I was talking with my mom and I decided that I would spend the next year celebrating as many holidays and occurrences as possible. I think there are around 300 holidays a month!
My mom and I have always loved all the peculiar holidays and have had many laughs discussing them. I think this year will be a lot of fun but it will also require a lot of dedication, time, and it wont be without costs. I will give you once a week up dates once I get it started (Probably next month) and I will post daily journalings as often as possible. I have a feeling I will be rather busy.
I am home schooled which I believe will make this a whole heap easier, but also more challenging. Mom made an agreement with me... For this year I will use this as a lot of my school work. I will be writing reports on many of these days and I will be doing loads of research. I look forward to this coming year and I hope you will enjoy following my blog.
Feel free to post your comments along the way.

National Chicken Cordon Bleu day

4 chicken breasts - pounded flat
4 slices swiss cheese
8 slices ham or proscuitto
1 cup flour (can reduce this a bit)
1 tsp paprika
2 eggs
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 Tbsp herbs (we used some bells seasoning, parsley, oregano)
salt and pepper

Lay out one of the flattened chicken breasts. On the chicken lay 2 slices of ham and one slice of cheese. Roll up the chicken and use toothpicks or skewers to secure.

In a bowl mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and paprika. Beat the eggs with 2 Tbsp of water, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix herbs with the bread crumbs in another bowl. Roll the chicken in the flour mixture. Then dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then roll in the bread crumbs.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken in a baking pan or on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown and the juices run clear.
