 Tonight's Meal : Slow cooker Chicken Parm

Tonight's dinner is slow cooker chicken Parm. Pasta is a favorite in our house with the exception of my teen daughter who loves anything chicken, so put the two together and everyone wins. On top of it all, Mom gets to use the slow cooker which, makes it an easy dinner and Ta-da we have a winner!

Here is tonight's recipe:

Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan

2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (I cut mine into strips, to make them into more reasonable serving sizes for the kids)
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 egg, beaten
4-6 slices mozzarella cheese
1 jar (28-ounces) favorite marinara sauce

Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the bottom of the crockpot stoneware.
In a medium bowl, beat egg.  In second medium bowl, mix the bread crumbs, spices, and grated Parmesan cheese all together.

Dip chicken in beaten egg and then toss into bread crumb mixture to coat completely on both sides.  Place chicken breasts on bottom of crockpot.  Place a layer of mozzarella slices on top of breaded chicken breasts.  Cover cheese layered chicken with entire jar of sauce.

Place lid of crockpot securely on and turn heat to LOW for 6-7 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.  Serve over cooked pasta of your choice.

Today's Chore : Main floor Bathroom

 The chore I dread the most is cleaning the bathrooms, I think it's a mixture of the grossness of it and the fact that I have 2 to clean....
but alas it must be cleaned and it doesnt seem like I have any volunteers lining up to do it for me.

My main floor bath is the easier of the 2 bathrooms, it is smaller and the tub is only used to bath my youngest son. However, since it is on the main floor it has the most used toilet and sink...gross.....

My procedure is pretty simple, start at the door and end with the toilet. I spray everything down with cleaner, and use a toilet bowl under rim cleaner. I wear gloves which saves my mental state from touching the gross stuff and also protects my skin. My manicurist once told me " if you wouldn't put your face in it, don't put your hands in it" So I highly suggest wearing gloves every time you clean.

I mark a little "B" with permanent marker on my bathroom gloves and a "K" on my kitchen gloves. You probably don't want to mix the two up ;)

I then proceed to wipe everything down with a hot wet rag, the tub gets rinsed extra since I don't want any of the chemicals being left behind in the tub for my little guy.

Toilet is last since it is the germiest, and gets a good scrub in the bowl and a hefty wipe down with a hot wet rag.

I do a quick vacuum ( since that is where we blow dry our hair and believe me the amount of hair that gets onto our floors is insane!) a quick swiffer as well, toss the bath mats in the wash and there you have it! 

Today's Goal : Work out for 30 minutes during nap time

Well my goal again today was to have a 30 minute work out session, however we were waiting to have a few things done in the house by our handyman and he became available, so I'm sure you can side with me when I say that, I probably wouldn't want the guy to catch me doing the UFC trainer on Wii...hahahaha

Proof that there were indeed workmen at my house! LOL

Product of the day: Lysol Power Free Bathroom Cleaner

This is a fairly new product on the market and there are a whole line of different products.

This is their spiel:

LYSOL® Power & Free™ Bathroom Cleaner is a powerful cleaner without the harshness of bleach. The hydrogen peroxide formula releases thousands of micro bubbles that penetrate to dissolve lime scale and rust stains.
  • Kills 99.9% of viruses & bacteria
  • No bleach harshness
  • No gloves, masks or protective eye wear needed
  • No harsh chemical residue
  • Leaves a fresh clean scent

I used it to clean my bathroom today and here are my thoughts:


- Clean fresh scent
- Well priced
- Cleaned surfaces well
- No strong chemicals


- There should be an option for a mist spray on the nozzle, it sprays in a strong stream and is not always pleasant as it goes everywhere including the walls
- Could work a little better on soap scum, but with a little elbow grease it got the job done

Im happy with this product and look forward to trying their other cleaners as well!

Happy Tuesday everyone!
