Showers of good wishes

Saturday we had a couples shower for Bonnie and Andy...I can't believe the wedding is coming up so soon! It was a perfect afternoon- the weather was fantastic, and we partied from about 2pm to 2am...very casual, very low key...very fun...just like my bestest :)

an oldie, but goodie

I had to scan an older photo for my Electronic Production class today, and I came across one of me and my 'little' brother at his High School graduation back in June I thought I'd share with the class :)

What I'm Working on...Wednesday :)

my newest endeavor in jewelry making...Resin! I'm dying to break open my new Easy Cast epoxy resin and start figuring it out...if only I had the time :P but for now...the resin and the molds are sitting in wait until I can plan a day to play

also, these fun pendants are waiting to be made into necklaces for the upcoming Great Grapes Wine Festival (in Hunt Valley, June 13-14th) I snagged them at the Gem Show last weekend!

Tuesday's Recipe of the Week!

I haven't tried this one yet...but it came to my email today...and it's on my list of meals for next week!

Sautéed Chicken With Corn and Edamame

find the recipe here!

  • 4 ounces sliced bacon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups corn kernels, fresh (from 2 ears) or frozen
  • Heat oven to 400° F.
  • In a large skillet, over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Discard the drippings.
  • Wipe out the skillet and heat the oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking dish and roast until cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the onion to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 8 minutes. Add the edamame and corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Break the bacon into pieces and add them to the killet. Stir in the remaining salt and pepper. Spoon onto individual plates and serve with the chicken.
