Chicken Saltimbocca, Harry Balls and the Fine Art of Sharing

Although it isn’t Freaky Friday yet, I figured I really couldn’t wait to share this.  I do what I can.  Also check out this link to learn more about the online voting for the Harry Baals Government Center.

And to keep the sharing going, I figured I would also include another quote from Beyond Scared Straight.  “This is the Shakedown Room.  We call it the Shakedown because that is where you get shook down…butterball naked.  The CO will tell you turn around.  He gonna tell you put your left hand on your left cheek, put your right hand on your right cheek and SPREAD EM!  Then he gonna tell drop and squat.  A grown man looking at another man’s butthole.  DO YOU WANT ANYBODY LOOKING AT YOUR BUTTHOLE?!”
But no the sharing isn’t over, I also included the recipe for the dinner I made last night.  So good!  Hope you enjoy...lawd knows we did!
