A New Do...for Rocklin
Thursday, March 19, 2009
Last night I made the most delicious dinner. I had bacon and chicken and searched the Internet for a recipe for some sort of bacon wrapped chicken. I was pleasantly surprised when I found a recipe with only 5 ingredients. That's right, 5. But that wasn't the best part. The best part was that it turned out SO delicious!! If you're looking for something quick, easy and really good...I totally recommend this. (And no, that picture isn't mine, I got it from the website where I found the recipe. HERE is the link to their version of the recipe as well as additional pictures).
Here's the recipe (and I scaled mine down to just a few pieces of chicken):
12 boneless skinless chicken breasts halves
2 (8 oz) cartons chive and onion cream cheese
12 slices of bacon
salt (to taste)
2 tablespoons butter
- Pound the chicken down to 1/2" thick each.
- Spread each piece of chicken with the cream cheese.
- Sprinkle salt on top of the cream cheese mixture. Add a pat of butter.
- Roll the chicken and wrap the bacon pieces around the chicken. Secure with a toothpick.
- Bake uncovered for 35 - 40 minutes.
- Broil for the last 5 or 6 minutes to get the bacon to desired crispiness.

American Idol...here's what I think.
Allison - Homegirl, you can sing. Your personality is seriously lacking, but you can sing like no other. I'm a fan. I like the deepness in your voice and think you can really work the stage. I find you entertaining, which is the reason we all watch the show. Keep up the good work.
Anoop - Hmm. I'm torn on you. At first I really liked you, then I thought you were trying way too hard, but then after last night's show, you won me back....for now, at least. I think I'd like to see you stay around for a few more weeks just to see what else you have up your sleeve.
Danny - Oh, Danny. What can I say. I love you! I have loved you since the beginning. You sing well, you're cute and you have a touching story. I hope you make it to the final two.
Lil - First of all, what is your real name? Adam thinks it's really Lil, and I think that is just a nickname. Can you clear that one up for us, please? Anyway, you have some serious lungs my friend, but last night was rough for you. Overall, I like you OK, but you're not my favorite by any means. I think I just like you on R&Bish type of songs, period.

Can anyone please share with me how to add the feature on your blog that shows when the last time someone updated their blog? I found something - but it makes you add your links one at a time. Can I do it all at once? Does that make sense? Thanks. I'm tired of blog stalking just to find out there aren't any updates. :)

It's been a while since I posted on a "good deal" so I thought I'd share my Walgreens deal for this week. (And I'm sure some of you savvy shoppers out there have already taken advantage of this deal, but just in case...). Right now in the Walgreens Easy Saver catalog (which you can pick up in the front of the store), there is a $2 off any Garnier Fructis Shampoo, Conditioner or Styler (not including the serum). There have been LOTS of Garnier coupons in the past month or two in the Sunday papers for $1 off. The Garnier products run an average of $2.99 normally. If you combing the Easy Saver coupon plus your manufacturer's coupons, you get FREE stuff! I got everything in the picture below for FREE (other than tax, which was just about a dollar). I am definitely set on hair products for a good while now. Now if I can just get this kind of deal on Aveda products....haha...yeah right!

Nothing exciting, but at least it's a new post!!
One of Rock's favorite places to play...Mom & Dad's closet!
Rocklin modeling his new flip-flops. They sure are cute, but they don't stay on worth a dang!
Due to lack of space, I store my scrapbook/craft stuff in Rocklin's closet. This was a great idea when I first put it in there because Rocklin couldn't even crawl, let alone open the door and pull out all my stuff. As you can see, he's quickly learned that making messes out of Mom's stuff that she "hid" is way too much fun.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck... Yes folks, Rocklin likes to eat wood (and paper, and trash, etc.). I know a lot of babies chew on their crib, but Rocklin's made it a bad habit and I've GOT to get a plastic strip to put on their before he chews it to pieces!! Gee, I sure am glad we decided to spring for the nicer baby furniture.
