A little gift wrapping/traveling tip, put the bows on when you get to your destination so they stack easily.  Also if you have glass items, put thin items between them so they don’t clink together.  Or just blast country music to drown the noise out.

I even had time to give myself a manicure.

If you like feta & bacon you guys have to try Mike’s freaking amazing stuffed chicken.  Here’s the recipe in his words:


Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

Serves: 2

Preheat oven 350 F

3 strips of bacon cooked and chopped (good quality, don’t be a cheap-butt)
2 big breasts, chicken (what did you think I meant?)
½ cup of crumbled cheese
2 tbs. olive oil
2 cloves crushed garlic
½ tsp. smoked paprika
1 hand full of fresh spinach, chopped

Cook bacon set aside (I’m not gonna tell you how to do it). Butterfly breasts. Mix all the rest in a bowl with the chopped bacon. Stuff all the cheese and bacon goodness in the chicken. Spray a pyrex dish with Pam or olive oil (I like to use a cast iron skillet, but most people don’t have one). Place in oven for about 25-30 minutes.  Top with lemon garlic butter.

Lemon Garlic Butter

Lemon juice
Butter or Margarine
Fresh cracked pepper

Melt it in a small sauce pan (Thin more lemon juice, Thick more butter)

If you try this recipe, let us know!!  I’d love to post your picture of it on the blog.
