Well ... dinner was a hit! So I'm posting my recipes here. These were experiments (my own made up recipes) and they were great!

Mushroom Shallot Rice

In a small pan- saute chopped mushrooms, chopped shallots with a few pats of butter and a tablespoon of worchestshire sauce

In a sauce pan, bring one of beef stock to a boil. Add 1 cup of white rice and the mushroom/shallot mix.

Turn on low for 20 minutes with the top on (like regular rice)

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Prep: one bowl of whisked egg - one bowl of bread crumbs with a tablespoon of garlic salt
Get out a piece of deli ham and a piece of swiss cheese for every chicken breast

Cut a slit in the side of each chicken breast (like you were going to butterfly it) ... make a pocket. Take your ham, put a slice of cheese in it, roll it up and place it in the pocket of the chicken. Holding the chicken closed, dip it in the egg, the roll all sides in the breadcrumb mixture

Place all breasts in a baking dish and place two pats of butter (spaced out) on each breast

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes

It was a BIG hit! We both loved dinner - this is for sure going to be in my rotation! Tomorrow is my PT session at the gym- so the next dinner is Wednesday night- BLT's ... I am going to add avacodos to my sandwich to add fiber.
