It's all about the weekend and the food

OK by the time this post up, we will have been out of town for the weekend. And it was one of the best weekends I have had.

We spent the weekend in Houston with some great friends that I really consider my family. And we swam till we were completely water logged. Ate some of the best homemade guacamole I have ever had. And got to love on three very sweet children.

When we got home Sunday, I volunteered to cook dinner. I know Hubs usually does all of the cooking but I figured I would give him a break. That and I saw a fabulous recipe earlier in the week that Jo-Lynne of Musings of a Housewife had talked about that I wanted to try. (I linked directly back to her post with the recipe since it was a few days ago.)

Shaved Parmesan Chicken & Lemon Creme.

It was awesome!! The recipe is lengthy but not hard, so that is one reason I linked back to her, which will take you to another blog for the original recipe. And the second reason is Jo-Lynne's blog is pretty fantastic. But don't take my word for it, go check it out.

Any way, back to me cooking dinner.

I will tell you this, I did ask Hubs to help me and he graciously stayed in the kitchen.

It was a great summer dish. Light, not heavy and we served it with a salad and nothing else.

I do know this, I will definitely need to buy more mushrooms, most of them were gone. And there were some pretty clean plates when we got done too.

Here's a picture of the finished product...

Now if there was only smell and taste on here. YUM!
