Just had to buy a new hair straightener.  I swear, I buy one at least every year.  This time, one side stopped heating up.  Come to find out, that really makes a difference in how well it straightens hair.  Who knew?  Anyway, this time I paid $5 to get the extended warranty which lasts 2 years.  I figure if I buy it, I probably won't have to use it.  But it's there if I need it!
I'm about to eat some deep-fried mozzarella sticks for lunch.  There's one New Year's resolution out the window.  I might follow that up with some frozen Heath bars.  I'm also not jumping into my upstairs cleaning like I wanted to.  Resolution number 2, not going as I had anticipated!  Maybe I'll be in the mood after the junk food.
JJ's in bed with a fever.  Hoping it's short-lived. 
Got a car wash today.  The car looks great.  Found out JJ doesn't like car washes so much.
Ahh, I smell the grease calling.  Happy Friday.

Chicken Bacon YUM!

I should have taken a picture.
But it was too yummy to pause for even a moment. 
I found the general idea here and just tweaked it a bit for quantity, mostly.  And my picky hubby.  Here's what to do:
Fry up about 6 slices of bacon.  Or 10 if you feel like snacking.  Once the bacon is done, remove it from the pan and dump out the grease.  DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT wipe or wash out the pan.  Just don't.
Into the bacon-y pan add 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Place 3 chicken breasts in there and cook on both sides until done.  Remove them from the pan and place them in an ungreased baking dish. 
Into the bacon-y and now chicken-y pan (you haven't removed anything after the chicken, right?!) add 1/4 of an onion, grated and about 1 and a half teaspoons of garlic...2 cloves?  I was working from a jar.  Cook the onion and garlic a few minutes then crumble in the bacon strips. 
Spoon the bacon/onion/garlic mixture onto each of the chicken breasts, then sprinkle with cheddar cheese.  Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
Your taste buds will thank you!
