You know the drill...I think everyone does the same thing around 3rd - 6th grade.
Anywho, enjoy these green photos to celebrate the occasion.
Broccoli. Need I say more? Sometimes I throw some of this stuff in my green smoothie. Seriously.

Hello. It's me.
I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet..
to go over everything
They say that time's supposed to heal ya
But I ain't done much healing...
Yes...you read that right. It's me and I'm back!
After such a long sabbatical I'm craving a little comfort food. Nothing and I mean nothing sounds better than Broccoli, Chicken and Bacon Fettuccine. Can I hear an "amen"?
I want to give a little shout out to my girl Leslie Ogden for igniting my desire to continue this blog. I hope you like this recipe.
Let's get started...
Collect your ingredients.
Broccoli, Chicken and Bacon Fettuccine
adapted from Julia's album
1 Tbs. olive oil
11/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast
3 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 c heavy cream
2/3 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheese (I used an Italian blend. You can use Parmesan, Mozzarella or a combo)
9 oz fettuccine
2 c broccoli florets
7-10 strips bacon, cooked
salt and pepper as desired
Chop broccoli and brown bacon until crispy.
Fill pot with water and follow package directions to cook fettuccini noodles. When 2-3 minutes remain in cooking pasta, add chopped broccoli until bright green and fork tender. Drain.
Heat olive oil on medium heat in a large skillet. Season chicken generously with salt and pepper. Cook chicken breast on high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, until browned. Remove skillet from heat and keep the chicken covered to continue cooking it in its own steam until no longer pink. You can also use pre-cooked chicken. Slice chicken into thin slices.
Add minced garlic to the skillet. Add heavy cream and milk. Bring to a boil. Add cheese and stir till it completely melts (don't boil).
Add cooked pasta and broccoli and cooked bacon to cheese sauce and mix it in. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with sliced, cooked chicken. Yum!
