THE SEWING GOURMET CREATES ANOTHER DOLLHOUSE DELIGHT...

...it's been a while since The Sewing Gourment made an appearance on the blog, but I was so proud of my accomplishment in making another DollHouse Delight today that I just had to share.  You've heard of the DollHouse - right?, that's where I live.

I've always loved Chicken Parmigiana but was a little timid in trying the recipe.  I love the dish as prepared at the Olive Garden (as well as their Eggplant Parmigiana), but I don't necessarily want to make a trip there to get it every time I want the dish.  It was time for me to step up and give it a try.  Believe it or not, I love manipulating food ingredients as much as I love manipulating fabric and patterns.  Today I Googled many recipes but decided to experiment with this one from Food Network.

CHICKEN PARMIGIANA served at the DollHouse today
I was so very happy with my results!, and it wasn't hard to prepare in a little less than 1 hour.  The hardest part was flattening the chicken breasts with a mallet - I really don't enjoy that part but it is a necessary part of the process.  The recipe even has you make your own marinara sauce and I used fresh basil from my container garden from the back yard.  I served the dish with thin spaghetti and side salad -  and it was delicious!  Surprisingly, it even tastes good cold.  I've never tried it, but some people make this into a sandwich - now that sounds even more wonderful!  Please let me know if you decide to try it, and let me know me know what you think...

  1. Your chicken looks wonderful! I usually do mine without breading because my dearly beloved has "impaired glucose" issues (pre-diabetes to us regular folk), so I cut carbs wherever possible. Your recipe really does look like a perfect replica of Olive Garden's!

    To answer your question, I use a Pentax K-X camera with a 18-55mm lens. I also have a 50-200mm lens, but that isn't of much practical use most of the time. Mostly, I have great subjects and that makes my pictures good!

    Happy Wednesday, Faye.

    1. It was amazingly easy after I set up my production line Cennetta. I was tired of being afraid to try it. It was delish!, and it will become a sandwich next time that I make it!
