This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

You may notice I use a lot of cheese. Yes I do. I love cheese.
For this I use chicken breasts, nice plump ones. For 4 of us 4 nice size breasts.
You need to saute the chicken in butter with salt and pepper. I always use butter for cooking rather than oil. Just my taste. When they are brown and part cooked add the following.

When you have added the diced tomato and spaghetti sauce also add in the following
dried or fresh garlic
fresh rosemary
fresh basil
Italian herbs.
I know all this is probably in the sauce but I like to add my own as well. If you dont have fresh herbs use dried.
I let this simmer until the Chicken is cooked

Add a can of green beans (drained)

Just before its time to serve add a handful of shredded cheese on each chicken breast

I cover the pan until the cheese is melted and then serve
This time we had a side of Spaghetti Squash. Yummy

To cook the squash I cut in half. Put 1/2 on plate and micro wave 15 mins bottom up on plate so that it steams itself. (Hole down)
Do the other half and shred into a bowl when done with salt and pepper and a pat of butter.
