I have to start this post by saying that my husband is AMAZING. On Friday, it snowed all day. My husband wasn’t able to get to work, so we got to stay in and enjoy ourselves. I organized my craft room, and it’s now my favorite room in the entire house, even though it smells like dog pee because we’ve yet to get the carpet cleaned since having puppies pee in the room. I know – it’s pretty disgusting and completely un-Martha, but it hasn’t been high on the priority list.
Because it took me most of the day to organize my craft room and I was on my feet the whole day, my back starting acting up. I took a muscle relaxer and could barely keep my eyes open as we watched a little television before dinner. My husband suggested that I take a nap and relax. I told him to wake me up in 30 minutes, so I could fix chicken parmigiana from the February 2010 edition of Martha Stewart Living. He said that he would; however, he didn’t wake me up. Instead, he cooked dinner while I slept for the next 90 minutes and woke me up 10 minutes before it was ready. Isn’t that completely sweet? I’m pretty lucky.I was skeptical about this recipe, because it’s listed in the same “Fit to Eat” article as the bland broccoli and cheese casserole. When I stumbled my way into the kitchen, I was delighted by the smell of chicken, garlic, cheese and tomatoes and was even more delighted when I tasted this dish. I couldn’t believe that it was only 307 calories per serving. Martha deserves serious credit for this one. I loved it so much that I couldn’t wait to have it again for lunch the next day.
