, the hubby and I ate a sushi dinner after we dropped the girls off at cheer camp. It was glorious!

Today I ate 2 Eggo waffles standing over the counter, Jimmy John’s Lulu Club sandwich, and a Taco Bell bean burrito and nacho chips. They were all good…no regrets! YOLO 😉

Tomorrow is another crazy day! Probably will just drink coffee for breakfast, a tomato sandwich for lunch, and who knows what for dinner??? Only 5 more days of my official summer so anything is possible!

Weekend Wrap-Up and a Yummy Monday Brunch

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!

Friday we had a great time at the pool. The girls had a blast with lots of the neighborhood kids.

 

Then the girls had a slumber party with a few friends. They had a blast!

Then they slept over with my parents. The hubby and I had a great time with some friends at the house. I made my “famous” enchiladas. It is nice to hang with family friends without kids every once in a while.

Then yesterday, my parents met us at Texas Roadhouse for dinner to celebrate the hubby’s birthday! Their filet is to die for! We started with some yummy potato skins. img_4388

Now on to the brunch I made this morning…

Sunny Side Up Eggs with Sauteed Mini Heirloom Tomatoes

I got some amazing tomatoes this week at the farmer’s market. I mean…July is the BEST for tomatoes! I took a couple of handfuls of those beauties and cooked them in a bit of olive oil with a good pinch of salt and pepper. I covered them with a lid and just let those babies pop and char for a good 5 minutes. I toasted some English muffins and made my sunny side up eggs.


I topped the English muffins with an egg and some of those gorgeous tomatoes!

PERFECTION! 

Easy Stove Top Porkchops

So easy it is ridiculous…

1. SMOKING HOT PAN!
2. Salt and Pepper some bone in thick cut pork chops.
3. Coat them with olive oil.
4. Put in the pan and cook on first side for about 12 minutes.
5. Turn over and cook until internal temperature reaches 150. Take out and let rest at least 10 minutes. It will continue to cook (carry over cooking) until close to 160. It will be super safe to eat! Super moist and juicy.
