Dance Party!

Don't you love this song? And the music video? I should have lived in the 70s, big hair and disco, count me in! We've been wearing this song out at our home. Bradley likes it because of the chord progression in the verses (whatever that means) and I like it because it makes me wanna dance like a crazy person. It makes cooking dinner way more fun!

So what have I been cooking when I'm rocking out to Josh Turner? I've been pounding some chicken with a mallet and the results are amazing! Chicken stuffed with swiss cheese and broccoli is now the preferred version of chicken in my home.

This picture is horrible, please excuse it. I had already started scarfing down my dinner before I realized I needed a picture, and then it was too dark and I was too hungry to care that much what it looked like. Now, unfortunately this picture may be what prevents you from trying this chicken and I must beg you to reconsider! Make this for dinner tonight. Thank you.
