Long Island Flowers : Planting My Bulbs

Share via email

I love flowers.  I hate how I have no TIME for my flowers.  So, I like easy.  You can not get easier than these bulbs I just bought.

These are some of my ultimate favorites that grow fantastically:

  • Tulips (I try to get both early & middle spring flowering for longer blooms)
  • Narcissus (aka Daffodils.  They are great when planted with Hostas)
  • Allium (My absolute favorite bulb EVER!!! Big, purple flowers.  Who would have thought a flowering onion would be soooo cool?)

Now, I just need to schedule some ‘planting’ time…

Paper Plate Gourmet : Chicken Cordon Dizee

Share via email

Looks & sounds fancy- totally not.  I called it Chicken Cordon Dizee because I used American Cheese instead of Swiss.  Equally Delicious. 

For each breast you will need:

  • Thin Chicken Breast
  • Slice of Ham (I like honey ham)
  • Slice of American Cheese
  • 1 Egg & a splash of milk
  • Bread Crumbs
  1. Heat the oven to 375
  2. Lay chicken breast flat
  3. Layer with 1 slice ham, 1 slice cheese
  4. Roll ‘em up!
  5. Mix the egg & milk, dip that chickeny goodness
  6. Cover it in bread crumbs 
  7. Spritz it with cooking spray/oil
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes
  9. Feel fancy – maybe serve it on a real plate….
3 for the chicken, 2 for the cheese, 1 for the ham, 1 for the egg wash/bread crumbsTotal : 7 points +

Family Fun : Seeing Otto @ Hick’s Nursery in Westbury

Share via email

This weekend I took the boys to see Otto at Hick’s Nursery.  The kids had SUCH a good time (&  I spent way more then I should). 










They have farm animals to pet, a hayride to take & a cute little area where kids can meet ‘Otto’. Make sure to have a roasted corn ear – YUM! Although, there is no way you can count it as only 2 points.
