To Jump in the mouth is the literal translation from the Italian word “Saltimbocca”. Today we are enjoying a delicious Chicken Saltimbocca, which is a chicken cutlet with leaves of fresh sage pressed on the raw cutlet followed by a slice of prosciutto, floured lightly, and then sautéed in a pan. After the cutlets are cooked they are removed to a plate and tented. The drippings of the pan are used to make a light wine and chicken broth sauce. The chicken is returned to the sauce and then served, chicken that will jump right into the mouth. We will accompany this chicken dish with Potatoes Anna, which are thinly sliced potatoes stacked in a 9-inch skillet and baked in butter. Mmmm. Our veggie today is zucchini slices that are lighted encrusted in a parmesan cheese bread crumb mix. All these mouth-watering foods will be quickly jumping in my mouth for sure.
Today I share a quote by Winston Churchill. It’s a quote the reminds us that as great as our imagination can be, there are times that our imagination can betray us.
