Organize It!

I stumbled across a great new blog that will help me (and maybe you) get your house and life organized. Maria has created a blog called Project Organization (365 days of the year). She says the goal is to de-clutter, re-organize, and to turn a chaotic room into a Zen-sational area. Sometimes de-cluttering and re-organizing can be a spiritual experience. LOL!

Maria promises to post each day an organization challenge and when done, she'll post an update with a photo of the completed task.

Today's challenge is to fold, hang, and put away all your clean laundry. I know I have a few laundry baskets that have clean laundry in need of folding & putting away so I will be joining today's challenge.

Stuffed Chick Cordon Bleu

I just wanted to share this very yummy one serving chicken dish.

HG's Stuffed Chick Cordon Bleu

One 5-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
1 oz. (about 3 slices) 97 - 98% fat-free ham slices
salt and black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put chicken in a large sealable plastic bag, squeeze out as much air as you can, and seal. Using a meat tenderizer or a can, carefully pound chicken through the bag until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Remove chicken from the bag, and season to taste with salt and pepper on both sides.

Lay the chicken flat and spread the cheese wedge over it. Evenly layer the ham slices on top of the cheese. Starting with one of the longer sides (or any side, if it's square), tightly roll up the chicken breast cutlet, and secure with toothpicks.

Place chicken roll in a baking dish lined with foil and/or sprayed with nonstick spray, and then cover the baking dish with foil.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Carefully remove the foil covering the dish. Continue to bake (uncovered) for an additional 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

I just ran across a blog that I thought I would share with everyone. Practical Scrappers is a site dedicated to making use of the supplies that we already have on hand and are neglecting. Each week a challenge will be presented to use a specific embellishment or tool.

This week's challenge is called Office Supplies. Angela and Christine challenge you to take on Office Supplies of all kinds: brads, staples, file folders, legal or notebook paper, paper name it! We all have some of these in our stash - now show everyone how you creatively use them!
