New adventures...and yummy chicken! from Roxanne Rustand

Best wishes to you all!   I hope you are staying warm--spring can’t be too far away, can it? 

That’s what I keep telling myself when I look at the potentially record-breaking lows predicted for the Midwest this week!

I’d like to share an easy recipe with you.  Our family really likes this one, and I often double it, because the leftovers are even good cold!

1 cup ground pecans (not too fine)
½ c freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup flour
3 beaten eggs
1/3 cup milk
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, flattened
Peanut oil for your electric skillet

1. Combine ground pecans, cheese and flour in a shallow dish
2. Combine eggs and milk in a separate shallow dish
3. Dip chicken thoroughly in the egg mixture, then roll in the dry mixture.
4. Salt, pepper and sprinkle garlic powder on both sides.
5. Put chicken on a platter or rack for ten minutes to let the coating “set”
6. Heat oil to moderately high temp, cook chicken until golden on both sides

On another note...
Back in January, Gail Gaymer Martin posted about her lovely, warm winter getaway home near Sedona.  What a lovely place that is!  And, she posted about working on a longer book that wouldn’t work for Love Inspired, one she is planning to self publish later this year. It was enjoyable to read about what she has been doing in addition to Love inspired, because I love all of her books.  And, I’ve been up to the same sort of project lately.

What an adventure it has been, venturing into this new world!  Comeback Cowboy is already out on Amazon (and other formats),  Summer at Briar Lake is available (as of this month) and A Montana Legacy will be out in April.

While it has been fun trying different things, I love reading (and writing!) the Love Inspired and Love Inspired Suspense books, too, and hope to be back at that in the future.

What have you been up to this winter? Have you tried anything new and different lately?

I am excited about your books, Roxanne. I love to read and will be checking into your books more!
I've kept busy past 3 months with pain injections and physical therapy for back issues.

Wow, the camp is beautiful, Jennifer....what a great place to raise your family.

Thank you, Jackie! Wow--I am so sorry to hear about all you have been going through with back pain, That is NO fun at all. I hope you are all healed and feeling better soon!

Hi Sally, I like snow but I don't care for the cold but yes we are getting more. Maybe we could meet up for tea sometime?
Hi Jackie, I'll be praying for your back to feel better. I'm glad you liked the camp.
