Small Update

It has been awhile since I have posted.  It is still a little hard to believe 2012 is over and we are already three months into 2013.  Time flies.

I do not have much to say tonight, but I felt like writing.  I guess I will start by saying (for posterity, since everyone probably already knows) I had corrective eye surgery last August.  My eyesight recently returned, hence the lack of posts since July.  Just kidding.  It was a rather spontaneous decision, but I have not regretted it (except the first week).  I now have 20/15 vision, which is better than 20/20.  I love not wearing glasses, and personally, I think I look better without them.  :-)

I also withdrew from school late last year.  I needed time to renew myself, rediscover who I am and what I want, and resolve some personal issues.  I do want to return and finish my degree one day, but I am thankful for the break.  I regret not finishing sooner than I had hoped, but I felt postponing a formal education was necessary for my mental health and stability.

Those are two of the biggest changes in my life since the last post, but I hope others are coming soon.  That is all I will say at the moment.

Because I am still working on the blog challenge, I will end with a recipe.  My "wives" (yes, a gay man can have wives), Deborah and Christa, and I made this for dinner a few weeks ago, and it was easy and tasty.  (Actually, I will add the recipe later when I have access to a computer.  I am typing this on my Samsung Galaxy tablet using a bluetooth keyboard, and I am getting frustrated with correcting the many mistakes caused by it.  Ugh.)

Crispy Cheddar Chicken


4 breasts chicken, boneless and skinless
2/3 cup milk
3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups Progresso Italian Breadcrumbs
2 tablespoon butter, melted
1 (18 ounce) can Progresso Creamy Three Cheese cooking sauce
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut each breast of chicken into 3 pieces. Dip each piece into milk, then cheddar cheese, then Italian breadcrumbs. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover with foil.
  2. Bake chicken in preheated oven for 25 minutes, then remove foil, baste with melted butter, and cook 10-12 additional minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and coating is golden brown.
  3. While chicken is cooking, place the Progresso Cooking Sauce into a small saucepan and simmer until reduced in half.
  4. Remove chicken from oven and place on platter. Spoon sauce over chicken. Top with fresh parsley. Serve and enjoy!


  1. haha...I didn't know you had corrective eye surgery! I hope to look into it someday, but haven't bothered doing my homework on any long-term side effects.

    1. I highly recommend getting it done if you can!
