Jim requested some chicken parmesan as part of his challenge. I've never really been a huge fan, mostly because I associate it with having been served in the cafeteria when I was a kid. But this is an entirely different story.
I've always been more partial to spaghetti and meatballs. But this chicken parmesan might take the cake.
I guess I like keeping my spaghetti intact so I can twirl it around my fork...but I don't mind it if it means I get to eat delicious breaded chicken.
This is a short one. I'm really tired, but I'll be working days soon! Here's to normal work hours.
