WIWW & a few recipes

Needless to say I am lacking in WIWW this week. Mainly because I couldn't get it together last week, I was seriously late every day. I had a really cute outfit planned out but at the last minute wore the wrong pants and couldn't tuck in the top, therefore making it so dern fat day looking it wasn't even funny. I did get one good outfit out of my busted week...but only because it was from this week. 


So here you go, the one and only outfit...boy do I suck this week.
periwinkle sleeveless ruffle top - Loft
khaki blazer with ruffle back- Loft
skinny jeans- Old Navy
khaki wedges- Shoe Carnival

I actually feel like I look 25 in this outfit. Happy dance.

Now for part 2 of this post. The recipes I have been meaning to blog but terribly neglecting.

First up: Roasted Radishes

I recently had a ton of radishes in a recipe, and still had a ton left over. They sat, and sat, and sat until I was worried I was about to waste the poor things. My solution: roasting. Everything taste better roasted. 

Ingredients:
radishes 
salt & pepper
garlic powder
olive oil

Directions:
Preheat over to 425. Toss radishes in S&P, garlic powder, and olive oil (to taste) and roast for about 30-45 minutes (depending on your oven).

Next to raw this is the only way I can stand to eat them...and they taste good. I was surprised at how the texture changed. 

Next: Bacon & Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken
I had concocted this spread a few weeks ago for bagels and had some leftover, so I added a few more ingredients and wa-la best stuffed chicken I have consumed in as long as I can remember. 

Excuse the oh so not styled what so ever picture, I had gobbled mine up before I decided I wanted to blog the recipe. 

Ingredients:
salt & pepper
papprika
garlic powder
thyme
mustard powder
4 large chicken breasts, or 2 small
2 oz cream cheese
1 green onion chopped
2 tbsp bacon chopped
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp blue cheese

Directions:
Mix last 5 ingredients together well. Stuff chicken breasts (2 large or 4 small) with cheese mixture. (I secured the edges with toothpicks) Season to taste with first 5 ingredients. Bake at 375 until chicken is fully cooked. 

I'd give a specific time but my over is crazy and cooks much faster than my mother's. Last recipe of mine she used (since I've been at the new apartment) way over cooked compared to mine. 

Last up: Oven fried Chicken Nuggets
serves 2 
Ingredients:
2 large chicken breasts, or 4 small cut into cubes
3tbsp all purpose flour
1tbsp ground flax seed
3tbsp masa harina
1/2 stick of butter (cut into pieces)
non-stick spray
(next ingredients are to taste)
garlic powder
red pepper
salt & pepper
thyme
onion powder
paprika
gallon zip-lock bag or paper bag

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. Add all dry ingredients to zip-loc bag. Shake until combined. Add chicken and shake until evenly coated. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray. Place chicken on baking sheet in one even layer. Place butter pieces between chicken pieces throughout the pan. Bake for about 15 minutes and then flip chicken and allow to bake for another 15 minutes or until golden brown. 

***side note: that is Cane's sauce on my plate. We had some left over from 5th Quarter and I had no plans to let it go to waste:)
