James, Bethany and I seem to be making a trip to Ground Up Coffee for affogato every weekend….but, it’s so good! James and I went to Bemis library to listen to Blue Sonnet jazz duo. One singer was pretty good, the one that was was playing the piano was much better at piano than singing, but overall it was a nice hour of standards. We went by Phil’s for a drink, then grabbed some items at the store before heading home for pizza night. I didn’t take a pic of them, but the pizzas looked so good. I mad a basil pesto, artichoke, olive, sun dried tomato pizza. We watched some TV, ate pizza and pie and cookies and I went to bed early.
Sunday Grace and I worked in the 2’s room with some very cute children. We played a flashlight game, blew bubbles, watched a cartoon about Paul, did a craft, colored and played. After church we headed by the library Goodwill and Payless, we ended up eating sandwiches at Ba Le for lunch instead of Dim Sum (oh, the line!) We went for a walk at Westlands park and I finally saw the Counterpoint art there.
We watched some TV back at home, read, went to PetCo and then James and I went to TNO where there were 6 Moms that showed up (that’s way more than any other TNO in a long time.) It was fun.

Chicken Cordon Bleu
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 slices Swiss Cheese, cut into halves
4 slices ham
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Shredded Parmesan Cheese
4 teaspoons melted light margarine
Place each chicken breast between two pieces of wax paper. Pound to 1/4-inch thickness. Spread mustard down center of each chicken breast; sprinkle with thyme. Top each chicken breast with a half slice of Swiss cheese and a slice of ham. Roll up chicken breast, tucking in ham and cheese to seal. Secure with skewers or toothpicks.
Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in small bowl. Brush chicken with melted margarine and roll in crumb mixture. Place in 8×8-inch baking pan. Bake in preheated 400 degrees F oven 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 20 minutes more or until chicken is cooked through. Remove toothpicks before serving.
