Tues. night dinner

I cooked "Open face chicken cordon bleu" for dinner last night but changed the recipe a bit.
First off I used only one chicken breast for the two of us and pounded it out to make it equal in thickness. Then drenched it in flour with salt and pepper before browning it on one side in butter in my frying pan. After turning it over I put the ham and then cheese on top and removed the pan covered from the burner and let it sit until the cheese melted. Was great!! No need to heat up the oven as it said to do since the meat was thinner and cooked quicker.

I also tried this...

It was very simple....canned pears, pepper, a small amount of miracle whip and cheese.
I didn't care for the miracle whip but did like the rest of it and it was a quick little side with all of it chilled ahead of time.

Also found a great lunch idea:
1 pkg. ramen noodle (flavor of your choice) with the seasoning packet.
1 pkg, frozen stir fry vegetables.
Bring two cups of water to a boil and add the above. Cook until veg. are tender and add soy sauce to taste. Yum!

May I come over to your house for meals? You are fixing some great dishes. I think I'd skip the Miracle Whip, too.

It just so happens I have a small ham in the crock pot for today's meal and I bought boneless chicken breast at the small grocery store in Mart on Saturday and popped it in the freezer. This will be a perfect lunch later this week!

The chicken sounds so good, and I love that idea for veggies!

My mother fixed something like this with a dab of cottage cheese and a maraschino cherry. She would fix it with pears or pineapple slices on a leaf of lettuce.
