1 ˝ tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 ˝ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon chopped thyme

Directions:
Preheat oven to 475°. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the mustard with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the thyme. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then brush them all over with the mustard mixture. Pat 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan all over each breast. Transfer the chicken breasts to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake the chicken on the top shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until just cooked through and nicely browned.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the remaining mustard and olive oil; stir in 1/2 teaspoon of water. Add the arugula and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and toss well. Spoon the salad onto plates, top with the chicken and serve.

Personal Notes:
Melanies Family Memories of Pa-Paw (Ken Aud, Sr.): Although I wasn’t very old when he passed, my fondest and clearest memory of Pa-Paw is standing in the kitchen with him and my cousin Jason waiting to see the best magic trick I’d ever seen. Jason and I couldn’t have been more than 3 or 4 years old but it feels as though it could have been yesterday. Pa-Paw would smile at us as we eagerly awaited our surprise and then he would ask us to close our eyes for a moment. As quick as a blink, he would ask us to open our eyes and there he stood smiling…but where he teeth had been, there was now just a wide gummy smile! As I’ve grown older, I’ve been told that this side of him was rarely experienced by the adults in his life. I’m so thankful that I was able to be a part of his silly side and to this day, he’s still one of the most magical people I’ve ever known.
My memories of Grammie (Sylvia Aud Polulak) could easily fill a book since I spent the majority of my childhood weekends at Grammie's house. However, one of my favorite memories is from the times that I wasn’t feeling well and Grammie would take care of me. I remember waking up in the morning and Grammie giving me a bell to ring for when I needed her – it made me feel like a princess! She would bring me a bowl of cereal (Fruity Pebbles, my favorite – and one that I wasn’t allowed to have at home) and a piece of toast that was cut the “Grammie” way – in three long strips. To this day, I’ve never seen anyone cut toast like that and I love that it’s something special just from Grammie.
