It's very rare that I cook - I am NOT, repeat NOT, Martha Stewart, Paula Dean, Rachel Ray, Cat Cora, or any of those other brilliant TV chefs. I enjoy watching THEM cook very much (usually while munching on some non healthy, pre-made snack food!). Today was one of those rare days. I got this recipe from a co-worker and since it sounded, well, me-proof, I gave it a shot. The dish starts with BBQ chips (seriously!)

Two boneless chicken breasts, split and trimmed:

and some melted butter:

Crush up the chips - Next time I do this, I will crush them up a bit more - they were a bit coarse and didn't stick to the chicken as well as I would have liked.

Coat the chicken in butter and roll in the chips - note there are only three pieces here to head for the oven... There was not much room in the pan for the last piece, so it got cut up for the dogs... YUMMY!!
After an hour in the oven at 350 degrees: It was pretty moist and very tasty. You could also try this with regular chips and add some different seasonings to them. Martha will probably try this with her weird vinegar chips!! Ewwwwww!!!

Bad to the Nylabone...

I wanted a Flip to use for training - watching my agility runs and all that, but... I have been having more fun just filming the every day stuff these guys do.

What NOT to do... don't teach your puppy that slippers are a fun toy. Vinnie LOVES these slippers. I would feel more inclined to put a stop to the behavior if it carried over to other shoes or he did it when I was actually walking, but he only shows interest in them if I am sitting down or if I am not wearing them. Really, a behavior like this could turn into a very bad thing... Tammy, you know which dog I am thinking of... I'd have to keep treats in my pockets :-)

From yesterday... another fun time was had by all (well... Vinnie) in the snow:
Thanks for the toy Auntie Michele!!

Gotta luv the Wubba! Thanks Melissa - it doesn't squeak!
