Desk Top Computer/Dinner Tonight

I have a computer to use again. The laptop is terminal so it has gone bye-bye. Gerry took my desk top to the computer guy and he fixed whatever was wrong with it. It is alot faster than it was even though it is running XP. My laptop had Vista. It will take some adjusting to get use to using it again. My desk top has a 19" monitor so it is HUGE compared to the 15 inch laptop screen.

Gerry had picked up the laptop when he took the desk top in to the repair shop. When we went to pick up the desk top, we also took the laptop so the computer guy could copy all my stuff over to the desk top. We specifically told him to be sure to copy all my favorites. Well, unfortunately that didn't happen. So now I've got to figure out what all I had on there...that will certainly be a daunting task. Gerry is going to call him tomorrow and find out what happened.


Here's what I made for dinner tonight:

Oven-Baked Chicken Parmesan

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lbs)
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
1 jar (26 to 28 ounces) Ragu Old World Style Pasta Sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 deg. Dip chicken in egg, then bread crumbs, coating well.
In 9x13 inch glass baking dish, arrange chicken. Bake uncovered 20 minutes.
Pour Ragu Pasta Sauce over chicken, then top with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Serve, if desired, with hot cooked pasta. Serves 4.

I used 1 package of breast steaks. There were 2 pieces. If I make this again, I'll season the chicken a little. It was a little bland. I found this recipe when I was cleaning up in my craft room/office last week. It was okay...just needed some additional seasoning. I was going to cook some pasta, instead cooked rice. The rice didn't go very well with it. And we had more of the fruit salad.

I've got to get the software for my camera on the desk top then I can add pictures. I'm just thankful to have a computer to use again. :) Trying to do things on my phone was not the easiest and I wasn't able to use Gerry's laptop much...


  1. I think it's typical for computer repairmen to always forget to do something. Either that or take longer than they say they will. Funny how your cleaning up your craft room is resulting in new dishes lately.

  2. All is well with what I thought was gone forever. When I discovered my pictures weren't where they should be...I got so frustrated and turned the computer off. I told Gerry and he said "maybe he put them in a folder somewhere. So he went searching and found my favorites and pictures. I just need to get them where they need to be...all my music too. I know, about the recipes...I even found a few that I thought were lost. So I'll be fixing some new "old" stuff. :) I think it is going to be leftovers tonight.
