Sunday funday.....

This  weekend has been filled to the brim with friends. 
And, today, we are filling up our house with all of them....
Our recent college grad has had her college room mates visiting us from far and wide. 
Their youthful spirit and their boundless energy has been intoxicating...and, quite a bit of fun! own college room mate bounced into town--giving me the perfect excuse to gather some of our other college room mates who live in the area for some fun.  
So, it will be a mother-daughter and their college room mates funathon today. 
What a show down this will be....

(Carmen is hunkering down and taking cover!)
I couldn't have even planned for this if I tried.  


As the youthful college room mates sleep off their Saturday night and my college room mate sips her tea on the porch and Carmen is holed up doing his Sunday morning work ritual, I am in the kitchen......

I just put the finishing touches on my world famous, best-ever French Toast that I stole from Alton Brown (by the way, I add some cinnamon and nutmeg to my egg mixture  so really it is MY recipe...but I still give Alton credit) and I stuck bacon in the oven.   There's a hug pot of my Sunday Summer Sauce (it's a version of this sauce) bubbling away on the stove and I'm just about to put this recipe into action....

Chicken Romano with Lemon Butter Sauce...this is so YUM!
(I'm quadrupaling this recipe today!)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup flour
3 eggs
3/4 cups romano cheese
3/4 chicken stock
1/2 stick butter
1 whole lemon
1/3 cup white wine
1/2 tablespoon dried parsley

Preheat oven to 350. Add olive oil to skillet on medium heat.

Tenderize chicken, then dredge through flour, egg and cheese. Place in skillet and brown on both sides. Once brown, turn off heat.

Melt butter in a small sauce pan. Add lemon juice and chopped up lemons. Try to discard all seeds. Add white wine and parsley. Let come to a boil. then pour entire mix into chicken skillet. Add chicken stock to skillet.

Cover and bake for about 20 minutes at 350.

And, we have a few bottles of this wine chilling.  My visiting friend toted a case with her from her recent Sonoma trip.....just for me....does she know me or what??
  Oh, it's a lovely summer wine.....why have I never tasted a Viognier before? 
Anyway, I can guarantee that it's lusciousness will take this Sunday Funday up a notch.
Here's to good friends, good food, good wine and GOOD FUN! 

I hope your Sunday is a fun day too!
