Chicken Parmesan #SundaySupper

Here were are this Sunday Supper and already talking about Back To School! If your like my house back to school also means back to sports.  Busy weeknights of homework and practice call for a meal that can pull double duty-one night dinner, tomorrow leftovers or freezing half for dinner when dirtying dishes is the last thing you want to do.

Chicken Parmesan | Bottom Left of the Mitten

This week I have been seeing TONS of back to school pics because we live very close to Indiana who start right now.  I’m saying to myself, ‘We still have 4 weeks!’. Did you know that in Michigan it is the law you cannot start until after Labor Day? Some schools are starting to challenge it and getting waivers but for us, I am so glad that it’s that way.  I really feel like it gives kids time to enjoy more of the warmer months. We are getting ready though because it will be here soon enough.  So with that, let’s get to the food.

Chicken Parmesan | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Grease a 9×13 pan then cover the bottom with some of the spaghetti sauce.  Start to cook the egg noodles according to package directions.  These are the frozen kind that are found by ravioli in the frozen food section.  While they cook chop the chicken into bite sized pieces. Heat up oil in the pan and get ready to fry the chicken.  On a plate add the bread crumbs, flour and parmesan cheese.  One the oil is heated take the chicken and dredge in the crumb mixutre then add to the hot oil.  Fry chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side until thoroughly cooked through and super crisp.  This is the key to a great casserole.  Both the noodles and the chicken should take around 15-20 minutes to finish.

Drain the noodles and now it’s time to layer.  One layer noodles, one layer chicken, one layer cheese, one layer sauce.  Do it one more time then top with remaining cheese.  Yes, use the whole bag! Sprinkle with garlic powder and parsley for a little extra oomph.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.  And here you are…..

Cream Cheese Slider Sandwiches #SundaySupper

Heading out to a picnic?  These little slider sandwiches with big flavor are perfect because they are very portable.  The sweetness of the roll mixed with savory cream cheese and deli meats can be rich but also addicting.  Limit yourself to one then treat yourself to a great picnic dessert like my Piña Colada Upside Down Cake.

This week started 3 day work weeks for my husband.  Normally he already works 4-10 hour shifts so with enough saved up vacation time he took another day off every week until September.  Plenty of time to have fun in the pool and discover new places that we haven’t visited yet is on our agenda. This past week alone took Little A to his very first trip to SkyZone and a zoo that was truly amazing.

Then of course we will be hitting the usual places that we love:

Head over to St. Joseph, MI for the Splash Pad and grab a slice of pizza at Silver Beach Pizza
Visit the animals at Potawatomi Zoo – The oldest zoo in Indiana.
Central Park in Mishawaka – Our newest find! A smaller splash pad and play area. The perfect place to have a picnic!
Make sure to catch a South Bend Cubs game.

See the area that we live in is coined ‘ Michiana’.  On the boarder of Michigan and Indiana.  Head to Kalamazoo or to South Bend  in equal time.  Plus we are about equally 2-1/2 hours from Detroit, Indianapolis and Chicago.  So many possibilities but since we aren’t giant planners we will have to just see where the Summer takes us.  Now on to the picnic food!

Sweet Hawaiian rolls make the perfect bun for these sandwiches.  These slider buns come in a a package that can be used to get them where they are going.  First let’s make the herbed cream cheese.  Take 1 block of cream cheese and make sure it’s softened.  Mix in garlic powder, oregano and parley then stir to combine.

Cut the buns in half placing the bottom half back into the box that the rolls originally came in. Spread half of the cream cheese on the buns.  Layer ham, sliced tomatoes then the turkey pastrami.  Taking the top half put the rest of the cream cheese on it then put on top.  All done!  You are picnic ready in less than 10 minutes.

After the sandwiches have been assembled here is a great way to transport them to your favorite picnic location-use the packaging from the rolls.  Since they were made right in the paper tray now just cover with two pieces of plastic wrap and put back into bag.  Tie with plastic tie and you are ready!  Place the sandwiches at the top of your cooler so they don’t get flattened.  And here your are….
