Undies, Chicken Parmesan & Crescent Cinn Rolls

Hey there!  Does anyone else have a hard time throwing away your kids’ old underwear and socks?  I mean, it’s not like they wear them out and get holes in them, they grow out of them too quickly, so right there I feel like I’m being wasteful.  And their first pairs of undies? Forget it, they are way too cute to just toss out, right?  But there is no way I’m saving Aiden’s old grown-out-of undies for when Brennan could fit in them, ew!  We just went underwear and sock shopping this weekend so I am tossing all of their old undies and socks and I feel so bad doing it!  I don’t really have an emotional attachment to Aiden’s, they’re bigger and ugly with Lego Star Wars characters on them, but Brennan’s are still small and cute with Toy Story characters on the buns.  I guess I’d better just close my eyes and toss them, how weird would that be in 20 years when I’m cleaning out the basement and run across their old, used undies?

Here are two quick and easy recipes for you.

Chicken Parmesan

2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (my meat counter gives the full, complete chunky breast so I cut mine in half through the thickness to make 2 thinner breasts out of 1 thick one, you want to end up with 4 either way)

1 jar spaghetti or marinara sauce

1 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded

1 pkg Italian Shake-N-Bake (and I helped!) (this can be left off to save those calories and carbs)


Bake the boobies at 400 degrees for 20 minutes after coating them in the Shake-N-Bake.  Then pour the sauce over and sprinkle on the cheese, bake another 10-15 minutes, until cooked through.  Done!  You can serve over pasta if you like.  And of course I forgot an ‘after’ picture – sorry!


Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

I made these up one morning for breakfast.  They are probably a recipe somewhere but I just winged it and made it up as I went.

1 pkg. crescent rolls


cinnamon and sugar mix


Okay, open the rolls and unroll them, but leave them together as a rectangle.  Spread butter over the dough, then sprinkle a good layer of cinn/sugar over them.  This is where you carefully separate the rolls into the triangles and roll them up into the crescents.  Bake as directed but add 5 minutes to the baking time.  Easy peasy!  And super yummy!  And quick!


Give these a try sometime, they are quick and easy! 

They are calling for 8” of snow in these parts tomorrow night.  And a lot of wind which will blow that stuff around and make a heck of a mess.  Great.  Why can’t we have an early spring again like last year?  I’m needing it!

Have a great Wednesday!
