Brushetta Chicken

It's delicious, and super easy. :-)

Bruschetta Chicken 

Recipe and Photo Source

what you need

small  boneless skinless chicken breast halves
cup  KRAFT Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing, divided
 tomato, finely chopped
cup  KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese (I use 1/4 cup Mozz and 1/4 cup Parmesan)
cup  chopped fresh basil

grill to medium heat (i chose to broil mine in the oven, which works great too).

make it

PLACE chicken in large resealable plastic bag. Add 2 Tbsp. dressing; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with dressing. Refrigerate 10 min (or longer). Remove chicken from bag; discard bag and dressing.
COVER half the grill grate with sheet of heavy-duty foil.  Place chicken on uncovered side of grill grate; grill 6 min. Meanwhile, combine remaining dressing, tomatoes, cheese and basil.(Or cover a cookie sheet or other pan with aluminum foil and spray lightly with coooking spray. Place chicken on baking sheet. Broil for 5-7 minutes; turn and broil another 5-7 minutes. Top with tomato/Cheese mixture and broil 1 minute until melted.) 
TURN chicken over; place on foil. Top with tomato mixture. Grill 8 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF).

kraft kitchens tips

Marinate chicken in shallow glass dish instead of in the plastic bag.
Serve with hot buttered egg noodles, and grilled or steamed vegetables. (I served with steamed broccoli and rice)
If you don't have fresh basil, you can use 1 tsp. dried basil leaves instead.

Cinderella and Tinker Bell

When I asked my children what they wanted to be for Halloween this year I was not really surprised when I got "CINDERELLA!!!" and  "TINKERBELL!!!" for my answers. (I really did  try to convince them that they would make the cutest little witch and scarecrow ever! but they wouldn't have it.)

I've had the fabric for a month and Friday night I realized that the festivities are starting in a week, and I hadn't even started the costumes yet.  So despite everything else I needed to do I spent two days hunched over my sewing machine working my fingers to the bone.

My neck hurts and my back is sore, but the smiles are always worth it.
They didn't turn out too bad, if I say so myself. 

The girls really got into character for pictures.

FYI: I used the tutorials found on Makeit-loveit.com with a few changes of my own.
