yes, there really is something to that buttermilk soaking - even though I despise buttermilk. And almost anything breaded and with cheese gets my vote!
Cheese makes everything better!
You crack me up, woman. :D
What I wanna know is how you can possibly watch those woodworking shows and not become drowsy. My husband watches them...and I promptly find something else to do. ;)
Anyways, that sound way yummy. I will have to try that out. :)
I can watch the shows just fine. Actually trying to make something? That's when I have to leave the room!

And good fish too....
So did you put your nude lipstick on first? It does sound good actually. Here's my cooking tip for the day (from the person wearing no lipstick and a cotton t-shirt.) I got this breading for fish called Zatarain's Bake & Crisp. Normally I just use bread crumbs, which I seasoned, but this box of breading spoke to me in the store. It said, "Buy me, and get some of those nice catfish fillets too." And, damn, it was the best thing I ever ate in my whole life. I don't know if it was just really good catfish or what, but, it was

Re: And good fish too....
I am ashamed to say I do actually own a nude lipstick. It was a promo giveaway, and I'm too cheap to throw it out even though it smells kinda funny.
Zatarain's makes good stuff. I use their cajun spice all the time.
but still, I watch a lot of shows like that. I watch a show faithfully called 'Hows It Made' on the Science chanel. Saturday morning, they were showing how they make hard candy. Ya know, the kind with little flower designs in it the middle?
The universe was sending me a message to go get candy. So I did.
That's my mom's favorite show!
The Universe has been telling me to try the buttermilk trick but for some reason, I have a huge mental block about picking up buttermilk when I'm at the grocery store. Maybe it's not my time. I'm so sad because I drool when I read these posts!
(This is almost as good as a new recipe on your site....but not quite. Hint hint.)
Hey, I was going to cheat and post this as a recipe on my site, but it was too easy to make a recipe out of. (btw bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or until they brown a bit)
How do you feel about asparagus?
LOVE it, it's my favorite veggie...
PLEASE tell me your next idea has something to do with asparagus???

I made some with plain breadcrumbs and no cheese for Husband, who prefers his food to have no flavor.
Why? Why do so many husbands prefer their food to have no flavor? My father-in-law is like this. Must be plain!!! But then he adds a bunch of salt. He doesn't like any other seasoning, however.
YES with the salt!! I swear the man would salt his salt if he could.
Is he a smoker? Because to be fair to my father-in-law, he's actually much milder with the salt these days since he cut down from 3 packs a day to 3 cigarettes a day.
We don't have cable either, we have a satellite dish and DVR! It's all tv, all the time around here. Only, I haven't been watching much tv since May. But, Scott watches tv a lot, a lot, a LOT.
Soaking chicken in buttermilk sounds very odd to me, but I'm going to try it. The breadcrumbs and parmesan sounds wonderful! I'll put that on the menu tomorrow!
It's scary how much tv we watch, even without cable.
I think the thing with the buttermilk is that the lactic acid in the milk tenderizes the chicken. And it's low-fat so you're not adding as much fat as you would with an oil-based marinade.

I made some with plain breadcrumbs and no cheese for Husband, who prefers his food to have no flavor. <--- ROFL because my dh is the same way! Give the man a piece of baked chicken with nothing but salt and pepper on it and he's a happy man.
I happen to have some buttermilk that I need to use up so this is on my menu tonight. Sounds great! BTW - my grandmother used to soak chicken in buttermilk before frying it. It was wonderful.
that was me. sorry 'bout that.
