You have a cough? Go home tonight; eat a whole box of Ex-Lax – tomorrow you’ll be afraid to cough. - Pearl Williams

Sick… sick…sick  :(

My girls and I have taken up camp in my bed while Ninja does Tylenol checks, Kleenex throw outs, and diffuser refills. This is HoneyBear's first real cold and SydneyBean is running just a slight fever… while I am probably just run down from lack of sleep plus a sore throat and headache J

This is a dish we had a while back and a post I had already started.

Chicken in Boursin Mushroom Sauce
Adapted from Baked Bree

4 chicken breasts
1 cup mushrooms
1 minced shallot

1 clove garlic, pressed
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup Boursin Cheese

Dry chicken breasts with paper towels and season both sides well with salt and pepper. 

Put a swirl of oil in a pan over medium-high heat.  Cook chicken until brown then turn over, about 5 minutes and reduce heat to medium, cover.  Cook about 15 minutes until the chicken reaches 160 degrees.  Transfer to a plate and cover. Add the mushrooms and a dollop of butter to the pan.

Add the shallot and garlic and cook until onions begin to soften. Deglaze the pan with the wine.  Cook until the wine cooks almost all of the way out.

Take the pan off of the heat and stir in the Boursin cheese. 

Pour the sauce over the chicken and season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with parsley.

Veggie Braid

Puff pastry
1 onion, diced
1 small zucchini, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 pepper, diced
1 leek, whites only, sliced
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of ½ lemon
1 egg

*You can put whatever veggies you have in the fridge*

Put a swirl of oil in a pan over medium-high heat and add garlic. After about 1 minute add the mushrooms. When all the liquid is gone take them out and put aside.

Add more oil and add all the veggies. Sauté, then add the thyme. Mix in the mushrooms. Season with salt & pepper.

Roll out your dough into a rectangle. Pretend it is a butterfly. Leave the body all the way down the middle and slice strips on both sides angled down. I should have taken a picture of this sorry L. Once it is ready place your veggie mixture all the way down the “body”. Cross the strips over each other and brush with egg.

You can kinda see the "braid" here

Pop into the oven following the directions on the pastry box. Add a few more minutes just to make sure it’s brown and flaky.

I put it back in the oven because this just isn't brown enough :)
