We went to a wild bird rehabilitation center today for a field trip (and just so you know, March walkers, I walked the whole 2.2 miles there and 2.2 miles back…then came home and had some ice cream).
The children really enjoyed it and I even learned some new things. Did you know that crows can be trained to talk? There was actually a talking crow there! Another thing I didn’t know is that you can tell the difference between a male and female pelican by the length of their bills (a male’s is longer). Also, the white pelican has a hump on it’s beak only during mating season. It then falls off. There were the CUTEST baby pelicans at the center! I didn’t know that the brown pelican chick is fluffy and white.
(serves 12 )
* 3/4 cups olive oil
* 1 1/2 cups chopped onions
* 6 cloves garlic, chopped
* 30 oz. Rotel tomatoes
* 1 cup sugar
* 2 tsp. salt
* 12 boneless skinless chicken breasts
* 1 1/2 cups Italian style bread crumbs
* 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese
* 3 eggs, beaten
* 2 cups mozzarella cheese
In pan heat 6 tbsp. oil on stove over medium heat. Cook onions and garlic in oil 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomatoes, sugar, and salt.
In shallow dish mix bread crumbs and Parmesan. Dip chicken into egg then coat with bread crumb mixture. In large non-stick skillet (we use a huge electric skillet), heat remaining oil over medium heat. Cook chicken in oil 10-15 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in the middle.
Pour sauce around chicken in skillet. Sprinkle cheese over chicken. Cover until melted.
Anyway, please pray for this family and Zachary. He is a very innocent sheltered Christian boy…not a tough street-smart type.
If you have seen him, please call the authorities immediately.
Also, tomorrow, I hope to post an entry answering most of the questions y’all have asked lately.
